House Tully’s ancestral keep, Riverrun, spans the junction of the Red Fork of the Trident and the Tumblestone River. Ruling as Lord of the Riverlands, under the house sigil of a silver trout flashing above rushing water, House Tully embodies the surge of the river waters that never cease moving, they formed powerful alliances and fight against the current for family, duty and honour.
Situated on the banks of the River Fiddich in the wooded hills of Dufftown, Glendullan originally relied on the waters that surrounded it. Harnessing the force of the waters that flowed through the land, it utilized a water wheel to power the entire distillery. Best served with a splash of water, this Scotch has notes of green apple, honey and sweet vanilla and finishes dry and clean.
Aged in ex-bourbon casks, this single malt has a light straw shimmer and a heady opening of Madagascan vanilla on the nose, followed by hints of clove spice. On the palate the initial drive is fresh green apples, then the clove flavour from the nose is there, but accompanied by warm cinnamon notes. The finish slips into a red berry flavour with vanilla and a hint of cherry bakewell.
Nose: The light straw shimmer of this liquid hints at the cast lineage of this single malt that is 100% ex-Bourbon casks; that’s confirmed by the heavy Madagascar vanilla opening on the nose followed by a suggestion of sweet, clove spice that develops over time.
Palate: On the palate it’s initially driven by orchard fruits like apple; the clove returns but now with cinnamon as the palate develops.
Finish: The finish moves away from citrus into a red berry compote with vanilla cheesecake and a pronounced cereal spice finish.
