Singleton of Glen Ord 12 Year Old is one of three distilleries (along with Dufftown and Glendullan) which use The Singleton brand. A fruity, well-composed Singleton that manages to be both light and smooth without compromising any depth of flavour or fullness of palate.
Bright and clear; an intense amber.
Winy top notes rapidly evolve into plummy fruits offset by zesty, oily orange peel. Then, rich caramel toffees, chocolate and malty biscuits.
Light to medium bodied, delightfully coating.
Subtly coating, with a clever balance of gentle fruit tartness and gingery, rich, sweet malt. Becoming lighter and cleaner on the palate.
A beautiful balance of lightly cleansing fruit notes and gingery toasted maltiness; a smooth texture, like good chocolate slowly melting on the tongue.
