  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Great, mature old whisky from an often overlooked Speyside distillery, this Miltonduff by Adelphi is top notch.
    • Nose
      A hint of polished leather and malt, as well as a good amount of wax and a certain dustiness. There's plenty of room for ripe fruits too, such as mango and banana, while there's even a bit of orange peel and lemon yoghurt.
    • Taste
      A lovely creamy texture, with a few sweet arrival. Cherry syrup. Then some interesting spices, as well as sweet tobacco, cappuccino and milk chocolate. There's some raisins here as well, and coconut shavings too.
    • Finish
      More of the above, really good.

    There is a little honey and a load of crystallised fruit on the nose, hints of peach, pineapple, lime and I swear I can smell something similar to lager??
    I have never identified lager in a tasting note ever so this is a first for me where whisky is concerned, it could be a cereal note I suppose?
    If you leave it in the glass for a time it reminds me of syrup & pancakes.
    A nice nose anyway
    On the palate all the fruit is there with a nice dollop of spice and the fruit is stewed to the maximum here which I think is great and gives the palate greater depth. There is a little dryness in there but nothing to worry about and a very slight bitter note but again within acceptable levels,
    Some honey comb notes are there with a sugared lemon, orange & lime taste, exactly like those thin sugared jelly segments coated in sugar that are always around at Christmas time and now the spice note is increasing with time in the glass.

    I really like this, I do not think water is needed, perfect without but with a few drops (3)
    The nose is not as expressive but the palate has even more spice and possibly a trace of peat but it is faint otherwise not much change so still good.
    The finish is good medium length with a nice warming honey and citrus feel to it.
    It is a sweet one for sure but the balance is really great and there are so many flavours.
    I love it.

    Very fruity... very mature.. a spicy bitterness keeps it from going 90+ for me..
