A fifteen year-old Highlander vying for the top shelf.

If someone asks if you like Singleton Single Malt Whiskey, the correct response is, "Which one?" There are three: The Singleton of Glendullan, The Singleton of Glen Ord, and The Singleton of Dufftown. Each distillery is awesome in its own way. All are Highlanders, all are used in premium blends, all have versions of The Singleton, and each has their own Single Malt brand as well. Two are Speyside, and one — Glen Ord — is Ross-shire. Some say the distinction is all marketing spin… we disagree. We love them all, but there is something about the limestone-filtered spring water in Ross-shire. Growth has been phenomenal, and parent Diageo envisions The Singleton becoming a first tier Single Malt producer along with Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, and the Macallan.

The Singleton of Dufftown is in Speyside at the Dufftown Distillery, sitting just upstream from Mortlach and about a mile from its sister Glendullen Distillery. And that is what you get here — a true-blue Speysider with all the delicate, fruit-forward notes you want in a dram of this character. The Singleton of Dufftown 15 Year Old has been aged mostly in ex-Bourbon casks with the balance aged in Oloroso Sherry casks, earning it the nickname "Fruity Decadence" proudly displayed on the label. It is, perhaps, the perfect Single Malt entry dram.

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.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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).
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
