Firstly, merry Christmas to all!

Noticing that label variations exist for the Singleton 12, I became curious for why this is the case. Turns out Singleton is a brand (bottler?) that represents multiple distilleries. This is from Glen Ord at the edge of Black Isle peninsula in the Scottish Highlands.

To be frank, I've never been one to bat an eye when approached with Singleton - always seems to be the choice pour at bars in every corner of the world. Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by this offering - orange, honey, and caramel on the nose. The palate is wood and spice driven with a subtle minerally and gingery finish. I liked it. Smooth and easy to drink.
