What they say

Casks! Love a good cask, we do. In fact, you could say we celebrate them, just like Càrn Mòr do with the Celebration of the Cask indie bottling range. This particular bottling from that range is a 25 year old Miltonduff single malt Scotch whisky, matured in a single hogshead cask from October 1988 to October 2014. 144 bottles were produced.

My tasting notes

  • Appearance Sauternes gold (9/20), fine tears and rare, fine legs.
  • Nose Sweet, vanilla, fudge, toffee, white pear, grape, melon, apple, dry cereal flour, malted barley, butterscotch and salted caramel.
  • Taste Full-bodied, thick, treacle-like on the palate, great body, mixed fruit, apple, mango, ineapple, lemon, quite woody, carpentry shop and wood shavings, dry new oak timber, honey, a touch heathery, nutty salted caramel latte.
  • Finish Medium-long, woody, sweet, sawdust and barley flour.
  • Overall Oddly salted but good, butterscotch and fruit flavours, plenty of tropicality and a really good body/structure or malty backbone to this one.

Score 86/100
