Diageo, The Singleton 53-year-old

RRP £26,500

This is the oldest ever expression of Singleton from Diageo. Distilled at the Dufftown distillery, this is the first in the Paragon of Time collection. With menthol aromas and flavours of jammy blackberry, it has an oily texture and tannins, providing great body. The palate is delicate at first, with flavours of jasmine Turkish delight, developing into Ribena and roses. The finish is elegant and ethereal.
