    For 40€, good bang for buck. Could of course be made better with higher abv and all that jazz, but let's be real, they didn't target the hardcore whisky fans with this release. Absolutely, could've been a cracker with more natural presentation, but even at current prices, it's good value for money.

  3. Defeatless scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    This is a friend of everybody. Yet a good intro to the distinct malt of Miltonduff.
    46% or cs might have made this a stunner.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet and fruity. Some foam banana candy. Quite some vanilla. The smell is distinct, but doesn't have many layers. It's not bad though. Some milk notes.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Sweet and creamy, little sour notes and some straw.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Short-medium length. A tad bitter and woody. Yet there are some sweet notes, but not much of an impression

    • Nose
      Floral notes, peach, creamy sweets
    • Taste
      Fruit (peach, orange), creamy sweets, milk chocolate
    • Finish
      Medium long and sweet

      My first Miltonduff super soft and balanced. I'm looking forward to older and Fassstärken

    Colour: dark gold

    Not bad at all, this is an easy going dram that may please a large crowd. I could recommend this to people that are fairly new in the game.
    Beyond this, I didn't find any unique selling points that make this whisky stand out of the crowd. If you like a fruity, minty and slightly waxy dram with some dried fruit, it may suit you very well.
    • Nose
      82 82
      The nose is quite friendly, in the Miltonduff style. Don't expect an explosion of flavours, it's quite modest. It's mostly bourbon-driven, but has some sherry influence. Vanilla and toasted coconut are most prominent, along with mint and yellow fruit. Wood, allspice and dried fruit (raisin) complete the nose.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Medium bodied, rather rounded, and smooth. It starts of quite juicy on juicy raisins and yellow fruit, then it gets creamier with butter, vanilla and pastry notes. After that, was and mint follow. Towards the finale, allspice returns from the nose.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Quite short, leaving a bit of bitter grape seed, white grapes, spice and honeyed malt with toasted muesli.

  7. DB1965 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A good slobber whisky, no more than that. The alcohol percentage of 40% is no longer of this time.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Aromas of flowers, spices, toffee and an accent of cinnamon. The smells all appear very subtly.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Sweet, dark fruit, herbs, licorice, in the background some oak and caramel. I drank better Miltonduffs
    • Finish
      80 80
      The finish is mid-long with notes of dark fruit. Not spectacular

  8. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Malty and dusty nose.
    • Taste
      Very little creaminess and light spices. Not too sweet and thin body.
    • Finish
      Medium finish with wood tones.

  9. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Citrus, caramel, fresh fruits, nuts, almond, fruits in sugar, cake, honey notes on nose.

    Sweet orange, caramel, flowers, milk chocolate, spices and cream notes on palate.

    Middle finish with spices, oak cask, fresh fruits and vanilla notes.

  10. puusj scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Sweet and little spice, as the bottle stated. Only the 40% sadly makes it a bit lame, cs should have been bottled.
