Singleton of Glendullan Bottling Note

2014 marks the first time the Singleton of Glendullan has been released as part of Diageo's Special Release. Exciting stuff, especially considering this is a 38 year old single malt, matured in re-fill European oak casks, bottled at an impressive 59.8% ABV. 3,756 bottles were produced.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Vanilla toffee oak, geranium, grasses, some white pepper and fresh vanilla. (The aforementioned Toby was upset I didn't initially include his note of the night here: pencil shavings akin to a demerara rum.)

Palate: Warming up front before relaxing entirely with waxy, gentle oak notes, a touch of melon and some venerable wood spices.

Finish: Salivating oakiness.

Overall: A nice old chap of a whisky, it's aged oak note-driven and it's done very well.

Singleton of Glendullan 38 Year Old 1976 (2014 Special Release) Reviews

Strong, with a very long finish

I am not a Scotch expert. I am a normal gentleman that has tried several Single Malt Whiskeys in restaurants, and wants to learn more. To do that I recently purchased 10 samples. At least one was from each region of Scotland. I had no regard for price. The goal was to try some very fine Whiskeys. I wanted to learn. This review is based on that. I am giving each sample 5 stars simply because they are all fine whiskeys and my pallet is not refined enough to make a 1-5 judgement.

To me this was Very strong. Then I noticed that it is almost 60% so now I understand. Drinking this strength of Whiskey requires you to take into account the strength. I found it to be Very flavorful, with a very long finish. The taste was great but almost overpowering. Very smooth considering it's strength.
