What they say

Distilled at Miltonduff distillery May, 2007 and matured in a sherry butt before bottling May 2016 at 9 years old.

What I say

I still feel like I haven’t sampled enough Miltonduff to really say I know this distillery. Could I pick it out of the crowd of Speyside distilleries? Probably not if you know how hard that is. Then I realise this whisky takes me into double-figures and I start to worry does Miltonduff have any special quality that really makes it stand out from the crowd?

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Full amber gold (10/20), medium-fine tears, long, fine legs.
  • Nose: Fruity and dusty/floury barley malt, baked apples, hint of gasoline/fusel oils, cooking apple, vanilla, toffee, sweet furniture polish acetones/acetate, and fruit cake.
  • Taste: Malty, yeasty, doughy, cider apples, toffee, apricot, peach, sugary raisins, woody oak, buttery rum-soaked fruit cake, honey and lemon.
  • Finish: Medium, woody sugars, ginger, lemon juice and gentle baking spices.

Overall

Fruity with ginger spice and plenty of cereal influence – pretty solid for a reasonably young expression.

Score 82/100

Don’t take my word for it:
