    An incredibly intense and voluminous sherry bomb, dark sherry at its finest. I'm excited!

    23/23/23/22 (90P)
    • Nose
      Cloudy and rust-brown copper shimmers in the Premium Snifter, on the glass wall there is an oily streak from which a multitude of thick "legs" come loose. Dried grapes and berries dominate the first impression, caramelized sugar and zest from old orange peel combine with musty notes to create a wonderful sherry note. Raisins and dates, dark apricots and velvety peach, hazelnuts and minimal sour cherries, blackberries and currants, the nose burns a real (sherry) firework. Dark and dried sherry flavors flatter the nose, a fresh mint and menthol note dissolves from an intense sherry aroma, the saliva is suddenly stimulated.
    • Taste
      Caramelized sugar and vineyard peach pour over the tongue, leather and a hint of tobacco are added, spicy wood tones stick to the palate while cozy warmth pervades the palate. Minimally tickling sharpness on the tongue, hazelnuts and roasted aromas, apricots and oranges follow, in the background are sour cherries and creamy leather. Sharpness tickles again on the tongue, the saliva is stimulated, the mouthfeel becomes creamy and dry at the same time! Voluminous dark sherry aroma rests powerfully on the palate, dried grapes and berries are added, also a fresh menthol note.
    • Finish
      The saliva is stimulated creamy and slightly tart, the dark and intense sherry flavors still stick to the palate, wooden elements rest on the tongue, the saliva flows creamily through the lower jaw. Hazelnuts and walnuts, hints of leaves and leather, with tobacco and caramel. The aftertaste remains long and voluminous in memory.

    Lovely full and fruity dram, the sherrycask influence and Abv just suit right. Very enjoyable.

    Delicious thing. I would have estimated blind a few years older. Sure, the mighty got sherry. But that does not work at all.
    • Nose
      As can be expected with the color, of course a lot of sherry. Blackberry jelly. Jostaberries. Plum jam. Everything is ripe, but not really sweet. Cherry liqueur. After that, wood notes come through. Go in the direction of musty, wet boardwalk. Forest floor. Bay leaf. I also think I hear something machine oil.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, the fruits become darker and heavier. Even the fruits described above are not overripe. In addition, figs and rum raisins. Bread with fruits. Then follows a creamy cream candy. Before the oak takes command. This brings now herbier and spicier notes into the game and it tingles.
    • Finish
      Walnut. Tobacco and leather. Salt licorice. Cinchona bark.

  8. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very pleasant sherry bomb. No extreme edges and rather well-mannered. No water is needed here, as it only elevates notes of black pepper and juniper. Certainly great value when it came out in 2015. Now, not so much.
    • Nose
      Deep and heavy, no effervescent alcohol notes whatsoever. Dried red currant, raspberry jam, and raisin bread lead into aromatic coffee. The oak is there, but only in the background. A few drops of water emphasize black pepper and wood polish.
    • Taste
      Moderately sweet arrival. Juicy and slightly tannic. Rosemary and menthol, dates and orange liqueur, as well as Turkish delight and white tee. With water perhaps even a little juniper or allspice.
    • Finish
      Medium. Associations of caramel and oak incense

  9. p4blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very good bottling by MoS.
    • Nose
      Very deep notes of sherry - plum liqueur, coffee beans, strawberry, orange zest, balsamico, soy sauce, demerara sugar, toffee and a touch of rubber.
    • Taste
      Rich, thick, oily. Dark red fruits and toffee/chocolate profile very consistent with the nose. Nicely balanced, ordered and mature for the age. The spices nicely add up to the flavours.
    • Finish
      Fruits, chocolate, toffee and some pepper. Quite long, very nice.

