  1. maltaholic scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Creamy, woody, sweet.
    Young and lively.
    Little of the sherry felt.
    Not a really nice nose.

    It doesn't get any better in terms of taste.
    But that's not bad either, don't get it wrong.
    Strong, somewhat bitter wood aromas.

    • Nose
      Fresh, cooling. Yellow raisins and immature green apples. Some liquid glue. Lavender, chamomile.
    • Taste
      Hay, pepper, a pinch of salt. Vanilla, marzipan, caramel sweets. Black bread.

  3. magic_slim scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Not easy to drink, which is true for many Macduffs. The aromas are quite unusual for whisky, but interesting and the overall impression is pleasant.
    • Nose
      Warming and sweet with the smell of cardboard and dried fruits (apples, apricots) at first nosing. The alcohol is not very well integrated. Grainy notes as well as tobacco, biltong and oxtail soup. Strange aromas for a whisky but interesting and unusual for sure.
    • Taste
      Bold, sweet and oily with lots of sherry and a little bit of sulphur at first mouthfeel. Notes of tobacco, pepper and grainy aromas with biltong and oxtail soup. Hints of oranges as well.
    • Finish
      Long and satisfying, turning from sweet sherry aromas into an aftertaste of dry old wood. The finish is very good despite of the old wood!
