What's in a name? Singleton of Dufftown 12 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Singleton of Dufftown 12 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Malty with cereal/barley sweetness, buttery toast, wood shavings, hay and walnut.
Palate: Orange zest spiciness perks up a malty core of nuts, oak and toffee, hints of cut grass.
Finish: Oaky, rich with good length, some fruit lingers.
My wife and I bought a sampler pack which included a 5cl bottle of this. We got it just to try out for a one off new experience sort of thing. But we were seduced by this pleasant drinking 'winter warmer'. I would recommend this for those starting out on the Malt adventure. Its well rounded, tasty and nice finish. The other Malts in the sampler were strong with odd aftertastes [to us]. But we'll be returning to this one.
I had the same nice experience with this whisky. I've never tried a whisky so easy to drink and flavored. Definitely I'd recommend it for starters.
I'm at chatsworth country fair and stumpled across a stall doing free samples. the staff was all smart dressed, with the latest gadgets. But could only tell me the whisky was from dufftown in the speyside area. well i must say apart from there lack of knowledge it was a really nice drop of gods water.
Deserves more than Jim Murray's 71, I'd rate it a nice round 80.
If you see it on offer snap it up.
A very drinkable whisky. Smooth and flavoursome.
If your like me and really enjoy your malts but cannot afford the really aged stuff, then this is for you.
