  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I like Dufftown and I like the 8 year, this is the best I have had for a long time does an extra 3% really make that much difference to the UK 40% offerings?
    This particular offering was bottled in the 1980`s
    I will get another 43% bottle of this, for only 8 years old it is quality, bit I am a Dufftown fan and think generally the distillery is much overlooked by the whisky public at large.

    Now I will try it head to head against an older 70`s 80 proof bottling.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A fragrant light toffee nose with hints or orange and lemon peel.
      Lemon puff biscuit, white pepper and hints of white wine vinegar.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Tangy and fruity with a bog vibrant zesty attack and there is some peat in the nix with hints or orange and raspberry.
      A good first impression, getting a little creamy and then some nice spice notes with the faintest hint of liquorice , with a hints of warm bread,
      Good balance of show
    • Finish
      88 88
      Spicy & peppery until the end, good length, moreish

    Believe it or not this is quite a rare bottle as nearly all the Dufftown 8 year were 40% abv, the 43% were sold in small numbers for export markets
