    A wonderful fruity Macduff with some lovely oak influence. Every time I taste one of these 35+ year old whiskies, I just adore the oakiness and tannins. Really my cup of tea.
    • Nose
      A sweet start with honey, accompanied by vanilla and coconut. There's lots of orange and lemon as well as a nice amount of exotic fruits. Next to the sweet fruitiness, it also has a layer of mildew, tree bark and wood shavings.
    • Taste
      Lots of citrus, very fruity. Also coconut and pineapple with some sweet sugar in the background. Silky smooth and creamy with oak and tannins.
    • Finish
      Spicier (nutmeg) now, and less fruity. Medium in length.

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very rich but slightly over-matured.
    • Nose
      At first a lot of spicy oak and a chemical whiff. Then a full fruitiness with orange zest, apple, peach, grapefruit and lime wine gums.
    • Taste
      Currants, orange, toffee, burnt sugar, figs, sherry, syrup, almonds,
      milk chocolate and subtle pepper. Quite oily and slightly musty.
    • Finish
      Raisins, sherry and milk chocolate.
