    Awesome balance and complexity.
    Macduff is as always flying under the radar and doing outsanding work.
    • Nose
      90 90
      High saltiness, almost salty cucumber, sherry, nutty with banana.
    • Taste
      90 90
      sherry, nutty and fruity, oily and fills your mouth.
    • Finish
      92 92
      sherry and nutty.

    Macduff

    Unbelievable this! You don't often find them like this anymore. If I had tasted this blind I would never have believed that the whisky was distilled in 2002.
    It really smells like old fashioned sherry aged whisky.

    You rarely taste this nowadays!
    • Nose
      N: immediately the smell of old books, cigar boxes and a sweetness of the sherry. Dried figs, sultanas, and in the distance some lavender. Also clearly the smell of peach and the smell of the ground of a forest. Salted caramel.
    • Taste
      P: nuts, a lot of pepper in the first sip. After that, the intensity of the pepper subsides. The sherry, of course. But then real old-fashioned sherry. Caramel, wood, sweet pipe tobacco.
    • Finish
      F: The dried figs are back. Pepper. Dry. Greasy. Light bitterness. Old-fashioned sherry that dries your mouth well. Nutmeg. Coffee beans.
