Producer : ?
Water :Jock's Well
Remark :From Collins Pocket Reference : Whisky
Prettily situated at the water's edge in the Dullan Glen, this is one of seven distilleries in and around Dufftown, a major whisky production centre with plentiful resources of water, peat and, previously, barley. Despite the abundance of fresh water in the glen, there were disputes in the early years over water rights, some of which led to the nocturnal diversion and re-devision of local supplies. The distillery finally gained the right to draw its supplies from Jock's Well, a reliable source of fine, sweet water some distance away. The single malt is still relatively rare, becoming more widely available in official bottlings in United Distillers' Distillery (Flora and Fauna) Malts series early in the 1990's.
Tasting comment : A pleasant Speyside malt with a delicate, fragrant aroma which is almost flowery, and a smooth, sweet taste. Doubles as a before- or after-dinner dram.

From the label :
Highland single Scotch Whisky Dufftown distillery was established near Dufftown at the end of the C19th. The bridgth flash of the Kingfisher can often be seen over the Dullan River, which flows past the old stone buildings of the distillery on its way to the Spey. This single Highland malt whisky is typically speyside in character with a delicate, fragrant, almost flowery aroma and taste which lingers on the palate.
