Glendullan 13, 2001, 56.2% – SMWS (84.17, Fluffernutter)

Who in the world can think of a thing like ‘Fluffernutter’ and NOT think of things with a PG rating? Fluffernutter? Really?

Anyway, this Glendullan, a whisky you don’t come across often, was bottled quite a while ago by the SMWS at 13 years old. It was drawn from a Refill Bourbon cask at 56.2%

Honestly, with what I know of Glendullan, we’re in for a bit of a bore. It’s just one of those distilleries that is producing whiskies for blending, and only occassionally has a single cask come out. Not entirely surprising, since it does generally come of as a bit of a blank canvas. Maybe this one is different?

Sniff:
Rather spirity, green and fresh. A whiff of oak, vanilla, and some minerals. Iron, green apple, slate.

Sip:
Quite some alcohol, chili heat and freshness. Again, quite green and spirity in a good way. Light, slightly dry and some foresty, moss like flavors.

Swallow:
Still somewhat sharp and hot, with green apples, moss and ferns. Short on the burn down though.

Right. Spirity in a good way, meaning it’s not only vanilla and some fruits from the cask. It does prove the rule of it being a blank canvas, because after tasting this and getting a bit of a feel for the distillery, it’s just not very rememberable.

There’s not much to say I guess. It’s not bad, but it’s not a whisky you want to go back to.

79/100
