The Singleton Paragon of Time expressions are the oldest and rarest whiskies The Singleton has ever released – over half a century of skilled aging embody the Paragon of Time series’ masterful exploration of time itself. Such long-matured whiskies only attain real character and true richness through great skill and care; shaped to perfection by our slow-crafting tradition.

This special bottling was crafted in Dufftown in the 1960s – over half a century ago. Every process was slow; barley malted and turned by hand on the drying floor. The craftsmen of the past devoted their lives to these slow-crafting ways. Aged for 54 years, The Singleton Paragon of Time celebrates a precious oak butt cask that was slowly hand-filled on October 31st, 1966, and sealed in time, destined to become The Singleton’s oldest ever release. Finally, it was then given an exquisite final maturation using a Pedro-Ximenez Sherry-seasoned cask – a last act of mastery in the pursuit of true richness that only time, skill, and patience can achieve. 

Bottled at 44.1% ABV and limited to only 235 bottles, it is extremely rare to find any whisky of this age - a true collectors item.

APPEARANCE

Rich deep amber.

BODY

Light

NOSE

Mellow, mild, and dry overall. The top-note is richly winey, as with a vintage solera wine; this scent fills the room. Fleeting suggestions of maraschino cherry and wax furniture polish lie beneath this, on a dusty base of waxed cotton jacket and hemp ropes, or in the warehouse, earthy floors, and hessian sacks. A balancing light bitterness emerges through the sweet fruit, while a drop of water introduces a note of mint toffee.

PALATE

At natural strength delicate in texture; light on its feet, lively for its great age and drying overall. Sweet in taste, beginning fruity and quickly becoming spicy. A Christmas pudding in a glass. Clove-studded oranges. Beneath, a bittersweet hint of burnt raisins.

FINISH

Long, pleasantly warming and elegantly drying, with a light yet spicy sweetness, leaving a warm glow. A drop of water elevates the fruit and sharpens the finale.

Best served neat.
