Whisky Reviews for Dufftown 1997 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.07 points

  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      First a little closed, but then beautiful dried fruit note (apples and apricots), oily nuts, caramel and something Porrdige. Later, hay, oak and nougat follow. With water: fresh, splattered, citrus, quince, light grapes, grass and a biscuit-like maltiness.
    • Taste
      Full sweet fruity start. Oak, grass, citrus, peppery spice and hay. With water: oak, marzipan, peppery tingling spiciness and a syrupy reminiscent of tropical fruits. Later also powdered sugar.
    • Finish
      Sweet, heavy fruit, oranges, light grapes, apricots and cocoa dust end in a long finish.

  2. rottendon scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, clean aromas with elegantly discreet oak, as well as well-integrated alcohol and the fact that it is less complex and uncomplicated, make this a treat dessert whisky.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    I would not have come to Dufftown in life. Qualitatively separate the worlds from the original bottlings.
    • Nose
      Apples and malt and vanilla greet the nose. Is becoming increasingly biscuitous. Marzipan comes on, the fruit notes disappear completely and are replaced by sherry tones. Will become slightly grassy after some time when heated.
    • Taste
      Powerfully sweet and strong with only soft oak. Honey, marzipan and candied papayas give a harmonious overall picture.
    • Finish
      The sweetness goes and the oak sounds soft medium long. Even a few crumbs of salt are to be found, but mainly remain at the end of nutty notes.
