This is one of the replacements for the old 12yo. That was an easy drinking whisky: smooth, sweet, but nothing special. But it was pretty cheap and not too bad. Since Dufftown doesn't have enough whisky in stock to keep making the 12yo, they developed a few different whiskies, highlighting some of the features of the original Singleton of Dufftown. This one should highlight the typical Speyside characteristics, such as balance and smoothness. Well, they tried. It's sweet and smooth. That's about the only thing they kept from the 12yo. I was definitely underwhelmed. I know some blended malts that are cheaper but taste better. It has no depth, no surprises. I would recommend spending a little more for something better.
Nose: alcoholic, little bit of honey, citrus.
Taste: Malt, butter, nuts, honey. It's smooth, but not really balanced. It's a bit too much.
Finish: Short, honey and some bitterness.
