The Singleton 12y Dufftown Single Malt Scotch Whisky. A rogue’s smile and an upgraded ticket got me into the Air Canada lounge in Winnipeg (mostly the ticket), where I found this relic of a grandfather’s attic. Hung upside down in an airport lounge for who knows how long, it’s also been breathing for about 10 minutes while I negotiate two terrible wifi networks and avoid using LTE until the 10th. Odd to find something I haven’t tasted before offered up for free; who am I to turn down free liquor? That would be downright irresponsible.
nose – mild oak, slight citrus, a little soap
neat – orange pop, a lot of noise. orange liquor,
finish – cheap burn becomes chest warmth, not unpleasant
splash – simpler, more tongue numbing and sharp. less good
overall – interesting but eh 7/10
The Singleton 12y Dufftown Single Malt Scotch Whisky – 40% 750ml – $56.20 – Speyside
Try it? Eh. But it? Meh.
