Singleton 18 Years 700mlProduct Points:539Points
Less spicy, more mature, slightly darker in colour, and deeper in flavour than the 12-year-old; the house style of the distillery, beautifully presented. A very sophisticated and well-structured old Singleton that balances a rich fruitiness with a gentle aromatic dryness. Beautifully finished and leaning toward dryness while maintaining an enduring, and appetising, sweetness, this combination making it wonderful with intense, hard cheeses, with which it creates a more-ish array of faintly woody, nutty, sweet and salty, creamy and honeyed notes.
Serving Suggestion: Best?enjoyed neat or with a drop of water.
Rich old amber.
Medium bodied, rich in the mouth.
Complex and well balanced. Smooth and unctuous at first, yet hinting at an intriguing dryness to come on the palate. Aromas of walnuts and polished antique oak lead into a whole bowl of dried fruits (apricots, blackcurrants, apples), followed by ginger biscuits. Later, a smoothly honeyed sweetness is cut by the cleansing freshness of crisp, newly peeled pears.
Very full and cooling. A splendid mouth-coating richness with elegant orange oil and rich fruit. Becoming drying and appetising, with notes of chocolate truffle.
Full, long, and finely detailed, with clear cedar notes against a smooth backdrop of fine, silky chocolate. Becomes leaner, with a memory of gingery malt; that dryness is now offset by a lingering sweetness in a polished conclusion.
