It’s #WhiskyFlashBlog time!
A whole bunch of us (see below) are getting together today to simultaneously blog about our tasting experience of a new Singleton Malt Whisky release – The Malt Master’s Selection.
The Singleton of Dufftown Malt Master’s Selection will soon be available globally to both on- and off-trade consumers, priced at about £30 a bottle.
Malt Master’s Selection is a NAS (No age statement) dram that has been matured in a combination of refill, Sherry and Bourbon casks, with a greater proportion of refill to allow ‘the sweet yet refined distillery character to shine through’.
The Singleton Malt Master’s Selection is an exciting new addition to the Singleton range. Consumers are becoming more knowledgeable, they’re looking for new liquids to try and are genuinely interested in craftsmanship. And the trade are itching to experiment with new liquids.
The Singleton Malt Master’s Selection with its sweeter notes and delicate flavour will appeal to those new to the category whilst still complementing the collection – sitting well with our existing fans and loyal whisky drinkers.

So, what did I think? Here are my tasting notes …
The Singleton Malt Masters Selection (40%)
Nose: Red apples, sweet sherry, oak wood, vanilla caramel with a little chocolate.
Palate: ‘Thin’ mouthfeel, sweet sherry, smooth vanilla and little oak.
Finish: A short finish that is pleasantly sweet coupled with a Very mild spice that gets a little more peppery towards the end.
Overall: A mild-mannered dram that gets tastier by the sip. Positive, morish, tasty.
Truly a malt whisky that is sure to gather fans when released and at a price-point to put a smile on your wallet!
