    Very beautiful fruity and sweet whisky, strong, full bodied, very nicely balanced, very pleasant.
    • Nose

      Very fresh and fruity, citrus. Pretty strong alcohol. A lot of grassy notes as well. Then apples, and later on a lot of honey sweetness comes through.

      Strong, pepper, pickering, intense. Fruity, orange, honey. Very full taste.
    • Finish

      Now milder, smooth, but still with a full taste. Sweet and fruity, honey, some peach. Pretty long, later on stronger.

    [November, 2018] Acorn is one of these high-quality bottlers that still (are able to) find and buy excellent casks for the Japanese market - that is why I always try an Acorn bottling if I can get my hands on one...

    ...and this is another fine example of a great Acorn pick! This Macduff is of a fine "Traditional Scotch" style with lucious ripe fruits both in the nose and on the palate complemented by delicious honeys and sugars and some bitter-herbal (e.g., mint) wooden notes that keep the profile in a fine (not too sweet) balance. Later tasty dark chocolatey flavours join in before the spices have the last word, finally. No flaw or off-note as usual with Acorn bottlings. Some water turns the dram (even) more quaffable but I like the power of the neat whisky better...
