The Singleton of Dufftown 17 year old (Diageo Special Releases 2020), 55.1%
Price: $145 ● Issue: Winter 2020 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
This is the first release of Singleton of Dufftown to be matured solely in refill American oak hogsheads. The nose is slightly earthy, with developing barley sugar and green fruits. The supple palate offers honey, sweet orange, walnuts, and soft spice. The finish is peppery, with crystallized ginger and a hint of dark chocolate.
