Singleton is a single malt brand. As you know, in order for a whiskey to be called single malt, it must have been produced in a single distillery. There is an exceptional situation here for this brand…

Singleton has expressions produced in 3 different distillates in its portfolio. These; Dufftown, Glen Ord and Glendullan. Although the whiskeys produced in these distillery are offered under the Singleton brand, they take their places on the shelves with a slight change in their names: Singleton of Glen Ord, Singleton of Glendullan and Singleton of Dufftown.

On this tasting note, Speyside I will talk about the 12-year expression of Singleton produced at the Dufftown distillery located in the region.

Singleton of Dufftown 12 (Scottish Single Malt, 40% abv)

Nose: Pretty fruity, sweet nose. Green apples, pears, honey and oak are in the foreground. In addition to these, vanilla, brown sugar and lemon. Although not very strong, herbaceous and grassy notes make themselves felt.

Palate: As on the nose, fruity aromas are dominant on the palate. Oak and caramel in addition to green apples and oranges. Unlike the nose, slightly spicy warm notes are also felt on the palate. Soft, slightly creamy and easy to drink.

Finish: Medium length. Vanilla, oak and light spice.

Comment: Singleton of Dufftown 12 has a special place for me because it was one of the first single malts I drank. Expression, which reflects the Speyside character quite well, is a malt whiskey that I find very successful in terms of price-performance. An introductory malt to malt whiskey with its soft drink and balanced character.
