Advent Number Four! Dufftown, home of Duff Breweries, offers a 10y whisky. I’ve never had a Dufftown before because I didn’t think it was real. It sounds like a fake whisky from a cartoon.
What is Dufftown? It’s Singleton of Dufftown, aka Singleton, apparently. I last encountered this whisky hanging upside down in an airport lounge. The bottle, not me. Marketed in different places under different names, we at least landed on a similar number for an overall score. Here’s what we thought:
Dan – honey dew melon, sea water
Simon – aftershave, mild
Dan – very spicy
Simon – mint, pepper, pop
Dan – tongue died
Simon – very little, slight warmth
Dan – bright, melons, cloves
Simon – bitter fruits, less good
Dan – 7.5/10
Simon – 7.1/10
Dufftown 10y Batch 4 – 47.8% 30ml – ??? – Speyside
Try it? Sure. Buy it? No.
