- Whiskyfun review: Miltonduff-Glenlivet 22 yo 1990/2012 (56.7%, Cadenhead, wine cask, Claret) Claret is the name that the Britons used to use for Bordeaux, so I guess this is from a Bordeaux cask. Colour: gold. Nose: what is this? Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy this quite a lot, but it’s unusual. Campari-Orange? Bellini cocktail? Blood oranges? Pink grapefruits? Indeed we’re not quite in classic malt territories but I have to say it’s all very much to my liking so far (says the guy who looks for his gun as soon as he sees red wine in whisky). Bah, the colour wasn’t pink anyway ;-)… With water: more of the same, which is great news. Maybe did the Campari-ish side get even louder? Mouth (neat): I love to be proven wrong as far as whisky’s concerned, and indeed this is a wine cask that worked perfectly well. Did they use 1945 Lafite? 1986 Mouton? Perfect Seville oranges blended with ginger and red berries. Indeed, works extremely well. With water: oh! Water (my usual Vittel) made it extremely thick and syrupy, in a good way. Is that the probable French oak? Gingered maple syrup plus blood oranges and pepper. Finish: very long, spicier but still balanced. Comments: I hereby solemnly declare that this baby was my favourite red-wine-Scotch ever, whether full-matured or just aromatised/finished. Now, am I really sound in body and mind? SGP:562 - 90 points.
- Very light but still difficult to flee slowly. beautiful Nose: a sparkling fine floral sweetness. Fruit is nice too, I'm guessing apple, orange, maybe some grapes. Some nut mixes into a honey note. Everything is floating around vanilla. Taste: the alcohol almost kills here at the beginning. (52%?) But very pleasant but actually. fresh wood, and fruits stand out again to some honey and nutty. The sweet fruit is still present. everything again framed by a vanilla flavor, but here you will find roasted aromas that Finish: to a delicious vanilla cream let (cream brulee) the departure itself is rather medium long.
- I must say I am not very fond of the wine cask that was used for maturation here. I think it is good spirit but the wine cask simply doesn`t work for me (82P) - quite a difference to Serges 90P, but argues are as above. Sorry, Serge.
- This is very good whisky.
Nice subtle floral whisky wreathed in rosewater. Water releases geraniums.
Warm it in your hand and it turns into sugar encrusted strawberry fruit sweets. Yummy. Floral fruity and delicious with water.
Nice but initially oaky. Water makes it really nice.
