    • Nose
      Sweet flower scent (only which flowers?). The Destilleriecharakter comes here pretty much to advantage, which can quickly become uncomfortable at Dufftown (for me at least) - that's just here on the loose. In addition, this malt is sometimes very immature. Another side shows nice notes of fruit candies (of the brand "Take two"?) Orange / lemon. Diluted with water, the flavors are more effective.
    • Taste
      The alcohol is very heavy and covers the flavors - with water it gets much better! Sweet, exotic fruits and light smoke harmonize beautifully with each other. The wood binds beautifully. - Medium body
    • Finish
      Long, dry and very bitter. With water : long, dry - fruity, velvety

    Notes von A.D. Rattray:

    Colour : Honey gold Nose : Over-ripe honeydew melon, pineapple, soft brown sugar, mocha notes

    Palate : Good mouthfeel, coffee beans, chocolate éclairs and slightly peppery Conclusion : Deep and complex old cask

  7. magic_slim scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    35 years old and 58.0% strength. This whisky must be something very special. So it is not surprising that all members of our regulars table liked it at lot. The best Dufftown I have ever tasted.
