Note by Wilson & Morgan;

Our Macduff bottled last year from the same vintage (cask #6886) sold out fast, but luckily we had a sister cask in store! Once again, it’s a very rich, deep, intense old malt… only, this time it’s much more wood-driven: the impressive array of tropical fruits (banana, mango, passion fruit, and this time even grapefruit and a hint of green apple at the attack) is still at the forefront, but it’s immediately obvious both at nose and palate that it has to fight hard with equally intense oak, liquorice, strongly brewed black and red tea… and even a hint of unflavoured pipe tobacco. The final result is still very fruity but not as sweet as expected, and particularly spicy, balsamic and very herbal, too. Powerful!

Nose

Enormément de fruits (à la fois des fruits jaunes et des fruits exotiques)puis du gingembre et des épices. Assez fondu, pas forcément très complexe mais c’est expressif et très très bon

Taste

Intense. On retrouve les fruits et les épices du nez. Pas mal de bois en plus. Beaucoup de bois en fait. Cette bouche est relativement asséchante mais pas désagréable

Finish

Longue, séche, sur le bois, les épices et le tabac.

Comments

Un très joli whisky. Le nez est vraiment sympa.

Nose

Après le Glenturret #11, encore des fruits en pagaille. Ils sont plus de chez nous ceux-là, avec des pêches et des abricots très mûrs. Pâte à croissants. Léger gingembre. Miel.

Taste

Attaque sur les mêmes fruits qu'au nez puis on passe graduellement vers des fruits exotiques (ananas voire pamplemousse). Une superbe évolution ! Un peu amère. Texture laiteuse.

Finish

Longue, bourrée de fruits exotiques.

Comments

Quel cocktail ! Je crois que c'est la première fois que je vois des fruits jaunes domestiques se transformer en fruits exotiques.

Nose

Spicy and fruity. Yeah, the oak speaks loud and clear, but this is is nice and tantalizing wood. Grows creamy with a hint of chocolate now and some spearmint. After Eight ? Remember of one of these Whisky Fair Tomatins released some years ago.

Taste

Starts on the same oaky notes than the nose, with quite some pencil shavings. But after a handfull of seconds, here it is, the huge and unexpected exotic blast just into your face (maracuja?), not unlike a Whisky Fair 1976 Benriach this time. Remains rather dry all the way through, with a perfect alcoholic balance.

Finish

Long and tasty, becoming slightly drying at the end.

Comments

An unexpected delicious fuit bomb. Not the most complex, but pretty entertaining!
