A 19-year-old single malt offering from The Singleton that oozes with Speyside richness. This was matured in refill American oak casks but had a finishing period in cognac seasoned casks. Distilled in 2001 at the Glendullan Distillery, this, like the rest of Diageo’s Special Releases, is bottled at cask strength, without chill filtration or artificial colouring. A hearty 56.2% abv, this one will warm you down to your toes.
Aromas of dried figs, orange peel, apricots, dry fruitcake, vanilla-scented marzipan all arise on the nose. Oaky-dry notes combine lusciously sweet taste of ripe green apple, sweet coconut, grape spirit on the palate. The finish is lengthy and warming, sweet, and savoury.
