Malaysia’s No. 1 Single Malt whisky, The Singleton releases a new
39 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky of exceptional richness from The Singleton of Glen Ord
distillery. Emerging from the oak after a 39-year quest to epitomise the intensity and lavishness of
exquisite European wines through whisky favour, is a Single Malt Scotch unlike any that has come
before it. With only 1,695 bottles available globally, this rare single malt celebrates The Singleton’s
journey to push boundaries in search of whiskies with extraordinary richness and depth of flavour.

Appearance: Red-hued amber, polished rosewood. Fine beading

Nose: The nose-feel is mellow, and the aroma is profoundly complex. Mild at first and vinous, with fruity top notes suggesting a rich fruit cake with wine-soaked raisins, candied orange peel and toasted almonds. Later some butterscotch emerges, with a slightly burnt edge to the cake. Water dials back the fruit and introduces a cooling effect.

Body: Medium to full

Palate: At natural strength, light yet creamy-smooth; a very slightly waxy texture and mouth-watering, sweet start with a notably fruit clove-studded spiciness, succulent blackberries and muscovado sugar. Then gently drying, with more spice towards the end yielding a light peppery warmth. Richly flavoured and perfectly balanced, it drinks well neat. With just a dash of water, the texture is thinner, and the sweetness comes forward slightly; there is a share of salt not at the expense of spicier warmth, which returns to the finish.

Finish: Very long, fruity, and warming, with a lingering spicy warmth and a hint of salted plums in the aftertaste. The latter is increased by a drop of water, when the whole aftertaste becomes unusually menthol-cool, with perhaps a suggestion of cherry liqueur chocolates.
