The Singleton Paragon of Time expressions are the oldest and rarest whiskies The Singleton has ever released – over half a century of skilled ageing 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. Each meticulously crafted Paragon of Time bottling is a perfect embodiment of the way in which masterful craftsmanship has dealt with the fabric of time as an ally; a tool; an asset to create an artful product. Appearnce: Rich deep amber. 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. Finsh: 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.
