The Singleton 12 year is actually a threesome of single malts scotch whisky, each with a growing family of expressions around a core 12-year-old. First was Singleton of Glen Ord, Diageo’s ‘green grassy’ malt from the Black Isle which was reserved for Asia. Then came two Speysiders – The Singleton of Glendullan (fruity, grassy) for the US and Canada, and The Singleton of Dufftown (nutty, spicy), which was kept just for Europe. Today all three are available globally in a bid to become the world’s number one single malt brand. The Singleton of Glendullan 12 year old single malt family is built on the foundations of traditional distilling and heritage but at the same time is also vibrant and contemporary.
In each case with The Singleton of Glendullan, Dufftown, and Glen Ord, the range has been expanded with older expressions and those with no age statement at all. Examples include Dufftown’s Spey Cascade, Tailfire and Sunray, and Glendullan’s Master’s Art that is finished in Muscat casks.
The Singleton of Glendullan 12 Year Old single malt scotch whisky is aged in a high proportion of American oak casks with a small percentage of European oak casks to balance the liquid.

If you think of making a cocktail, best in a highball glass neat on the rocks.
