The Singleton of Glendullan 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 1L
Aged in a combination of American and European oak casks for a minimum of 12 years, delivering easy drinking citrus-fresh notes balanced by sweet fruits and soft spices. Citrus- fresh notes of apple and pear, chewy raisins and juicy red strawberries, all perfectly balanced by a smooth drying spiciness.
Nose: Clean and complex; a rich fruitiness (juicy red fruits and raisins, with citrus and boiled fruit sweets underpinning all) that suggests an older malt. Some soft fragrant notes too; scented leather, subtle sandalwood and vanilla. Adding water opens up the classic Speyside fruit-sweet aromas. Fresh, light and clean.
Taste: in brief… Simply smooth, easy to drink and very pleasing. in a sentence… Smooth, sweet, richly fruity and rounded; just the right balance of complexity with plenty of rich, sweet flavour and a clean finish. Palate: Fresh and easy to drink; spicy, then soft and pleasantly sweet throughout, with no rough edges. Fruity, with citrus and raisins. Vanilla and a hint of honey, with just a subtle trace of wood; a maple-syrup sweetness. Nutty too. A good spread of flavours. Reduced, still sweet, now attractively balanced.
