It’s finally here: the longest double maturation from The Singleton. 

If someone asks if you like Singleton Single Malt Whisky, 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.

The Singleton 39 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a rare vintage that began its journey as a 12YO Singelton malt Whisky 27 years ago. It was then that Master Distiller Maureen Robinson who has been with Diageo for more than 40 years put the precious liquid in hand-selected European oak casks that used to house Port Wine, Red Wine, and a blend of PX and Oloroso Wines. Then, more than a quarter of a century later, Robinson married the casks in ex-French Bordeaux casks. This makes this incredible bottling 39 years old!

This complex and indulgent concoction marries Robinson’s impressive work in Scotland with her travels in French wineries. What does a dram of this age, bottled at cask strength, taste like? Think sumptuous crumbled muscovado sugar and rich and succulent blackberries shining through lavish Whisky flavors. Only 1,695 bottles released in the world.

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.
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).
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.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
