  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    This was not a hit with me. The cask used was clearly very tired as I could still mainly taste the distillate, of which I’m not a fan.

    Reviewed in my blog:
    • Nose
      Heavy malt. Quite strong ethanol, more than I’d expect for 15 years. Honey. Floral. Light fruit, pears, green apples. White grape juice. Slight berry note. Butterscotch. Simple syrup.
    • Taste
      Vanilla. More strong ethanol. Honey. Boiled sweets. Lemon. Something dry and bitter, a little unpleasant. Slight caramel toffee.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Dry bitter alcohol. Bit of light wood and some floral notes.

    Ah, autumn! You`re so difficult to spell early in the morning, but we can`t hold that against you when you give us great big piles of leaves, Halloween and whiskies like this 15 year old Macduff, which was distilled in the autumn of 1997 and matured in cask 9873. Douglas Laing then bottled it at 46% abv as part of their Provenance range.
