What I say
An independently bottled Dufftown expression (better known as The Singleton of Dufftown from its parent Diageo) to celebrate the historic bicentenary of the town Dufftown itself. Bottled by Morrison & Mackay for The Whiskyshop Dufftown.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Pale straw gold (3/20), medium tears and legs.
- Nose: Sweet honey and barley cereals, grist, flour, barley sugars, fruity apple, citrus, lemon, kiwi, sponge cake, vanilla, plenty of golden syrup sweetness, quite rich and honeyed on the nose.
- Taste: More biscuit and cereal than the nose suggests, mealy, mouth coating, sponge cake with a hint of zesty lemon and white pepper or lemon drizzle icing, buttercream, appel and pear fruits, lemon meringue and key lime pies with shortbread biscuit base.
- Finish: medium-long, cereal, fruit and honey persist with dry oak wood.
Pleasant and solid, cloyingly rich nose but a more reserved palate full of cereal notes a touch of zest and spice keep it interesting.
Don’t take my word for it:
