The Dufftown distillery first drew water from Highlandman John's Well in 1896 and continues to do so to this day. Distilled since 1896 with water so pure, legend has it that rival distillers have even tried to divert its course. No wonder, since the exceptional quality of the water is just one of the factors that provides The Singleton of Dufftown Single Malt Whisky with its exceptional smoothness. The exceptionally smooth, naturally rich Singleton 12 Year Old Glen Ord Single Malt exudes profound sweet fruity notes and a lingering, pleasurable warmth.
Deep gold, polished mahogany highlights. Toasted nut and rich fruit aromas. Adding a touch of water brings out the classic Speyside fruit-sweet aromas. Light to medium bodied, sweetness and crunchy nuts, then smooth fruity richness. Firm, with a balancing sweetness; hints of blackcurrant, brown sugar and espresso coffee. Warming and pleasant, medium to long, elegantly drying and crisp with a delayed, lingering warmth
