« Perfectly balanced, Naturally Rich and Smooth » are words that describe perfectly this exceptional Single Malt.


There is a saying in Dufftown: “Rome has been built on seven hills and Dufftown on seven distilleries”. The Dufftown distillery is the sixth established in town. Its buildings, genuine construction of the 19th century, are based closed to the river, in a small valley bordered with trees and hills. Germination on malting floors has been used until 1968. At the time, modern condensers were used to liquefy the vapours.


The distillery started drawing water from the Highlandman John’s Well Spring from 1896 and is still using the same water. Dufftown distillery has three pairs of stills. Curiously, this whisky is described as “full-bodied” when freshly distilled but twelve years maturing in oak casks brings added smoothness and lovely warming notes. A major part of the whisky ages in American oak casks and a small quantity ages in European Sherry casks. These two flavours combined are the reason why The Singleton of Dufftown is so seducing and well-balanced. 


The uniquely shaped bottle of Singleton of Dufftown is inspired from traditional casks. The colour of the glass evokes the blue-coloured “lead glass” used at the end of the 19th century.


Because of the unique character and quality of The Singleton of Dufftown whiskies, the distillery features in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.

Colour: deep amber.

Nose:  soft and appealing, dry, reminiscent of autumn. Opens firstly on apricot fruits compote and ripe apples. A while in the glass reveals unmistakable hazelnuts and roasted nuts, bolstered by a sweet, subtle woody scent (dried tea leaves, pine resin). The fruits soften and give way to rich vanilla, toffee and chocolate flavours.

Palate: firm and full, nuts, toffee and mint delicately envelop the palate, before being overflown by rhubarb and apple juice. Darker fruits in the backdrop.

Finish:  long, creamy and warm, with a fruit compote freshness undertone. Reveals also a whiff of spicy wood and a touch of blakc pepper.
