A 16-year-old Glendullan bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
This is Batch 3 from the distillery, bottled at 48.8% with 469 bottles in the run.
A workhorse distillery owned by Diageo, it has been seen as a single malt under the Singleton range, but rarely takes the spotlight. Young spirit is bright and grassy and it develops spices and toffee, caramel notes over time.
Nose: Grassy malt, sharp apple sweetness, aromatic oak.
Palate: Blueberry and lemon peel arrive first, followed by digestive biscuit and honey.
Finish: Citrus blossom, black pepper, more grassy malt.
From the bottlers:
"Our bottling of Glendullan single malt Scotch whisky features a scene from the Space Olympics on the label. Is this a premonition of where we will one day end up - doing hurdles on the rings of Saturn? Launching shot puts between meteors? Competing for the gold medal in skateboarding in a crater?! We can only hope. What does this all have to do with whisky? Little to nothing. Enjoy."
