Whisky Reviews for Millburn 1983 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.29 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    After a weird nose, this lost glory gets totally back into the game. Thank
    the Maker!
    • Nose
      The nose offers a strange mix of mashed potatoes, butterscotch, Sevilla
      oranges, hay, butane gas and cardboard. After having breathed for a bit, it
      becomes somewhat perfumy. Dried flowers? Mint! My first encounter with Millburn
      was equally strange. I am getting the feeling that Millburn and me are not a
      very good match.
    • Taste
      It is mildly oily and immediately both sweet and salty. The sweet
      translates into candied sugar, Turkish Delight, maple syrup and caramel, while
      the salt counters nicely. Seems like peanut butter. And I have to admit, this
      is actually quite good. This Millburn is rehabilitating big time. The cardboard
      is never far off, though.
    • Finish
      The long finish on lightly bitter oranges and spices take the doubt
      away.

  2. The Macallan scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    This is a prity good example from Sig. Unchill Filltered series. Smokey and heather some typical notes for Millburn a classic Highland malt whisky. Some good stuff.
    • Nose
      Flowery (heather), fresh, slightly smokey, sweet raisins, light confit fruit but still complex, theres a lot to be found
    • Taste
      Buttery, mellow, peaty, light sweet, slightly dry and yet complex.
    • Finish
      Chewy and smooth, dry with a peaty after taste and long lasting.
