Singleton of Dufftown 12 YO pours a deep gold with polished mahogany highlights. It has aromas of toasted nut along with rich fruit. Adding a dash of water to it brings out the classic Speyside fruit-sweet aromas. There is a sweetness and crunchy nut notes on the palate, then a smooth, fruity richness, balancing with hints of blackcurrant, brown sugar, and espresso coffee. The finish is medium to long, elegantly drying and crisp with a delayed lingering warmth.The Singleton of Dufftown 12 YO is a re-launched Singleton to replace the now-defunct Singleton of Auchroisk. This smooth, mellow dram is designed to attract new drinkers to the malt category.
