Dufftown distillery was started in 1896 by two Liverpudlian entrepreneurs when a stone built saw and a mill was converted into a distillery. By the 1920s the distillery was doing great and had an expanding market in the US, however prohibition hit it badly and it was closed in 1933. In 1934 Arthur Bell bought the distillery, and it has been an important contributor to Bells blend ever since. The Dufftown distillery is the only one in Scotland malting all its own barley.
 
The Singleton of Dufftown 15 Year Old is aged for 15 years in American and European casks, which were used for ageing bourbon and sherry, respectively. The depth and richness of its flavor is achieved through longer fermentation and slower distillation.

Appearance / Color
Dark Amber
 
Nose / Aroma / Smell
Slightly spicy nose, toffee apples, ripe autumn fruits combined with red berry sharpness. Some golden syrup sweetness and an interesting yeasty note. Adding water brings up sweet chestnut and a whiff of smoke. 
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Sweet then slowly drying. Fresh fruit with spicy top notes. Rich on the palate with that nuttiness and vanilla, dried fruits and the yeast from the nose has become more biscuit like. 
 
Finish
Dry departure. Pears and whole grain biscuits, then delicately spiced with notes of cinnamon and a breath of anise seed.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Like Deanston, Dufftown was not built to be a distillery. It was a grain mill that they converted into a distillery, when the milling business was slow.
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.
