Whisky Reviews for Macduff 1991 C&S

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.25 points

  1. JohannesB scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Ex-bourbon cask in perfection. This malt offers wonderful tropical sweetness, perfectly integrated alcohol, pleasant mouthfeel and beautiful complexity in taste and finish. Reminds me in its very clear fruitiness and the tender sea notes to the Bruichladdich The Laddie Sixteen and Twenty Two, which I both like a lot.
    • Nose
      A classic ex-bourbon nose with a lot of exoticism. The first to emerge are pineapple, apricots and peaches soaked in golden syrup. Add vanilla and creme brulee with apple compote. Later some sandalwood and mild pepper. A fresh note of lime juice and crushed mint leaves closes the nose.
    • Taste
      Gorgeous sweet! Back with creme brulee, candied peaches, honey and maple syrup. Even the slightly sour fruits like pineapple, kiwi and lemons are there. At the same time, after a few seconds, sharp pepper, salt and a little ginger appear on the tongue. The alcohol gives the malt proper power, but is beautifully integrated.
    • Finish
      The finish is seductively sweet. Caramel sweets, vanilla kipper and a mix of tropical fruits, which are now pureed in a blender and can hardly be separated anymore. Towards the end, delicate spiciness appears from the oak barrel and brings roasted aromas and some cinnamon. I also feel a slight maritime touch here.

  2. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    In general I prefer sherry finished/matured whiskies, but this bourbon cask dram was very impressive. Very smooth, creamy, complex, rich and voluminous.
