      Fruity, full of figs, cooked apples, oranges, raisins. Some leather and hazelnut tones.
    • Taste
      Fig-bread with raisins, oranges, leathery tones, cooked apples, hint of coconut. Sweet and very powerful (spices). Turns more towards nutty and ginger after a while.

    It keeps surprising
    me how good Macduff actually can be. Especially if you consider that it is the
    signature malt in William Lawsons,
    which I find to be less than mediocre. Weird.
    • Nose


      The nose is sweet and
      nutty on hazelnut, coconut and freshly sawn wood. Some caramelized apple, blood
      oranges, a pinch of cloves and some woodsmoke. Fresh and crispy.
    • Taste


      On the palate, this
      is all apple, quickly followed by spices and a bit waxy. A tad mineral too. It reminds me of graphite, as in a
      pencil. Slightly drying with
      a salty touch. Does not need any water.
    • Finish


      The finish is
      surprisingly long and slightly bitter, on fruit cake.

  7. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Another warm, juicy and spicy Macduff. A good daily sherry bottling, similar to the ones we've seen before. Buy it now and save it until the winter returns.
    • Nose
      Nicely fruity and youthful sherry. Lots of oranges, cooked apples, figs, a little walnut liqueur and fudge. A few flinty notes as well. Some leather. Cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Sweet and quite fruity again. Very raisiny, with figs and oranges again. Fruitcake and berries. Powerful and graceful at the same time. Evolves on chocolate notes, nuts and spices (pepper, ginger). Hints of coffee. Smoother and fruitier with a drop of water.
    • Finish
      Long, still quite sweet with berries and plenty of drier spices now.
