The Singleton of Dufftown Spey Cascade

Kolejny NAS […]

Recently while shopping in a commercial network I encountered a single malt below 25 Euro. Encouraged by the price I decided to buy it. Therefore, I present The Singleton of Dufftown Spey Cascade, 40% ABV. Reportedly this whisky was matured in American and European oak. It is NAS (no age statement). Briefly about the brand of The Singleton, because it is not a distillery, I wrote on the occasion of The Singleton of Glendullan 12 years old destined for the American market. [caption id=attachment_6550 align=alignnone width=1602] The Singleton of Dufftown Spey Cascade[/caption] [caption id=attachment_6551 align=alignnone width=1602] The Singleton of Dufftown Spey Cascade[/caption] N: from the very beginning and still in the bottle, very gentle, sweet, malty, a lot of honey and caramel, after pouring into the glass all have escaped, so I have to sniff a little bit more and ... still very gently, or flat if you wish to say it like that, I can still detect here the elements of sweets, coconut, honey and a touch of vanilla, perhaps a touch of peach too, its good that there is no particular alcohol irritation; S: here I have tweaking on the tongue, then ginger, traces of wood and apple, grapefruit with accents of bitterness; F: short, quite sweet, dry. Score: 73. The Singleton of Dufftown Spey Cascades is characterized by calm, or simply just flat smell, but without significant alcohol irritation, the taste is quite similar. This whisky should not discourage beginners, but also will not impress gourmets. Another NAS (no age statement) in a relatively competitive price (assuming that the current prices of single malts do not belong to favorable).

    Peated NAS from Speyside

    Single malts without specifying the age are produced probably by all of distilleries. Unless Im wrong? Are there any distilleries that do not yet have NAS? Hmm ... I do not think so. Lagavulin maybe… Sometime, somewhere I read that peated whiskies receive, at least statistically, higher scores than those where peat wasnt use in the production. At the same time, it seems that whiskies with specified age, usually, but there are of course some exceptions (eg. Laphroaig Quarter Cask), obtain...

    Highland Single Malt Whisky

    Ardmore distillery is located in the Highlands, in Kennethmont in Aberdeanshire. It was founded by Adam Teacher in 1898. Most of the production is used to compose a blend - Teachers. Darker, in the sense of peat, accents in Teachers come just from Ardmore. On the market basically there is only one edition of this single malt. Although recently Ardmore Legacy also appeared, but it hasnt fallen in my hands yet. With any luck you can meet other Ardmore expressions at the independent bottlers...

    In a direct challenge

    Previously, I took a very good The Glenlivet 18 years old. Today I decided to compare the classic 12 year old with the new NAS - Founders Reserve, which reportedly intended to replace 12 years old version, at least in some markets. In Poland so far, both versions are available, well see how long. As you can see the overwhelming trend of the NAS (no age statement) also affected this distillery. It seems that it is inevitable if we analyze the data of Malt Scotch Whisky Association about the...

In the case of basic blends grain content is relatively large, easily and cheaply it can be...

    NAS from Glen Grant

    The blog has already hosted Glen Grant, but it was a great collectible whisky - 1948, 66 years old, bottled by Gordon & MacPhail for Wealth Solutions. Today something closer to the ground level, that is the basic version of Glen Grant The Majors Reserve, bottled at a minimum of 40% ABV. [caption id=attachment_4059 align=alignnone width=801] Glen Grant The Majors Reserve[/caption] N: surprisingly for a NAS does not have typical impact of alcohol, as it is quite sweet with caramel,...
