Producer's Tasting Notes
Deep gold, polished mahogany highlights.
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.
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.
Medium to long. Elegantly drying and crisp; then a sweetly nutty delayed warmth, which lingers pleasantly.

A very, very generic whisky. Has no discernible flavour, I doubt it’s been in the casks for more than 5 years, and refill casks at that. The Singleton 15 is very decent, the rest of their range is average to be polite.
Fairly smooth, but really lacking flavour, to call it generic would be kind. Definitely a drinker for those who don’t appreciate proper whisky. The finish is non existent.
This is a very good 12 year old single malt whiskey at a reasonable price. The tasting notes shown are quite accurate. I particularly like the finish which is quite long and hangs around. The oak maturation really comes through in the taste. Very good and if often on offer but well worth the price anyway.
A good 12yo single malt, decent to nose and quite rich on tbe palate, but not overly complex. A nice daily sipper if you like the profile, I'd recommend it.
As a malt drinker and following the passing of my father recently, i decided to purchase something special to toast his honor, i found this singleton 12 year old malt very very smooth and i have to say very moreish.....!!!
