  1. Lakerfield scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Based on colour alone I already knew the sherry influence would be shy or even subdued. Little did I know the big (unwanted) surprise would be found on the palate. The astringency and dry feel totally clash with the delicate spirit. The nose promised some fatty, creamy ex-bourbon notes, but nope. Not a fan.

    Based on a sample.
    • Nose
      Macduff doesn't show up in my glass very often, what I do know is that apple juice is a common note. First sniff and whoop there it is, apple juice! Furthermore a flower bouquet, unripe banana, dried fig, cranberry, kiwi, toffee, orange marmalade, sultana, Mon Cheri bonbon, cream sherry, hazelnut, roast coffee bean and some wood polish in the back. That wasn't a very active sherry butt we might as well conclude. On a positive side, pleasant aroma's and well constructed. Cask strength would be the best choice here as I feel it's a little restrained overall.
    • Taste
      Different to what I was expecting after the nose. Astringent, alcoholic and fairly dry. So, this sherry butt wasn't completely lazy after all. There's apple, apricot, blood orange, cranberry, kiwi, toffee, cacao dusting, cruesli, old honey, flat cola, salt and pepper. Found this to be a little too aggressive on the alcohol and didn't like the development. This Macduff inherited all the bad genes of the sherry butt..
    • Finish
      Medium in length with dried apricot, blood orange, toffee, flat cola, pepper and wet pebble.

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nice fruity and sweet whisky. Pretty full, although the alcohol is not very prominent. Really enjoyable whisky.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fruity, tropical fruits, peach, papaya. Also some honey sweetness, and later on some floral notes.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Smooth but pretty full, slightly pickering. Sweet fruity, oranges, some tropical fruits, also some licorice.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Still a little pickering, sweet, peaches, honey, licorice. A slight bitterness underneath. Pretty long finish.
