The Singleton of Dufftown 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
More age has brought out the fruitiness in the Singleton of Dufftown. The 15 Year Old is vibrantly fruity with a texture that slips smoothly down like golden syrup.
Like all in the range, this is a fabulously approachable dram for those new to whisky, but while we love the 12 Year Old in cocktails, we much prefer the 15 Year Old neat or on the rocks. Liquid toffee apples, fruit salad, pear, fig, red berries, Crunchie bars, high dried fruit content granola, oat and raisin cookies, subtle gingery spices and wildflower honey; it’s one of those drams for all seasons. A seasoned Speyside or polished perfection, this 15 Year Old is – as the label says – the epitome of “fruity decadence”.
The Singleton brand is actually a trio of single malts; Dufftown and Glendullan from Speyside and the grassy and fruity Glen Ord from the Black Isle to the west, the latter being famed for its golden barley and pure water. Diageo launched this super-smooth brand in 2006 in a bid to rival the likes of Glenlivet and Glenfiddich, and eventually become the world’s number one selling malt. This particular Scotch is a Singleton of Dufftown. As well as being a town, Dufftown gives its name to the surrounding area of Speyside, home to the likes of Balvenie, Glenfiddich, Mortlach, Glendullan, Kininvie and Pittyvaich. This is one of the highest concentrations of whisky distilleries anywhere in the world. The Dufftown distillery that bears the town’s name was originally a mill that was converted in the 1890s. In recent decades it has become one of Diageo’s powerhouse producers and is a vital component in Bell’s blended Scotch. Now, Dufftown has been given its chance to shine as the driving force behind Singleton. Water is drawn from Jock’s Well in the Conval Hills, and the distillery’s distinctive pear-shaped stills create rich whisky that’s unbelievably smooth, nutty and heavy on the malt.
