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.
