This unusual first-ever exclusively refill cask release of The Singleton Dufftown has been matured for seventeen years in refill American oak hogsheads, to showcase the fresh, spring-like nature of this slowly crafted single malt.
The mellow aromas mark this as a classic Speyside malt, with a first sweet impression of honeycomb and beneath, a floral note of dry grasses with hints of fruit on an earthy base.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Mellow and mild overall, with hardly any prickle. The first impression is of honeycomb; spun honey, but also a trace of beeswax. Beneath this is a faint floral note of dry grasses or wallflowers, with fresh orchard fruits on an earthy base.
Flavour Profile: Palate
At natural strength the texture is creamy- smooth, the taste intense and sweet overall, and both drying and slightly coating as that hint of beeswax re-appears.
Flavour Profile: Finish
Quite long and warming with white pepper, becoming chili in the aftertaste. Lightly drying, it leaves the palate tingling.
