Other reviews... 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. 89 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Jonny McCormick 2021

...This one from refill American oak, with a Cognac finish on top of it. Let's see if the Cognac did offset a part of Glendullan's proverbial grassiness (proverbial in my own book, at least). Colour: straw. Nose: raisins and peaches on top of sunflower and peanut oils, on top of stewed apples, on top of walnut cake and a pack of dried figs. Wee whiffs of ale, or rather gueuze. With water: a pack of lemon drops and perhaps even some Jell-O. Barbecued marshmallows and sweet maize, also sultanas with a little curry and turmeric from the wood (I suppose). Mouth (neat): rather tight, a little eau-de-vie-ish at first (kirschwasser), getting then wider and rounder, with a few raisins and once again those juicy peaches. Rather preserved peaches, actually. With water: more spices, turmeric indeed, paprika, ginger, raisins. Tends to play hide-and-seek with the cognac, a good feeling. Finish: medium, sweet and soft. Really feels 'smartly enhanced' and yet 'natural'. Comments: very smart work here, in my humble opinion. 86 points - whiskyfun.com
