    Dufftown 29 yo 1982/2011 Riverstown
    by OLIVER KLIMEK on APRIL 1, 2013
    Hogshead 18648 -53.7%

    My Tasting Notes:

    Colour: Dark gold
    Nose: Honey, stewed apples, nuts, vanilla, polished wood, liquorice, hints of nutmeg.
    Palate: Very much like the nose with an added pinch of pepper and some light fudge notes.
    Finish: Rather long, fruity and spicy.
    Overall: Quite an enjoyable dram, a bit on the spicy side. The age does not really show.

    Rating: 84/100

  2. retlaw did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Dufftown 29 yo 1982/2011 (53.7%, Riverstown, hogshead, cask #18648, 212 bottles)
    Colour: gold. Nose: it’s a naked, malty, very natural one again, so
    more or less the 1999 with more age and a little more vanilla. Muesli
    and garden fruits, ripe apples, then.. wait, after just two minutes,
    some rather beautiful touches of mangos start to rise… That’s a great
    surprise! I wouldn’t say it’s tropical malt whisky, but it’s got a
    tropical side indeed. Mouth: there, the mangos are here again, together
    with drops of thick tinned guava juice. That’s a little fleeting in a
    way, the rest is more ‘mundane’, with apples, grass, barley, vanilla…
    But I find the whole very good. Finish: long, a notch dry and grassy.
    And oh joy, the guavas are back in the aftertaste! Comments: quite a
    surprise, I’m finding some parts of what was to be found in the utterly
    brilliant old 8 or 10yo OBs from the 1960s and 1970s. Cool! SGP:541 - 87 points.
