Whisky Reviews for Dufftown 1997

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.14 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A relatively young Dufftown with already a lot of complexity. It would be great to taste this whiskky after some more years of maturation. At this moment a little bit too bitter for my taste though.
    • Nose
      Fresh and clean. Floral notes. Grassiness and hay. Polished oak and some mint. Turkish Delight. Complex and promising.
    • Taste
      Waxy and oily mouth texture. Oaky and vanilla. Citrus fruit of lemon and lime. Quite spirity. Malty and nutty as well. Peppery, cloves and liquorice.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Gingery. Some wood. Becomes bitter later on.
