Whisky Reviews for Miltonduff 1981 AD

- Tasted on an evening of 30+ year whiskies. Nice introduction to this distillery to be sure.
- Empty Glass: Almost a hint of brine here now,
cooked dough and hints of preserved lemons. Fruity wood peeks through
and supports a soft oak char note.
In case you might have missed it, I rather enjoyed this malt. The fruits, oiliness and malt cream were so good... I just wish I
had more of this. The odd spice notes seem to support the fattiness of
the dram and drive the finish of for quite a long time.
Oily fruit salad! Fatty and bitter lemons, rich fruits and sharp oak.
Spicy notes of chili and grapefruit. The wood spice and malt sweetness
are muted to begin. Adding water drive the fruits to insane levels and
mutes the thickness of the dram.
Meg Ryan shouting yes, yes! Soft and sweet to start, then the tempo
picks up! Rich malt traverses into very fruity notes. Soft oily
thickness carries vanilla cream across and then shoves a bunch of spices
into your face (cardamon, fenugreek, and Ceylon cinnamon). Towards the
end there is a salty note and more rich waves of malt.
Intense, rich and almost drying. Milk chocolate and sharp oak play
together on an oily creamy bed. Very rich malt with more surprising
fruits dot the finish.
- Nice expression by Adelphi, touch of "bitter lemon" :) - very fruity...
