    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Singleton of Glen Ord, 39 Year Old, 1982

    The Singleton's most indulgent whisky. At 39 years old, this whisky is approaching four decades in the making and only 1,695 bottles have been released of this extra-long double maturation whisky, in a combination of European oak casks that had previously held Port, red wine, Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry, which were later married in casks that previously held Bordeaux red wine casks. Emerging from the oak after a 39-year quest to epitomise the intensity and lavishness of exquisite European wines through whisky flavour, is a Single Malt Scotch unlike any that has come before it. Rich and succulent blackberries burst onto the palate, while a sumptuous whisper of crumbled muscovado sugar leaves the taste buds tantalised. The result, a rare vintage resounding with depth and complexity for an unparalleled taste experience.

    The Singleton

    Bringing pleasure from the first sip, and with bottlings from three distinct distilleries, The Singleton range brings together a striking family of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies that everyone can enjoy.

    The Singleton of Glen Ord is the oldest of The Singleton distilleries and the only Highlander in the family, Glen Ord is the product of the White Burn’s water and the Black Isle’s barley. The products of which are a fruity, complex collection that covers all occasions, from aperitif to night-long contemplation.

    The Singleton of Glendullan is a Speysider and the youngest by a mere year. It brings a light, delicate, greenwood flavour to the family of three. This is the gift of the American oak casks, the insides of which the liquid caresses to yield a whisky with the subtle softness of fresh orchard fruits. Glendullan runs a true range of flavours, from the instantly likeable 12 Year Old to the incredibly rich Double Matured.

    Last, but by no means least, The Singleton of Dufftown is perhaps the most well known of the trio. Found in the heart of Speyside, The Singleton of Dufftown was built during the reign of Queen Victoria. And though the traditional methods, centuries of craft and ancient water source remain, Dufftown – the smoothest of the family of three – is on a mission to create new, great tasting Single Malt Scotch Whiskies that burst with flavour. This enticing collection of fruit, vanilla and honey flavours is like a symphony composed on oak wood.
