A big fish in a big pond.

With producers such as Glenfiddich and Balvenie calling the town home, Dufftown is often described as the capital of Scotch Whisky. Too often though we forget that Dufftown is the name of a distillery in its own right. 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. By no means however is this the case of a small fish in a big pond. Dufftown is the third biggest distillery owned by Diageo and a large volume of their malts contribute to popular Whisky blends such as Johnnie Walker.

Luckily the Singleton branding has allowed the single malt expressions of Dufftown to survive and we have managed to get our hands on some exclusive single malt varieties from the distillery. This 18 year-old has built on the success of its younger 12 and 15 year-old counterparts to create a malty Speyside classic packed with juicy fruit and a spicy finish. Given the history of the distillery this is a very reasonably priced dram and one of the oldest Dufftown expressions you can easily get your hands on. You don’t need to be a mathematician to know that a Scotch using a 50/50 mixture of European and American oak will be extremely well-balanced so put down your calculator and join us for a dram of a Dufftown classic

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
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.
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).
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.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
