Singleton of Glendullan Reserve House Tully

The Dramble reviews Singleton of Glendullan Reserve House Tully

Bottle Name: Singleton of Glendullan Reserve House Tully

ABV: 40%
Distillery: Glendullan
Region: Speyside

There are several distillery’s with the ‘Singleton’ moniker – Glendullan, despite its relative large size is the one which, outside of travel retail, has been largely reserved solely for the US market. Mainly utilised for blended until 2007 when the Singleton of Glendullan was created for our American cousins, the distillery is therefore not one I tend to come across outside of independent bottlers here in the UK.

House Tully’s entry into the Game of Thrones Collection introduces the distillery to a wider audience. Sadly, I can find nothing about the cask makeup of the bottling, and it’s delivered at 40% ABV.

Nose: Generic apples and toffee sit with fresh cotton sheets and stale Happy Shopper cola. Toasted bread and popcorn are joined by nutmeg, allspice and a slightly metallic minerality.

Taste: Again with apples and toffee, now joined by vanilla custard, dusty oranges and fruit tea infusions. There’s some charred bitter oak that pushes through during the development, but on the whole this is one note.

Finish: Short, with toffee, white pepper and cask char.

House Tully’s entry into the Game of Thrones Collection feels lazy. Whilst not the worst of the series, this is quite possible the most generic and boring. Straight down the line apple and toffee with little body or presence. Meh.

Score: 73/100
