Singleton 18 Year Old
 55.0%   |    70cl

A previously unreleased expression of lively rich fruit & spiced oak, matured in freshly charred American oak hogshead. The Singleton is renowned for the smoothness and balance of its whiskies, which match the liveliness and vigour of the leaping salmon in the fast flowing rivers of the Highlands of Scotland. The Singleton Glen Ord is particularly known for its richness and fruitiness, here enriched by a different, more intense maturation cask.

Information

Distillery: Glen Ord

Age: 18 years old

Strength: 55.0%

Region: Highlands

Appearance

Deep amber with orange lights. Good beading.

Nose

A mild nose-feel, with some prickle: lightly nose- drying. Quite hard to discern at cask strength. The subtle aroma is reminiscent of nougat, with traces of dried apple, on a zesty orange peel base. A drop of water smoothly adds creamy chocolate, and boosts the orange note. But aroma is not the main event here...

Palate

At natural strength, mouth-filling and smooth in texture. The compelling and powerful taste starts with the sweetness of caramel toffee, while an answering touch of orange peel sourness introduces a surprising, warming intensity that swells with complex spices. With water the whole effect is much sweeter and smoother: still spicy, though the latter now decides to be part of the story, not the main theme.

Finish

Long, warming and increasingly spicy, leaving the palate tingling. Lightly drying, too. With water, sweeter and smoother, leaving an aftertaste of milk chocolate.
