The Singleton of Dufftown Tailfire Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This whisky is distinctly named after a variety of salmon flies used to lure the leaping salmon out of the water, while fly fishing near the River Spey. The name embodies the vibrant, essence and colorful nature of the whisky and its flavor profile.
Situated in the 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 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). Singleton of Dufftown Single Malt Scotch Whisky is crafted exclusively from malted barley, which is milled and mashed before being fermented in the distillery's wooden washbacks. Following fermentation, the Whisky is distilled twice: first through a copper pot wash still and then again through a copper pot spirit still. The Singleton brand is actually manufactured in three Scottish Whisky distilleries one of which is Dufftown. Sunray is one of the two NAS single malts released by Singleton of Dufftown in 2014. Released alongside Singleton Tailfire, the distinct names are derived from a variety of salmon flies used to lure the leaping salmon out of the water while fly fishing near the River Spey. The names embody the vibrant, essence and colorful nature of the Whiskies and their flavor profiles. The Singleton of Dufftown Tailfire is just as vibrant and enticing as its sibling. Matured primarily in European oak casks specifically selected to enhance the Whisky’s notes of juicy red berries and sweet aromas of vanilla and fresh cut grass. Just a dash of water opens the palate to a whole new world, with layers of flavor cascading to the finish. Pick up your bottle today!

Sweet strawberries, stewed plums and raspberry jam on the nose, followed by grassy and malty notes, and aromas of vanilla and toasted oak. On the palate are notes of malt and green grass, and rich flavors of fruit with a hint of spice and sweet oak. The finish is sweet with oak and creamy coconut.
