- Cheap for a 15YO, but I feel you get more for even less with the 12YO.
Quite spirity and spicy.
Red sour berries.
Some wood and something reminding me of dried out liqorice.
Initially not much really.
Very light, a bit flat and one dimentional.
Some spice develop, and then some sour wood notes.
Caramel, generic caramel.
This is close to short.
Lightly drying, slightly bitter.
slightly spicy sweet, fruity, mint oak
creamy, soft, spicy
First impression: peach punch. After some time in the glass, the aroma changes into a Swabian full beer. A very interesting and nice nose. Second impression: Ripe summer fruits, some acidity (well integrated), a light and well-rounded spice mixture and toffee.
Beautiful and full body with mirabelles, peaches, acid, malt, mild spices and some wood. Blind tasted I would, if you ignore the ABV, typed on a Swabian beer.
Medium long, fruity finish, getting dry.
- Distillery Notes:
Nose: Slightly spicy, toffee apples, ripe autumn fruits combined with red berry sharpness. Some golden syrup sweetness and a yeasty note.
Taste: Sweet then slowly drying. Fresh fruit with spicy top notes. Rich on the palate with that nuttiness and vanilla, dried fruits and the yeast from the nose has become more biscuit like.
Finish: Dry departure. Pears and whole grain biscuits, then delicately spiced with notes of cinnamon and a breath of anise seed.
Comment: The Singleton of Dufftown is very well balanced and will appeal to first timers and veterans alike.
- Overall a lovely round malt. It's not very impressive but a good drink for a fair price.
Lovely orange notes with some pepper and wood. In the background some turpentine.
Spicy, with lots of pepper and salt. The background consists out of wood, red berries and some notes of iron.
Pleasantly warm and round. It evolves after some time, but overall a bit too short.
- N: cucumber with pepper, creamy, red fruits, citrus and medium spicy
T: dusty, iron, sour, wood and chestnut
F: dry, spicy and liqourice
tasted with the 12 yrs.
- Sweet orange, oily, woody nutty nuances with malt, slightly bitter on the palate. Short finish, nothing spectacular, but for the price? Somehow, i like it more then the 12-years old.
