Whisky Reviews for Dufftown 1983 SS

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.27 points

  1. Malinois scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    My points are determined by a neat dram.
    I added some water but that didn't made it better (it didn't killed it, but I don't recommend it)
    • Nose
      88 88
      Delicate: some appel pear fruit with an yellow touch in a dunnage warehouse way. There is also some sweetness and vanilla. After a while some grassy notes seams to be hidden in the back. Also very soft floral hints.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The fruity appel pear mix with some yellow fruit hints is back.
      sweetness, spices, juicy oak.

      I added some water and the oak is more pronounced. Also the dram is out of the blue very floral.
      I recommend not to add water!
    • Finish
      86 86
      Not very pronounced: short fruity, becomes a little floral with juicy oak a hint of nutmeg. After a while it dies out demi sec and with the oak becoming a bit louder. The floral side holds up.

      With water: more floral oak and less fruit. Not recommended.

  2. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    LMDW information: Bottled under the Silver Seal label by the Italian firm Whisky Antique, this version of Dufftown Distillery's single malt is, in spite of its somewhat elevated degree, a rather light and fruity whisky. Marked with notes of vanilla, almonds and apples, the mouth reveals apricots and spices, followed by an appetizing bitterness for the finish.
