The Singleton of Dufftown 17 Year Old 2020 Special Release
About The Singleton of Dufftown 17 Year Old 2020 Special ReleaseThe Singleton brand is actually manufactured in three Scottish Whisky distilleries, one of which is Dufftown. Situated in the iconic Speyside region of Scotland, the Dufftown Distillery was founded in 1895 by four wine merchants who together purchased a stone built saw and meal mill and converted it into a distillery. Located near the confluence of the Rivers Dullan and Fiddich, the distillery draws its water from Jock's Well, which is renown for its incredibly pure and flavorful spring water (on more than one occasion, nearby distilleries — particularly Mortlach — have been caught attempting to divert water from the well to their own distillery).
Part of the Diageo's 2020 Special Release, Singleton of Dufftown 17YO is one of eight single malt Scotch whiskies in the collection. A creamy single malt and the first ever Singleton of Dufftown to be matured exclusively in refill American oak, ex-bourbon hogsheads, it was crafted by master blender Dr. Craig Wilson, respecting the year's theme "Rare by Nature". Bottled at natural cask strength of 55.1% ABV and made from 100% malted barley, this special release is a lush spring expression with sweet and grassy notes that’s at the same time spicy, but elegant. Its extremely creamy texture and sweet palate ends with soft oak spices and herbal notes. An excellent, classic malt whisky, available in very limited quantities.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
