Whisky Reviews for Dufftown 2011 FegG

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.69 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    with water: now the Dufftown comes through stronger, more grain notes, also a little more minerality and oak, not too much water, then the malt breaks down

    Conclusion: I rarely had such an intense red wine finish in the glass, here I find it too strong, and the raw material was probably not really top notch, a bit too harsh and unripe. Good idea, but not perfectly implemented. At least for me not my cup of tea. Friends of extreme finishes will like it

      clear red wine note, which is quite intrusive / intense, red berries, currant jelly, cranberries, behind it cookie dough, vanilla, mineral, grain / malt, seems a bit too hard on me, not really balanced

      bamm, here I only have red wine in the taste, cranberries and red Johannesberen, a little pepper on the tongue

      rather short to medium length, after the red wine there is some malt and dry oak, without bitterness, maybe a few cloves and aniseed

  3. DramTimeDE scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    No, this is not working well - without or with water this dram is dominated by the bad domina (cask)
    very acid, too much of something that is not clear what it is.

    Lord Bellamy did a good conclusion and i agree with a lot from him, but not the rating of 84.
