The Singleton of Dufftown 17 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky special release from The Singleton of Dufftown is a 17-year-aged Speyside single malt matured entirely in American oak refill casks. This unique maturation process gives it a character that's both familiar and surprising. Expect a whisky that's smooth and creamy with the signature grassy fruitiness of Dufftown, but with added notes of spice and chocolate.

Description

The Singleton of Dufftown 17 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a special release that showcases the Speyside region’s signature style with a twist. Aged for 17 years in refill American oak hogsheads, this whisky deviates from the distillery’s usual maturation process, resulting in a complex and intriguing expression.

Maturation Magic

Refill casks, previously used for maturing other spirits, impart subtler oak influence compared to fresh casks. In this case, the American oak adds a touch of vanilla and spice, complementing, rather than overpowering, the delicate Speyside character. This results in a smoother, creamier mouthfeel compared to Dufftown’s typical malts.

Aromatic Journey

On the nose, prepare for a delightful dance of aromas. The classic Speyside grassy notes take center stage, joined by hints of orchard fruits like ripe pears and crisp apples. A surprising yet intriguing note of spice emerges, hinting at cinnamon or even a touch of ginger. 

Flavorful Symphony

The first sip delivers a burst of smooth, creamy texture, a hallmark of Speyside malts. Those familiar grassy and orchard fruit notes translate beautifully onto the palate, their sweetness balanced by the subtle introduction of milk chocolate and a touch of warming cinnamon. The influence of the American oak becomes more apparent here, adding a hint of vanilla and a touch of drying spice.

A Dram for the Discerning Palate

The Singleton of Dufftown 17 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a special treat for Speyside enthusiasts seeking a unique twist on the classic style. The American oak maturation adds a layer of complexity without overwhelming the signature Dufftown character. This whisky is a perfect choice for a contemplative evening, savored neat or perhaps with a single drop of water to unlock its full aromatic potential.
