Singleton of Glendullan 19 year old (Diageo Special Releases 2021), 54.6%

Price: $175 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This delicate creature, finished in cognac-seasoned casks, has approachable fruitiness with aromas of pear, kumquat, grapefruit peel, biter orange, and soft fresh apricots with vanilla buttercream. Bright lemon sherbet flavors meet vanilla and shortbread, as spices ricochet off the gums, first pepper, then ginger. It reverts to orange, creamy vanilla, and lemon frangipane, then yields to a dry finish of spiced toffee and malt.
