This colourful case flags that the Miltonduff is part of Gordon & Macphail’s new Discovery range – intended to explore the distinctive styles of sherry, peat and bourbon. In this case – it is a sherry cask.
So it was a pleasure to have a chance to try a different avatar in a teasing fleeting taste…
Miltonduff 10 year (2018) 43%
- Nose – A delightful dry sherry
- Palate – Stewed raisins and fruit cake
- Finish – A lovely citrus orange finish
I wish I’d had more time and opportunity to enjoy… However that wee nip was enough to know I would welcome an opportunity to try it again in a proper setting…
And what would this set you back? At La Maison du Whisky in Singapore, SGD 150.
What do the folks at Gordon & Macphail have to say about this whisky?
- Aroma – Chocolate and sticky orange marmalade transforms into juicy plump stewed raisins and sweet baked apple, freshly cut grass notes delicately balance the rich sherry influences.
- Taste – Sweet and spicy: comforting butter candies weave with roasted hazelnut followed closely by orange zest, cinnamon, and mouth-warming pepper maturing into plum and fig jam.
- Finish – Long with highlights of chocolate and stewed fruit finishing with lingering winter spices.
