My first Glendullan! Glendullan is another noble unknown, that produces primarily for the blending industry. Around 90% goes into Diageo blends. There are hardly any official releases. So if you want to taste Glendullan as a single malt, you will need to turn to the independent bottlers. This one was bottled by Gordon & Macphail in their Connoisseurs Choice series.

The nose is very light on vanilla and green banana. A touch of pineapple and maybe a hint of peach, but that is already stretching it. Very light. Too light to be entertaining.

It is a little better on the palate, although still very much like an eau-de-vie. Fresh and fruity, sure, but with a very meager body. Vanilla and banana remain in the lead. Banana split? Hints of eggnog. A bit of ginger, a bit of cinnamon.

The finish is medium long, which is surprisingly long for such a lightweight.

Flawless, sure, but far from interesting. Typical material for blenders, I suppose. Around 45 EUR.
