The Singleton of Glendullan has a rich, smooth character that is derived from the combination of spirit matured in European Sherry Oak casks and American Bourbon Oak casks. American Oak brings subtle, honeyed hints of sweet vanilla while European Oak brings lush fruit and balancing dryness. It's this blend of American Bourbon Cask and European Sherry Cask aging that provides the unique balance and character. This round, elegant and finely balanced malt comes from the heart of Speyside. Malted barley, often locally grown, is carefully selected, and pure water is drawn from the high, wooded hills above the distillery glen. We bring them together slowly to ensure the spirit's round, elegant and beautifully balanced nature. We take longer still to prepare each distillation, pausing to find the most fragrant, rich fruit flavors.
Wine EnthusiastThe nosing passes find aromas of sugar cookies, orange zest, baked pineapple, dry breakfast cereal and citrus-flavored hard candy. Entry is malty sweet, woody and toffee-like; at midpalate the flavors include walnut butter, nougat and honey. Finishes as pleasant and sweet as it began.
