Whisky Reviews for The Singleton of Dufftown Malt Master's Selection

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.36 points

  1. Macheye scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The Singleton Malt Master’s Selection is a sweet, unfussy, easy-going uncomplicated whisky. But, whilst the finish is all too brief and a touch hollow in places, the rest of the components all gel together quite nicely. There are elements of youth here (as one might expect), but they are largely covered through some the influence of ex-sherry sweetness. The price vs. quality seems extremely reasonable - both as a potential introductory whisky, but also as a bottling that you’d not be overly worried to mix up and experiment with. Perhaps not a master, but certainly a well-behaved pupil.https://www.thedramble.com/tastings/dufftown/the-singleton-of-dufftown-malt-masters-selection/
    • Nose
      Immediately sweet with orchard fruits – ripe apples and pears – and also with confectionary – toffee, caramel, honeycomb and pear drops. There’s both grassiness (fresh hay and leaves) and patisserie (almond buns and bread and butter pudding). In the background there’s very light pepperiness, which provides just a touch of bitterness and offsets some of the sweeter aromas.
    • Taste
      Slightly syrupy with a texture akin to tinned fruit salad, this opens similarly to the nose with toffee, and orchard fruits – now a little deeper – toffee apples, and poached pears. There’s a touch of metal here – copper, which hints at some youthful spirit. Bakery flavours again – croissants and vanilla swirls. Maltiness comes through in the mid-palate – at times seeming a slightly sharp, bitter and citrus (combined with our bready/bakery flavours, almost akin to a citra-hop IPA). In the back-palate, grassiness and earthiness is present – reed, flax and some slightly damp soils. Spicing is more prevalent here than on the nose, but is not overwrought – slightly bitter pepper.
    • Finish
      Relatively short with vanilla, grassiness and pepper.

  2. holborndrinker scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A pleasant dram - decent value.
    • Nose
      Freshly pressed shirts and apple strudel.
    • Taste
      Mellow fruitfulness, some grassy notes with a slightly sweet aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Soft, sweet - quite short.
