Dufftown Singleton 15 Years
A classic 15 year old Speyside malt originally released for the travel retail market. Singleton of Dufftown is aged in a mix of European and American oak casks and it's sweet and spicy.
Medium bodied and pleasantly mouth coating. Slightly spicy nosefeel and drying, overall. Toffee apples. Hints of honeycomb balanced by remnants of youthful zestiness – linseed oil and scented tea. Becomes fruitier: ripe autumn fruits combined with red berry sharpness. Malt and cereal notes. Some golden syrup sweetness. Reassuringly well balanced. Adding water brings up a waxier note initially, with traces of sweet chestnut and glace angelica, and then a whiff of smoke or charred wood.
