Singleton of Dufftown Sunray (70cl, 40%)
One of the three Singleton whiskies produced by Diageo, the Dufftown is typically available in the UK and other European markets.
Following the Dufftown, the other distilleries in this range are Glen Ord and Glendullan.
This is an non-age-stated release from the Speyside distillery.
One of two no age statement single malt Scotch whiskies released in 2014 for the Singleton of Dufftown range (the other being Tailfire). Sunray takes its name from a type of fly used for salmon fishing, but there's nothing fishy about this yummy expression. Aged in American bourbon casks, it's the smooth brother to the vibrant Tailfire.
Dufftown was built in 1896, becoming part of the Arthur Bell & Sons portfolio in 1933. As with Blair Athol, Dufftown was regularly bottled as a single malt, despite its importance to the Bell's blends. When the company was bought by Guinness in 1985, these bottlings stopped, but a Dufftown distillery bottling returned in 1991 as part of United Distillers’ Flora & Fauna series, later becoming part of The Singleton stable. Prior to the construction of Roseisle, Dufftown was Diageo's largest distillery.
