Tailfire is one of two no age statement single malt Scotch whiskies released for the Singleton of Dufftown range in 2014. In tune with the berry red label, the Tailfire is a fruit-laden expression, aged in a combination of European and American oak casks, producing a vibrant, fruity and fresh style of whisky. The vibrant, red berry freshness is achieved by a combination of toasted ex Sherry casks bringing richness and body, and charred American oak casks which allow the subtle berry sweetness to come to the fore.
