The Singleton of Glendullan 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 1.0 Litre 40%
Our 15 year old single malt scotch whisky is matured in a high proportion of American oak casks with a small portion of European oak casks to balance the liquid. The result is an easy to enjoy single malt with delicious citrus aromas, smooth fruity palate and a well balanced slightly spicy finish. Tasting notes:Perfectly balanced, naturally rich and smooth. Nose: Sweet, soft and inviting. Mild at first; rich and dense, with traces of spice and sweet wood from extra oak aging. A chocolate note introduces concentrated fruit, as with sultanas and hints of bittersweet orange in a fruit cake mix, spiced with cinnamon. There’s milky coffee too, with just a trace of beeswax. Water brings up that note as polished leather to back the dry chocolate but also allows a big, sweet vanilla/butterscotch character to come through, reminiscent of peanut toffee or nougat. Taste: in brief… A mature, elegant and smooth Singleton with plenty of fruit and spice from selected European and American oak casks. in a sentence… A very well balanced whisky that is richer, rounder and sweeter than younger expressions, and also has an attractive spicy finish. Palate: Vibrant; sweetly fizzing with juicy citrus character and soft fruit. Vanilla becomes more pronounced in the mid-palate then lightly tightens its grip as a spiced edge comes through with coriander, pepper and lemon. With water it’s smooth and easy to drink. Soft and lightly sweet now, with more of the buttery fruit cake mix and a balancing hint of acidity leading towards the drier finish.
