29th January, 2018 by Amy Hopkins

Diageo Global Travel Retail has launched a 40-year-old iteration of The Singleton Glendullan single malt Scotch whisky as part of a new limited-edition series.

The Singleton Glendullan 40 Year Old is the oldest single malt ever released by the Speyside distillery

Available in Asia travel retail, the single malt is Glendullan distillery’s first release in the new Forgotten Drop Series, which consists of rare bottlings selected by The Singleton’s master of malts and Diageo blender, Maureen Robinson.

The expression is also the oldest single malt released by Speyside distillery Glendullan, which was established in 1897.

“The Singleton Forgotten Drop Series is an exciting collection to curate,” said Robinson. “We have been exploring the deepest corners of our warehouse to find hidden treasures that, due to the stocks, we could never release widely.

“The amount of time these liquids spent maturing in this type of cask makes it so precious. It’s whisky for whisky lovers and The Singleton Glendullan 40 Year Old is a stunning liquid to launch with.”

Matured exclusively in refill American oak casks, The Singleton Glendullan 40 Year Old has been bottled at 58.6% abv.

Just 600 bottles will be exclusively available from travel retail outlets in Changi and Taiwan. The whisky is priced US$2,300.

Diageo previously outlined its intention to make The Singleton the world’s best-selling single malt Scotch whisky. The range contains liquid from three distilleries: Glendullan, Glen Ord and Dufftown.
