More recently Diageo has relaunched The Singleton label using a couple of their other numerous malts, namely: The Singleton of Dufftown for the UK, the Singleton of Glendullan for the USA and the Singleton of Glen Ord for the Far East. It is worth noting that Dufftown and Glendullan distilleries are both in Dufftown, but are separate distilleries.
The ‘Singleton’ brand is inspired by an expression used by whisky brokers in the early 20th century to describe a whisky of which they only held one cask. I.e. a singleton is a one-off. Similarly, in card games the term refers to a playing card that is the only one of its suit in a player's hand.
