1 of only 124 bottles from cask 12501
Miltonduff is ranked ‘Top Class’ by blenders and is a key component in the Ballantine’s and Teacher’s blends. As a result little is available as a single – indeed, Allied Distillers, its owner, do not bottle the malt themselves. This 26 year old hogshead has only produced 124 bottles, and the whisky is a lovely rich, gold colour. On the nose, an enticing rum and raisin, even Mackie’s Honey Comb ice cream with a caramel topping. Then Bounty Bars, apple crumble with added cherries, nuts and cinnamon, and finally some coconut oil. Best tasted without water, this is mouth-filling with a rich texture and plenty of coconut and whipped cream in a medium to long finish.
