Singleton: A Product of History and Passion
Award-winning and loved by many whisky experts all over the world.
Have you ever wondered how Singleton started?
Last of Seven Distilleries
It first started in 1897 at the edge of the River Fiddich.
It is the last of seven distilleries founded in Dufftown, Glendullan, and was the brainchild of Aberdeen blenders by the name of William Williams and sons.
Drops of History
Before being made publicly enjoyed by us, the distillery went through tons of historic moments including being closed in 1940 due to war shortages. Thankfully, it re-opened again and pushed through lots of changes when it comes to its processes.
The Future of Whisky-Making
As the technology for making whisky and the environment evolved, the distillery adapted while maintaining its high quality. Fast forward to recent times, they now have a state-of-the-art biodiversity plant and we all get to enjoy great Singleton expressions!
If you’ve been wanting to try Singleton but can’t decide which bottle to buy, we have a few recommendations for you!
Singleton 12 Year Old
If you haven’t tried Singleton bottles, then getting the Singleton 12-year-old is the perfect way to start getting to know their complex flavors that are known all over the world.
To the nose, it is incredibly appealing with its smooth scents of polished wood and nuts in the beginning which later transform into tones of apples, dates, and brown sugar. The aroma resembles that of a licorice stick.
To the tongue, it comes across as sweet, with crunchy nuts and smooth fruity richness balanced by the sweetness of blackcurrant fruit, brown sugar, and espresso coffee.
All the nuanced flavors and aromas give a medium to a long finish with lingering delayed warmth which is drying and crisp.
Singleton 15 Year Old
Looking for something fancier?
If you’re looking for a:
– Speyside Single Malt
– Easy-to-drink classic
– Highly-awarded bottle
The Singleton 15 will give you sweet, spicy, and fruity flavors derived from its special aging in European and American oak casks.
