Singleton of Dufftown Tailfire
TAILFIRE has been created using specially selected casks to enhance particular elements of the flavour profile of this classic Speyside malt whisky. It has a vibrant and enticing character, which comes from maturation in a higher proportion of European Sherry oak casks specially selected to enhance the juicy red berry freshness and sweet aromas of vanilla and fresh-cut grass.
The name TAILFIRE is derived from the names of salmon flies, inspired by the world of the Singleton icon, the leaping salmon, and fly fishing on the River Spey.
“A vibrant evocation of Dufftown’s fruity character with notes of fresh red berries and sweet vanilla aromas. Best enjoyed with a dash of water”
Nose: Instant sweetness, ripe red berry fruit – strawberries, stewed plums and raspberry jam, vibrant cut grass emerges with rounded maltiness, giving way to vanilla and toasted oak.
Palate: Notes of malt and green grass soften quickly with the richness of the fruit with a hint of spice amongst the sweet oak notes.
Finish: Sweet with slightly drying oak and a creamy hint of coconut.
