The Epicurean Odyssey Series was born to embody The Singleton’s singular ambition to pursue deeply pleasurable flavour.

For the The Singleton 40-year-old grand finale, the deeply decadent malt began as a flavoursome 12 year old whisky, which was transferred to a series of rum casks to double mature for nearly three decades. The Singleton 40YO, pushing boundaries of taste with an astonishingly-bold & pioneering 28 years secondary maturation experiment. To enhance the base notes of luscious dark chocolate and sun ripened fruit, our Malt Master married these whiskies in precious Solera casks of Zacapa XO and Royal Rum, for a luxuriously smooth expression �delicate, sweet, exotic and outstandingly smooth!

Our 40YO represents the culmination of that journey, and the ultimate expression of that belief. A maximalist in time, craft and flavour.

Tasting Notes

Appearance:
Deep amber with copper lights.

Nose:
The nose is mellow, with a little prickle at first; fruity top notes hint at dried apple and are soon backed by a more savoury aroma evoking sage, while richer hints of fruit, soon suggesting plums enrobed in dark chocolate, sit on a balancing base of sweetly spicy oak, with light aromas of hard toffee and oak shavings. A drop of water introduces a wisp of waxy smoke.

Body: 
Light to medium. 

Palate:

At natural strength, the texture is decadently smooth and lightly waxy while the taste starts sweet, vibrant and very fruity, becoming slightly salty and plumsour mid-palate. Complex layers of flavour suggest pears slathered indulgently in dark chocolate and caramelised tropical fruits, as with toffee-covered banana and pineapple. Beautifully balanced and super-smooth, with sustained rich, sweet fruitiness balanced by slow-building black pepper. Velvet smooth dark chocolate tannins herald an appetising drying note. A drop of water emphasises the fruit and
softens the spice, bringing out a mouth-cooling aftertaste.

Finish:

Quite long, deep-flavoured and lightly drying, with black pepper spice and another hint of waxy smoke.
