Singleton 12

Here’s a good entry-level Scotch for under $35.  I bought this 50mL bottle at a local liquor store for $3 (not bad!) and I don’t know how long the bottle sat on the shelf.  I tasted this three different times (three small pours) and here are my impressions: Sweet, sherried nose, candy, sugary start and short but pleasant finish.  Really approachable and a good beginner scotch.  Very slight hint of smoke on the finish (but I could not get the same hint on my second and third taste).  Nothing to write home about, good for a beginner and not that expensive.  But for around $35 for a standard 750mL bottle, you’re probably better off buying something else.  B-
