The Singleton

2022 Edition - The Singleton 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70cl Giftpack with 2 Glasses

The Singleton of Dufftown is distilled in the Dufftown distillery of Speyside, one of the largest in Scotland, where fine single malts have been produced since 1896. The unmistakable taste of The Singleton comes from a unique selection of European Oak casks that bring rich fruit aromas and American Oak casks that release honeyed hints of vanilla.

This gift pack includes a Singleton 12YO 70cl with its stunning new branding alongside two glasses, perfect for sharing a dram with friends.

Appearance

Rich amber, polished mahogany highlights.

Body

Medium to full-bodied.

Nose

Approachable and rich. First polished wood and nuts (toasted hazelnut) dominate, then stewed fruits (baked apples), dried fruits (sweet dates), and soft brown sugar take over. Mossy too, after a while. With water, a sweeter, more direct Speyside character develops (pure pear drops!). Clean and dense. After a while, warm, dry, aromas, of pencil shavings or match-sticks.

Palate

Sweetness and crunchy nuts impress at first, then there’s a smooth, fruity Speyside richness to enjoy. Firm, with a balancing sweetness. Brown sugar and espresso coffee. Warming and pleasant. With water, still a pleasant texture. Light sweetness, then chewy and balanced by light acidity, with a good spread of flavours mid-palate.

Finish

Medium to long, elegantly drying and crisp, completed by a pleasant, sweetly nutty chew-ability.
