Nose

sehr spritzig, kribbelt in der Nase, Zitrone, Weißwein, bzw. Sekt, mineralisch, fast salzig, Kreide, mit Wasser dann getreidiger, süßer, Shortbread, Vanille

Taste

hui, der raspelt einem ganz schön auf der Zunge rum, viel weißer Pfeffer, was fruchtig-bitteres, da muss Wasser ran: Limette, Grapefruit, Haut von weißen Weintrauben, dann natürlich immer noch Pfeffer mit einer bitter-herben Süße zwische Kakao und Kaffee, Walnuss

Finish

lang, heiß, pfeffrig, bitter

Comments

Knackige Sache, nix für Weichspüler, der macht Spaß. Wenn ich mich recht erinnere, kostete der damals 40€ plus 10€ für den guten Zweck - hat sich gelohnt.

Nose

Aromatic but spirity as well. Juniper berries like in Dutch genever. Yeasty and malty. Some pear and melon later on.

Taste

Clear, fresh and malty. Very sharp though. Some pepper and ginger. Winey.

Finish

Medium long. Bitterness. The alcoholic sharpness reamins. Not much in balance.

Comments

This tastes like very young whisky, almost new make. I prefer the sherried style Macduff's vintages from 2000.

Nose

The nose is somewhat bizarre. Loads of grain in combination with some sherry influences like bitter coffee, walnuts and faux leather. A bit of cigar-box and wet hay. Not a lot of fruit. The only thing coming through is a bit of white and yellow apples, oranges, honey and sultanas, but you have to look for it. Some mineral touches as well. Flints, wet rocks. Water flattens the whole.

Taste

It is oily on the palate, but very bitter. Walnuts, grape stones, ginger, white pepper. The fruit does not stand a chance. Only dried pineapple surfaces. Razor sharp. With water, it turns a lot sweeter and tames the bitterness. Blimey!

Finish

The undiluted finish is long and bitter, the diluted finish is short and bitter.

Comments

A difficult Macduff in my opinion. Just like the 14 Year Old Dram of the Lords, this one needs a lot of water to become quaffable. But it is never really any good. A let down and the weakling in the Anam na h-Alba range if you ask me. Around 73 EUR.

mit etwas wasser:
nose: stark: weisswein, helle trauben, cabernet-sauvignon?, wenig: saure orange, oder grapefruit?, fruehlingswiese am morgen, suesser bluetenduft, ein hauch lavendel?
taste: suesse trauben, suesse exotische fruechte, mango?, vanille, das ganze umgarnt von etwas weissem pfeffer. gegen schluss, nach einiger zeit im glas, intensiv honig und popcorn?
finish: suesse und weisser pfeffer, mittellang bis lang.

Too much of anything is bad, but too much of good whisky is barely enough!
