THE SINGLETON The Silken Gown 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2023
Every year since 2001, Diageo has unveiled its Special Releases – a limited-edition series of highly collectable and sought-after Scotch whiskies exploring the breadth and depth of their portfolio. What makes them so exciting is Diageo’s unparalleled ability to cherry-pick anything from a lost barrel produced at a ‘ghost’ distillery to an experimental expression from a world-renowned brand. These are one-of-a-kind bottlings that are not to be missed…
For 2023, The Special Releases are inspired by crafts and cultures around the world. Titled Spirited Xchange, the highly collectible and unique collection takes us on a journey through Diageo’s world-famous portfolio with cultural collaborations for unforgettable flavours and tastes.
Exploring white wine cask finishing, Singleton’s The Silken Gown Special Release is a wonderfully smooth expression that’s finished in Chardonnay de Bourgogne French oak casks. Flavourful and delightfully unique, this enticing single malt reveals amber threads of silken toffee notes that swell with layers of lush golden fruit.
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. Established in 1838, Glen Ord is the oldest of the three distilleries in the family and the award-winning whisky produced there is known for its red and black fruits. Much of The Singleton of Glen Ord finds its way into blends like Johnnie Walker and Dewar’s, so uncovering a natural-strength Single Malt tends to be a rare and fleeting thing.
