The Singleton of Dufftown 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

£70.00

The Singleton of Dufftown 18 Year Old is like the greatest hits of the dessert menu combined with the comfort of a country pub on an autumn evening…

Rich, silky and unbelievably charming, this Scotch tastes like liquified hazelnut praline, walnut baklava, crème brûlée, sticky toffee pudding, apple tart, poire belle Hélène, almond biscotti, rhubarb crumble, cocoa-dusted truffles and red berries scattered with mint leaves, all served up next to a crackling fireplace that fills the senses with warmth and a gentle woodsmoke. Spectacular Speyside and lavish luxury, this 18 Year Old is – as the label says – just “sublimely smooth”.

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.
