Singleton of Glendullan 14 year

This was a bottling from Diageo’s special 2023 bottling release:

55% ABV


Glendullan distillery in Speyside is under the ownership of Diageo and their spirits are mainly used for blends.

Singleton series has Single Malt releases of 12, 15 and 18 year.

Also dubbed the Silken Gown, This 14 year is a 2023 special release by Diageo bottled at Natural cask strength.

Cask Type: Chardonnay de Bourgogne French Oak Finish.

Nose: Some grass, apples, honey, apricots

Palate: The mouthfeel here is a surprisingly dense. At full bore it is drinkable, though it does feel like it needs some loosening up. Apricots and gummy peach rings are the major notes that come to mind. There is also something a bit earthy and dark, almost as if it is lurking behind the brighter fruit notes. Adding water and the mouthfeel transitions to being more milky than dense. The apricot and gummy peach ring notes really take the reins here and are very dominant.

Finish: Medium to long in length. A bit of oak spice, some more of those gummy peach rings, and mineral water wrap things up.
