Whisky Reviews for Dufftown 1982 DL
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.71 points
- Unpleasant notes of wood in the foreground accompany the taste from beginning to end. Available for around 250 euros - far too expensive for a 30-year-old Dufftown from the 80s.
lots of tannin. Not unpleasant. Leather, rich red forest fruits, raisins,
full of rich wood tones. BIttersweet chocolate, pepper, cinnamon, raisins.
soft. Pleasantly long, cinnamon, spicy, chocolate
- good sherry nose, but the taste is dominated by notes of wood, aftertaste is also a tree and sour green apple. From 30 years expected more
Color: Mahogany Smell: Dark soaked fruit in abundance, subtly spiced summer fruit, cedar wood and a little sherry from the barrel Taste: Light oak, warm spices, liquorice notes and plenty of tannin Finish: Subtle, spicy, notes of honey hiding behind soft oak
- Awesome dram, excellent cask selection. Not super complex, but a perfect sherry bomb. Nothing beast the time spent in the cask.
Grand, distinguished nose with fine cherry liquer, toffee, cognac-infused prunes, truffles, orange zest and a pinch of spices.
Mocca, espresso, dark chocolate balanced out by dark fruit sweetness. Alcohol is perfectly integrated.
The sweetness from the nose reemerges, truffles, cherries, oranges and grapefruits. Very long and nice.
- Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Dark and spiced. Prunes, dates, figs, potpourri, butterscotch, sherried peels, rhubarb.Palate: Spiced and deep, with sherry, aniseed, liquorice, honey, toffee apples, rhubarb crumble. Charred oak.Finish: Sweet, manuka honey, nutmeg.
- Official tasting notes:
Nose: Dark macerated fruit abounds + distinctly spiced summer fruits + cedar wood & its sherry cask history influence
Palate: It is lightly oaked - being also overtly/warmly spiced ...... carrying liquorice tones & a big/full tannic "hit"
Finish: This is now more subtle - being rather spicy - and showing wafts of sweet honey beyond the soft oaky tones
