Whisky reviews for Macduff Batch 5 TBWC

5 users have left 5 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 82.20 points.

  1. YD84 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Wow, this is interesting. There are industrial notes along with some engine oil. But there are also orchard fruits and lemon custard and vanilla and caramel. Wet grass. Mustiness. Pine nuts, almonds and hazelnuts. Ripe bananas. A few drops of water round off the industrial edges and reveal malty notes. A few more drops and bright zingy fresh fruits come to the fore. This is a challenging whisky, but patience is rewarded. A characterful dram.
