Whisky Reviews for Glendullan 12-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.92 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A nice surpise. More assertive than I expected. Mid 1970' botteling.
    • Nose
      Malty, grassy and some fruits. Dusty and a little perfumed.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly round and sweet. Warm mouthfeel with a sharp edge (not annoying though). Some sherry notes as well.
    • Finish
      Long and firm.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    My bottle is a 94 proof, 4/5 quart (757ml), PearTree Imports, Inc, NY, NY.

    USA uses imperial unit system (ie quart) prior to January 1, 1980, so this is a 1970's bottling, with 1960's juice (most likely)

      Tropical fruits! Yeah! Not crazy fruity, but definitely not something you find in current bottlings of any distillery, to be honest. Very promising. I paid $170 in January 2020. Definite win. Dusty tin boxes and chalk and hint of bitterness.

      Very SPICY -- the pepper dances on your tongue. You can just tell it's old. Dried black tea. Tannins. There are some old metals here, but the bright fruits... tropical in fact... are a bit surprising again. The fruitiness is not constant though... quite ephemeral. Mouthfeel is thin, but this is rather delicious.
    • Finish

      A bit chalky and bitter at the end, with lingering spiciness. OBE.

      89 points for now. The nose is the best part, and it's very good. I may go 90 points soon.

      ** Sure enough, after about a year opened, the spiciness went away mostly. Solid 90 points now.

  3. Malt Hans scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Bottled earlier than 1980.
