Singleton 12 (Dufftown)

Postby Doug1937 » Sun Nov 30, 2008 4:57 am

I bought a bottle of this mainly because I'd not heard of it before, and because it wasn't too expensive. I was pleasantly surprised to note that it has a strong flavor of anise, or licorice, reminding me of ouzo, akvavit, or even absinthe. I hadn't expected to find this flavor in a single malt scotch. Has anyone else noticed this, or am I imagining the anise? It's a very pleasant dram, all in all.

Haven't tried this one myself but am interested in doing so.
Does it taste like an other common single malts you have tried?

hmm, I've tried this dram a couple of times in whisky shops and don't particularly remember the flavours you mention Doug, but there is no reason why they couldn't be there. They certainly do appear in some drams that I can recall.
