The Singleton brings a new whisky to U.S.

Can't get enough imported Scotch whisky? If so, you'll be happy to know that Diageo has imported a 12-year-old single malt for tryouts in Chicago and selected sites in New Jersey before going nationwide.

Selling under the brand name The Singleton of Glendullan, the whisky is part of beverage giant Diageo's Classic Malts Selection line which already included The Singleton brand. The whisky is a 100% single malt, matured in both American bourbon and European sherry oak casks.

Glendullan Distillery was founded at the town of Dufftown in Speyside, Scotland's most famous whisky region, in 1897 and started production in 1898. The River Dullan is a tributary of the Spey.

Stumbled on a bottle of this distillate at Terminal 4 (Heath row) on Sunday. At 24L ($49) it is a worthy competitor to the Sherry Cask offerings. The wood plays a role without overpowering. Neat, it lingers --- with a dash of water the fruit opens more noticeably up-front.

I've been a consistent consumer of The Singleton as an honest un-assuming malt --- this rendition reminds me more of a Balvenie 12 double wood than it does a heavier sherried-up Macallan which is a good thing, I think.
