The Singleton of Glen Ord ’12 Years Old ‘Single Malt Scotch Whisky
A fruity, well-composed Singleton with flavours of preserved plum and ginger that’s perfectly balanced for everyday drinking. Contrives to be both light and smooth without compromising any depth of flavour or fullness of palate, on which there’s a good balance of cleansing fruit acidity and creamy rich toffee. Immediate, smooth, and cooling palate, subtly coating, with a clever balance of gentle fruit tartness (preserved plums) and gingery, rich, sweet malt.
Becoming gradually lighter and cleaner on the palate with faint, appetizing late notes of toasted coconut. Medium in length and very, very rounded. A beautiful balance of lightly cleansing fruit notes and gingery toasted maltiness; a smooth texture, like caramel toffees or good chocolate slowly melting on the tongue. Late notes of cocoa and cool mint.
About The Brand
The Singleton Brand is actually a threesome of single malts each with a growing family of expressions around a core 12-year-old. First was Singleton of Glen Ord, Diageo’s ‘green grassy’ malt from the Highlands which was reserved for Asia. Then came two Speysiders – The Singleton of Glendullan (fruity, grassy) for the US and Canada, and The Singleton of Dufftown (nutty, spicy), which was kept just for Europe. Today all three are available globally.
