  • Singleton Malt Master's Selection The Singleton of Dufftown Malt Master’s Selection (40%, OB, 2018) - The Singleton of Dufftown Malt Master’s Selection Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review: A very mealy and really rather good expression from Dufftown, I have to admit to being partial to the 12yo which is an easy drinker for me. Perhaps it is more spirit character here, but I found myself liking this expression better with a view to re-acquainting myself with the 12yo again for comparison. I'm not usually a big fan of spice but this has just the right addition to liven up a thick, sweet and rich expression. 84/100
