    I found bottle No: 293 in London. It was sitting on the shelf of this lovely little shop for good 7 years. I paid around £75 for it. I have noticed this bottle back then when I first started seriously liking and tasting different whiskies. The label Macduff was not appealing to me at all. But what a pleasant surprise again. This is truly a rare cask. This cask can easily compete with some of the best Glenfarclas Family casks out there. Don’t get me wrong nothing outstanding but what a cask. This is why single casks are always good and I like to explore. Dangerously quaffable stuff.
    • Nose
      Well matured nose for 16 year old. No sulphur. Very malty, fruity and nutty. Honey, peach, apricot and walnuts. I can smell this for a long time.
    • Taste
      The whisky is oily and covers the mouth instantly. Fruits and honey again light oak notes. Very aromatic and slightly peppery with a hint of pears and may be slight medicinal note. But not too much and all very well balanced and delivered in harmony. Little water releases all the pleasant flavours even more. But I like it neat as alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Finish
      Powerful and long lasting. Not drying just very pleasant. A little gem to remember.
