Tailfire is one of two no age statement single malt Scotch whiskies released for the Singleton of Dufftown range in 2014 (the other being Sunray). In tune with the berry red label, the Tailfire is a fruit-laden expression, with a high proportion of the whisky coming from European Sherry casks.
Nose: Crisp apple, red grape, raspberry and candied orange peel all jump out. A grassy green note and Wensleydale & Cranberry maintain balance whilst a touch of tobacco develops over time.
Palate: Raspberry bush, more Wensleydale. Oats, vanilla and a hint of pepper.
Finish: Drying and hot
rod with lip smacking fruitiness.
Overall: A vibrant, berried Singleton with enough depth to keep you interested.
