Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Dark amber. 
 
Smell / Nose / Aroma
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. 
 
Flavour / 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.
 
Comment
The Singleton of Dufftown is very well balanced and will appeal to first timers and veterans alike. Not connected to Duffman though.

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 flavour is achieved through longer fermentation and slower distillation.

Had a dram in Inverness. Really enjoyed it. Full and rich. Drank with just a little dab of water.
Gregory
Wow bury next to this distilery!!
Armando
A bit of burnt sugar on the nose. Quick finish but a smooth sip.
Zbigniew
The nose detects a sweet smoke, the eyes see a beautiful ember color. Now let's see what the taste pallet senses. Beautiful sweet start with a nice berry finish. Defenitly a whisky you can sip on at any time of thr year.
Aaron
Very smooth finish, loved to sip this by the fire on a cold winter evening!!
Rick
Not a fan of the front end sort of a buttery taste, but smooth.
Peter
Bright toffee, peppery bite, sharp, apricot. Very middle of the road and easy drinking.
Jarrod
