    Miltonduff 2009-2021, 11 years, 59.7% alc. bottler. Alistair Walker Whisky Company (Infrequent Flyers). Expansion: Post-ripening in PX-Sherry Puncheon 6341

    Nose: Dark chocolate with cinnamon, nougat and old dry raisins. In addition to lightly salted almonds, I also find ripe plums and a flowery/soapy aroma that I can't describe in more detail. In addition to the cinnamon, a slight note of sulfur tickles the nose, and I also have to think of rum cake.

    Palate: Very sweet and soapy at first, then enormously spicy and quite hot. Cigar tobacco, cinnamon and cedar wood. In addition, a lot of oak as well as pepper, tea, some ginger and thyme, and I also associate the taste with slightly damp matches.

    Finish: Very long, woody and spicy. Ginger and cinnamon, oak and tobacco, some dark chocolate. Unfortunately, the alcohol already stands out strongly here and is not really well integrated.

    Conclusion: If you want to look into the deep abysses of sherry soup, here is such a specimen. The Miltonduff still lacks a bit of maturity, some aromas seem artificial, but the color is quite nice to look at. 84/100 points (2022)

    The aroma is characterized by strong sherry and nut-nougat tones, balanced balance between chocolate sweetness and fruit acid. Then comes the wood behind it. Even undiluted, the alcohol remains discreetly in the background.
    The taste is strong, sherry, cough syrup, sweetness and then there is a clear bitterness from the oak - but it's not unpleasant. Even with water, the alcohol pushes vigorously.
    The aroma is more balanced than the taste, which is a bit wilder and rougher. A little older would have done him good. The sherry barrel has done its job as an additive - subtractive action would still be required ...
