  2. aphex scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    An excellent Macduff, fruity, refined and complex.
    • Nose
      Yellow and exotic fruits (peaches, apricots, plums, grapefruits, ...). Hints of jam. Honey. A touch of vanilla. Herbal notes.
    • Taste
      Fruity, round and creamy, almost juicy. Yellow fruits, citrus, honey, spices (pepper, cloves, ...), nuts, a touch of oak. Drying.
    • Finish
      Medium, spicy, oaky, drying.

  3. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Oh well. Nice, if you stand on liquid gummi bears. But there are clearly much better 70s Macduffs. Very little water makes it a bit rounder and the gummy bears go back.
    • Nose
      Exciting warm fruity-exotic nose, vanilla kipper, malty. Not insanely complex, but expressive.
    • Taste
      Starts round and warm-fruity. Then comes an artificial fruity fat gummy bear note with ginger and plenty of drying, peppery-spicy wood.
    • Finish
      Again the gummy bears and apricot jam full, very dry with dominant barrel tannins. Ends noticeably bitter, medium long.
