  1. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The distillery lies on the Lossie, near Elgin. Its product is best known by a name which surprisingly it hyphenates with Glenlivet, though the Livet is some 20 miles away. The distillery is of great distinction, being built on the site of Pluscarden Priory, a monastic foundation where brewing and distilling were carried on from medieval times. This cask has given a pale gold colour. The spirit has a very strong, pungent nose which with water gives a hint of menthol and eucalyptus. Put it in a glass which you can swirl round and make it move. More Paradise Lost then gained, but definitely not duff.

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    N: SMWS’s second bottling of Miltonduff though bottle releases on WB currently go back to 1961 [2017]. I get huge runny honey notes, lots of cereal barley, ground flours, Lockets cough sweets and a cardboardy dunnage. 
    T: It’s strong [naturally] with a thick malty honeyed body.
    F: Goes on and on.
    C: Good & solid, true & hearty.