    Wow, what a blast! A fruity sweet sherry bomb. The nose is perfect and I could actually smell it for hours. At some point, however, the head says: "Drink this noble drop!" The taste of the blindsample holds what the nose promises. Extreme and sweet sherry flavors infuse the senses and let me take the next sip. This malt is a dream, I want more of it!
    • Nose
      Blind tasting: The blindsample in the glass shimmers a rusty brown and shiny. Intense, dark sherry aromas lift straight out of the glass, the high alcohol content tickles slightly in the nose. Heavy and oily drops recede leisurely back into the glass while intense apricots and oranges mix with each other. The apricots become more intense, peaches and a hint of fully ripe cherries are added. Wow, the fruit is getting more intense and sweeter! Sweet caramel and toffee rises from the fruit, the alcohol is now integrated harmoniously and supports the fruity aromas. Dark berries, then again this intense and beguiling fruity sweetness. Creamy butter, butter biscuits and a hint of almond. What a nose, a dream!
    • Taste
      Creamy and syrupy, the malt flows over the tongue, intense and sweet sherry aromas arise. Spicy wood and PX aromas exude a fantastic aroma, slightly nutty hints come to the fore. The second sip is dominated immediately by toasty aromas, spicy wood and slightly fermented berries and grapes. Sweet caramel mixes again with spicy wood notes. Very slowly, discreetly tart wood tones come to light. The walnut aroma comes back and mixes with the creamy and spicy wood tones.
    • Finish
      The nutty and spicy oak notes still echo. Slowly, fruity sweetness rises from the wood, caramel spreads creamy in the mouth area. My salivation is massively stimulated, I want to drink the next sip! Chubby and warm, the finish now exudes its aroma and does not really want to end! At the end of the departure espresso powder falls on the tongue and fine leather aromas emerge from nowhere!

  11. Einfach_Supi scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sherry, yes, but rather tart notes, oranges, kumquats, physalis, some caramel and yet quite stinging alcohol. Everything is superimposed on a dusty cupboard note. I'll give you some water ..... now clear vanilla, creme brulee

    Taste: sweetness of honey, now the fruits become distinctly red, black currant, plums, cherries. No wood to taste in the mouth, the alcohol is nice and warm with water.

    Finish: Short, first sweet, then comes slowly espresso, but not enough to salivate.

    Conclusion: Typical Speysider, very pleasing and mild, tasty and delicious.

    The whisky is one of the darkest I've ever bought. He is a bit over the top of the sherry influence, but really worth every penny. With a very good price-performance ratio, I made a good purchase here. The whisky, with its high alcohol content, has a mighty onset, stimulates the flow of saliva and it stays on the palate for an evening.
    • Nose
      The first impression: extreme sherry and distinct oak,
      Behind it come masses of dark fruits: raisins, dried figs, currants and dried plums. All this is framed by a coffee-caramel note. If you let a drop of water, spices such as cinnamon, vanilla and allspice unfold.
    • Taste
      The taste literally explodes in the mouth and leads from sherry over the oak to sweet notes like very dark caramel sugar and coffee. The vanilla is palpable and the spices are here again. You can also taste the fruits that you have smelled before.
    • Finish
      very long, the coffee is a red thread from Verriechen to departure, the sweetness is preserved.

  13. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Tremendously powerful and spicy Miltonduff, although I
    feel it is mostly due to the sherry cask. So what? Around 90 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is honeysweet on all kinds of dark fruit.
      Plums, rhubarb, grapes and raisins. Hint of pineapple on syrup. But there is
      also a trace of rubber. Yes, like a new tube for your bicycle. But it is
      certainly under control. Camphor and pine sap. A drop of rancio. Candied sugar
      and broth – a weird combo, but this is a great nose. You want to keep smelling
      it.
    • Taste
      Wonderfully oily on the palate and surprisingly soft.
      It is very dark on the palate as well, if you understand my meaning. Plum jam
      on steroids. Something meaty. Some nuts as well. Very spicy. Nice continuation of the nose. And eminently quaffable without adding
      water.
    • Finish
      The finish is exceptionally long, I feel. Creamy,
      spicy, sweet and warm.

  14. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample. I like the profile, but it's still too immature to score big. The average score is exaggerated in my opinion.
    • Nose
      Toffee and mocha initially, but it has some trouble opening up. Then some apple, cranberry, peach, cherry and rhubarb. With water more dark fruit such as bramble, as well as some butterscotch.
    • Taste
      Cherry, cranberry, date, raisin, dark chocolate, spice and a little tobacco. Adding water makes it more spicy, but also adds apple.
    • Finish
      Cherries in dark chocolate, plus some pepper and clove.

  15. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Young and furious Miltonduff!
    • Nose
      Dry sherry, orange, cherries and coffee. Raisins, chocolate and butterscotch and some vinager.
    • Taste
      Woody, cane sugar, orange and creamy - advocaat. Coffee, citrus, woody bourbon/rye whisky and spices.
    • Finish
      Nuts, fudge and some forest fruits.
