The Singleton 17 Years Old Special Release comes from the highly anticipated annual 2020 Diageo Special Release range. This was distilled in 2002.
APPEARANCE: Dry white wine, with pale yellow lights. Good beading.
NOSE: Mellow and mild overall, with hardly any prickle. The first impression is of honeycomb; spun honey, but also a trace of beeswax. Beneath this is a faint f loral note of dry grasses or wallf lowers, with fresh orchard fruits on an earthy base. A little water softens the nose and adds pear drop boiled sweets, making all the aromas more evident.
BODY: Light to medium.
PALATE: At natural strength the texture is creamy-smooth, the taste intense and sweet overall, and both drying and slightly coating as that hint of beeswax re-appears. With water the effect is smoother and sweeter, the intensity reduced.
FINISH: Quite long and warming with white pepper, becoming chilli in the aftertaste. Lightly drying, it leaves the palate tingling. A drop of water starts to tame the chilli-spice.
