Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

The Singleton of Glen Ord, 40 Year Old, 1982

For the The Singleton 40-year-old grand finale, the deeply decadent malt began as a flavoursome 12 year old whisky, which Maureen Robinson transferred to a series of rum casks to double mature for nearly three decades. The Singleton 40yo, pushing boundaries of taste with an astonishingly-bold & pioneering 28 years secondary maturation experiment. To enhance the base notes of luscious dark chocolate and sun ripened fruit, Maureen married these whiskies in precious Solera casks of Zacapa XO and Royal Rum, for a luxuriously smooth expression – delicate, sweet, exotic andoutstandingly smooth. Our 40yo represents the culmination of that journey, and the ultimate expression of that belief. A maximalist in time, craft and flavour.

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.
