The Singleton 40-Year-Aged Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a sensually smooth single-malt scotch whisky crafted by the acclaimed malt master Maureen Robinson. Inspired by the decadence and deliciousness of chocolate, Maureen harmonized a selection of the finest 12-year-old whiskies and rested them for nearly three decades, the longest secondary maturation to date in The Singleton's history. She then finished the whisky in casks previously used for Zacapa Rum XO & Royal, luxuriously aged above the clouds. The result is a whisky that pushes boundaries and is forged from the expertise of two titans of extraordinary taste, The Singleton and Zacapa Rum.
The aroma is rich and complex, with notes of sweet fruit, toffee, and honey. Hints of vanilla and oak add depth and complexity to the nose.
The palate is full-bodied and indulgent, with intense layers of pears slathered in velvety dark chocolate, caramelized tropical fruits, and just a hint of intriguing black pepper spice. The flavors are perfectly balanced, with each note playing off the others in perfect harmony.
The finish is long and luxurious, with the flavors of dark chocolate and caramelized fruit lingering on the tongue.
