The Singleton of Dufftown 12 Years

While Dufftown's new NAS range puts the emphasis on different cask types, this is the 12 year-old former "entry-level bottling". It's very sweet and smooth and has mellow malt aromas.

Fruit, Oak, Spices, Sherry, Apple, citrus
Taste:
European oak, Sweet, Coffee, cacao, bitter
Finish:
Dry
Nosing:
Toasted nut and rich fruit aromas. Adding a touch of water brings out the classic Speyside fruit-sweet aromas
Taste:
Sweetness and crunchy nuts, then smooth fruity richness. Firm, with a balancing sweetness; hints of blackcurrant, brown sugar and espresso coffee. Warming and pleasant
Finish:
Medium to long, elegantly drying and crisp with a delayed, lingering warmth

Nosing: ZitrusHerbsSweetCaramel

Taste: OakMalt

Finish: Long and malty

Comment: A rather rich and malty dram with a spicy oak bite. A warm finish with a twinge of peat smoke and burnt match stick. Dried fruits, fig and citrus notes found throughout. Some Bitter coffee towards the finish.

I really enjoy this whisky! I am rather new to whisky but i can see how this would be a bit boring for a whisky veteran, but for a newbie like me i would say its a pretty good dram.
