Singleton of Glen Ord, 39 Year Old, 1982

1982

Tasting Notes


ABV:
46.2 %

Notes

Red-hued amber in colour, the nose it is mellow and the aroma profoundly complex. Mild at first , and vinous, with fruity top notes suggesting a rich fruit cake with wine-soaked raisins, candied orange peel and toasted almonds. Medium to full bodied, on the palate it is light yet creamy-smooth; a very slightly waxy texture and mouth-watering, sweet start with a notably fruit clove-studded spiciness, succulent blackberries and muscovado crumble. The finish is very long, fruity, and warming, with a lingering spicy warmth and a hint of salted plums in the aftertaste. The latter is increased by a drop of water, when the whole aftertaste becomes unusually menthol-cool.

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.
