Singleton of Dufftown 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

We are surrounded  in life by things which are hugely successful but lack any real personality, managing to court the mainstream by being utterly bland and providing absolutely no challenge to the consumer whatsoever: 

Emma Bridgewater, Cath Kidston, Coldplay, Dan Brown, Nick Clegg, Pizza Express, The Hunger Games, the entire nation of Switzerland, every Nissan car ever made, Arsenal Football Club, Roger Federer, Kelloggs Cornflakes, Wednesdays, Starbucks, Dell computers, Fanta, the game of golf, the internet...

The Singleton of Dufftown - 18 Years Old  - 40% abv - 70cl 

Nose: Butterscotch, some runny honey, toasted rye bread, Manzanilla sherry

Palate: Pretty much the same as the nose with the addition of some nutty tones.

Finish: Pretty much the same as the palate with the nutty tones developing in to toasted brown bread with melting, unsalted butter.
