Glendullan 18 yo (1997/2015), A.D. Rattray, 40 %

Review #229
This is cask #5061 and is bottle for a number of different Danish whisky merchants. This specific bottle is bottled for Eriksen Vinhandel. The smell is light fruity. Some light tobacco and coffee notes as well. It is watered down to 40 % so it is very mild on the nose, but not in the way that it is lacking flavor.

Some roughness in the taste. Again some tobacco mixed with dark chocolate. Some grass/hay notes as well mixed with some vanilla and the oak notes obtained from the 18 years maturing in the cask. The finish is suffering from the low ABV. It gets very watery very fast.

A fine dram, which suffers a bit too much from the low ABV in my opinion. The taste is great though and the flavors mixes well together. I will give this 83/100 (20/22/20/21).
