Dufftown Tailfire Bottling Note

Tailfire is one of two no age statement single malt Scotch whiskies released for the Singleton of Dufftown range in 2014 (the other being Sunray). In tune with the berry red label, the Tailfire is a fruit-laden expression, with a high proportion of the whisky coming from European Sherry casks.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Crisp apple, red grape, raspberry and candied orange peel all jump out. A grassy green note and Wensleydale & Cranberry maintain balance whilst a touch of tobacco develops over time.

Palate: Raspberry bush, more Wensleydale. Oats, vanilla and a hint of pepper.

Finish: Drying and hot rod with lip smacking fruitiness.

Overall: A vibrant, berried Singleton with enough depth to keep you interested.

Singleton of Dufftown Tailfire Reviews

Soo sweet

5star definitely. Apple, raspberry, cranberry, banana and cream cakes develop. Take a deeper sniff and lemongrass and spice appear. Palate fruity with some wood, light damp wood, gooseberry is there. A weaker finish but sweeteners remains well

Bonfire perfect

Good oaky nose, autumnal breeze a crisp leaf quality with fruity overtones; not uninteresting.

Enjoyable whisky with a somewhat boring character

An enjoyable whisky with a somewhat boring character. The sherry finish isn't really evident, contributing very gently to the aroma and adding very little to the flavour.

Different, easy, lacking

Got a bottle for Christmas. Poured a glass, and smelling it its beautiful fruitiness is really up front, which is great. Then I taste it. I wouldn't say one dimensional, but two - the 1st being white chocolate and raspberry cookie from Morrison's; the 2nd being young, unrefined spirit. The two seem to balance each other out adequately, but the residual feeling is that you've been somewhat short changed. It's not terrible, but won't be buying any more.

Good

If you like sherry malts - it will work for you.
Good value for money .

Tastes artificial

One of the worst single malts I've ever had the misfortune to purchase. Tastes like an artificial raspberry flavouring. Ridiculously sweet and one-dimensional. No finish at all. This is a whisky for people who don't like whisky. Avoid!

Just cracked a bottle from Christmas. Very impressed. Mild, fruity and with a pleasant after taste. Surprised no age statement though.

An excellent addition to the singleton range. A great one to introduce to new whisky drinkers
Smooth easy on the palate great value
Would willingly keep a couple of bottles in my cupboard.

Fruity, touch of spice.

A very smooth whisky, that has a fruity, spicy texture, but doesn't linger on the palate like most whiskies which is a shame because it is a nice whisky, but does get a tad boring.

It's a nice, easy drinking dram that you can share with those who are not hardcore whisky lovers. But look for it in the major stores on deal, it's often priced at £25 which is bloody great value!

Absolutely loved it really nice after taste

23rd May 2015

Ok, but more of a novelty than a decent whisky.

Smooth, sweet, fruity. But past that, there's not much else to it. 6/10.

Would be disappointed if i'd paid £36, thankfully now living in Taiwan I picked it up for £16 at the supermarket...

Strange name for a great whisky

quite smooth, found it very easy to drink. lots of dried fruit on the nose and in the finish. I found it especially curranty in an altogether pleasing not at all overpowering way. highly recommend.

1st February 2015

i am interested

trying the speycascade version, its got a lovely floral fruity nose, will defo buy the other 2 taste versions. its good to taste a bit of experimentation.

A more unstable Singleton

I've been used to the 12 yo Singleton. Probably the most beatiful, well balanced single malt a small wallet can buy. In front of me stands the bottle of Tailfire. "Vibrant, fruity, fresh", is what the label promises me. The dram rolls elegantly through my glass. It's clear coppery color appeals to me. My nose picks up lots of fruity impressions, most of them dried fruit such as raisins, but also sweet apples. In my mouth, the strong and persuasive taste reveals more fruit, but it's rather unreffined. Very unlike Singleton. To finish it off, the dram tends to get a bit bitter and dry while rounding off. I must say this whisky is pretty good, but for less money, I'd take the 12 yo anyday. (RB)

A tad blunt

Initially you do get the red fruit nose and little touches of spices such as nutmeg here and there but the palate is what lets this dram down. Quite one dimensional

Great! (little pricey here?)

Bought one in a local super market for €28.
Absolutely amazing for that price!
