Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Appearance:  Deep gold, polished mahogany highlights.

    Nose:  Approachable and rich.  First polished wood and nuts (toasted hazelnut) dominate, then rich fruits, both stewed (baked apples) and dried (sweeet dates) take over, with soft brown sugar.  Behind this, a stick of liquorice.  Mossy.  Water brings out a sweeter, more direct Speyside character (citrus fruits, pear drops!).  Clean and dense.  After a while, warm, dry aromas of pencil shavings or match-sticks.

    Body: Smooth. Medium.

    Palate:  Sweetness and crunchy nuts impress at first, then there's a smooth, fruity Speyside richness to enjoy.  Firm, with a balancing sweetness: hints of blackcurrant fruit, brown sugar and espresso coffee.  Warming and pleasant.  With water, still a pleasant texture.  Light sweetness, then chewy and balanced by a light acidity, with a good spread of flavours mid-palate.

    Finish:  Medium to long.  Elegantly drying and crisp; then a sweetly nutty delayed warmth, which lingers pleasantly.

    I love it, my favourite Scotch. It has been delisted in LCBO stores in Ottawa. I dislike the controls that are put on our choices of liquor in Ontario.

    Exceptionally rich for a Speyside, more like an islay without the smoke.

    One of my favorites. Nice, sweet and smooth. Very suitable for people who want to explore single malts. The nutty sweet taste, combined with the oak casks give this whisky it''s unique nutty and a little spicy flavor.

    I guess I would be included within the so-called ''new-worlders'' camp. I am not a big whisky drinker, and not a lover of the smokey or peaty tasting whiskys. I found Singleton a favourite and have served it to several seasoned whisky drinkers. Evberyone enjoys its uncomplicated, sweat taste. A tiny splash of water brings the flavour forward.
