An exceptionally old and lavishly flamboyant Singleton.

A treasure chest of history, elegance, and old-time flair.Nestled in the heart of the Scotch Whisky capital, Dufftown distillery has been creating sweet and fruity malt classics that have helped make Speyside one of the most famous Whisky-producing regions in the world. Dufftown distillery alone is currently producing a whopping 6 million liters of Whisky Spirit every year and it shows no signs of slowing down. As the third biggest distillery owned by Diageo, Dufftown will be continuing its role as a trendsetter within the Scotch industry for many years to come.

Especially with releases like the following one. The Singleton 54 YO Single Malt is an exceptionally limited-release Scotch Whisky from a by-gone era. A 1966 vintage means, the European oak cask it rested in was laid down by the old distillers over half a century ago and that makes it the closest to the end of the old slow-craft period that they have ever released. On that note, this Singleton is actually their oldest Single Malt release, and it's the second and final bottling in its Paragon of Time Collection. There's history in every drop here. To unveil a new layer of the exceptional flavor, this Methuselah of a Whisky was additionally finished in a single Pedro Ximenez-seasoned cask.

Available in exceptionally limited quantities of just 235 bottles, the rich, complex, and mellow Single Malt is housed in a bespoke, leather-lined wooden cabinet. The 54 layered ridged setting of the decanter display is inspired by the Scottish mountain landscape, amid wood mirroring the 54 years of maturation. The decanter, a masterpiece in crystal, was hand-made by Baccarat in France to The Singleton silhouette, with the intricate copper detail around the neck being crafted by Royal Warrant Holders, Thomas Fattorini.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
