  1. RJKrueger scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It's really amazing what the barrel has made of a MacDuff in such a short maturing period. Very complex and tasty. Unfortunately too late to buy a bottle regularly. But my attention for subsequent bottlings has been aroused.

      Intense sherry notes, typical dark aromas of pickled fruits, some polish, leather sandalwood.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The sherry also clearly dominates the taste and offers a nice, deep complexity that for me clearly goes in the direction of older Glengoyne. A little sharpness lets the youth shine through.

      The barrel is very long and sustainable.

  2. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A real belter considering the young age. Fairly priced as well, sherry with no off notes. A winner in my book.

  6. kaasklop scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A wonderfull mouthfilling young whisky, nice and tasty influences of a sherry hogshead that give this wisky a wooden boost. 4 years old with a mature taste of mainly raisins. a Malts of scotland gem

    A nice droplet. For the price, the quality is excellent. The character of the Macduff distillate is still there.
    • Nose
      Honey, sweetness and dried grapes give the first impression. The alcohol is slightly oppressive at the beginning. Discreet draft, woodiness and cornflakes in the background; Dry fruits and dates follow.
    • Taste
      Honey and figs, coffee and dark chocolate mingle, I subtly believe that there is minimal sulfur, far below a false note. This is followed by a tingling mouthfeel and mild dryness. Tobacco.
    • Finish
      The finish surprised by its unusual for the age intensity and length. Sweet fruit tones, most likely fig, and drought predominate, oak swings bittersweet and with and turns off slightly acidic later, again tobacco.
