Singleton of Glendullan 14 Year Old Special Release 2023 The Silken Gown

Part of the Special Releases 2023 ‘Spirited Xchange’ from Diageo, this is the Singleton of Glendullan 14 Year Old Single Malt called ‘The Silken Gown’. The Singleton of Glendullan is of smooth and sensorial elegance layered to perfection. This release was curated with the care of the most famous of French fashion houses, enrapturing with silken, amber character and luscious, bountiful flavour. Finished in rich Chardonnay de Bourgogne French Oak casks, it radiates a rich and magnetic character. It was bottled at cask strength.

    Nose:    A mild nose-feel, clean and crisp. The light top notes are green and fruity, suggesting fresh-cut green apple, white grapes and a hint of pear, all combined in a juicy fruit salad and supported after a while by a golden, butter-smooth suggestion of crème anglaise on a puff-pastry base. There’s a note of spun honey in the development.

    Taste:    At natural strength, smooth in feel, with light, velvet-smooth layers of texture and a taste that is toffee-sweet to start, balanced by a splash of golden yellow fruit acidity and light spiciness. Overall, crisp and clear yet also richly rounded.

    Finish:    Of medium length, finishing spicy, with a lovely smoothness.
