    Riverrun

    For the longest time the Singleton of Glendullan was only available in the States, but thanks to the Game of Thrones series we too get a taste of this. By the way… did you know that the Riverrun shots were filmed at the Gosford Castle in Northern Ireland? This castle, with its 15 bedrooms, was run as a hotel since 1983, but is up for sale since 2018 for a measly half million pounds. Anyway, I digress…

    Very floral and sweet nose. A touch candy-like. Spring blossoms, honey, vanilla, hint of mandarin and litchi. Coconut cookies. Light milk chocolate. Very soft on the spices.

    Darn, that’s too bad! The arrival is just too light. Almost watery. The taste is a continuation of the nose – very candy-like again – but somewhat more spicy. Peper and some drying wood shavings. Honey towards the end. The mandarin evolve towards bittersweet blood oranges.

    Medium long finish that offers nothing new.

    This is a bit of a one trick pony if you ask me. Nothing special.

    I took my time until I finally tasted the GOT whiskys and in the meantime you read more damning judgments. Here I have to say I'm positively surprised. He is quite pleasant to drink by the way, although he is not a complexity monster.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Fresh and light fruity, apple, slightly artificial like apple rings, vanilla, relatively sweet, a light almond note, actually quite pleasant, some spice, a hint of wood
    • Taste
      81 81
      watery mouthfeel, then creamy, sweet, fruity, ripe apple, vanilla, some light tartness, but the sweet ripe apple note dominates, some honey, also pleasant, good to drink
    • Finish
      80 80
      the aftertaste is rather short, still sweet and ripe apple, a little harsher as one would chew fruit bowl

    Easy drinkable but nothing special - at least no strange notes like with some of the other GoT bottlings

    Review GoT- Glendullan - House Tully

    Today I continue my journey - with the Glendullan, which stands for the already sunken house Tully in Riverrun-Schnellwasser - but later.

    The nose is pleasantly sweet - caramel, vanilla, a little anise - something reminiscent of licorice, with fantasy a bit of carnation - after 15 minutes, the anise becomes stronger, otherwise the air gives him nothing - but pleasant

    Taste: Pleasantly mild - The nose has light fruit and some spiciness, but very restrained - it is weaker than 40% - Likörchen. 46% would stand up to him - Volt even 50.

    Finish: mild, short, angry spoken watery (The fish feels good - quick water is appropriate here, it is quickly over and watery) - here it lacks character

    Total: Easy drinking - light, mild, pleasing, in my opinion suitable for beginners. Personally, I lack complexity and depth. He would not be worth the 40 € RRP - 10 € too expensive. All in all gracious 75/100, because just complacent
