  1. gerrit de guru scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    I have to agree with magic slim on this one.

  2. Sonett scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    This one did not knock me off my chair. A quite pale experience despite not really having any major defects
    • Nose
      Light crisp and complex nose, there is apples, orange, yeast, fruitiness and almonds. some sulphur is also in the palate
    • Taste
      enters almost without tastes, then a sweet vanilla mixed with herbs appears
    • Finish
      Slightly peppery finish fading out in a somewhat bitter taste

  3. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    N: nuts, nice sherry influence, orange, juicy apples, butter, floral, some leather, fruity - citrus and later comes the sulphur
    T: bitter, very spicy, honey, fresh bread and orange
    F: bitter, lemon, grains, pepper and the sulphur again

  4. magic_slim scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    Macduffs, e.g. the ones by Whisky-Doris, are quite unusual compared to other whiskies and are sometimes even a little strange. This makes them interesting, if you want to taste something out of mainstream, but in this case the outcome is not very much to my liking.
    • Nose
      Warming,  malty and cardboardy with sulphur, tobacco, leather and oranges. Quite intensive, unusual, but rather pleasant, if you can accept sulphur.
    • Taste
      Smooth, a little unbalanced with cardboard and sulphur again. Notes of porridge, tobacco and quite a lot of pepper. Not really unpleasant, but also not much to my liking.
    • Finish
      Medium long.

  5. TheNose scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Starts malty and a little beefy. Some fruitiness, citrus? Chocolate. 

    Taste: Malty, yeah citrus is back too! 

    Finish: Peppery and malty
