- http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=184 Color: Old gold rust red Nose: A velvety-smelling sherry bomb - old sherry, raisins, tobacco, lots of salty spice, oranges, caramel, dark bread flavors (brown bread), cereals, liquorice and delicate wood. If it tastes like it smells, then ... Taste: Mild sherry (again soft) with pepper, leather, dark berries, tobacco, smoke, mocha, and Turkish coffee. Class! Finish: Beautifully long - not too sweet and not too tart! "Good" dry wood with chocolate, mousse au chocolat and fruity berries. Comment: Absolutely creamy finish and reverberation - great chocolate 90 points N: 90 / G: 90 / F: 91P
- Conclusion: For me, this is the hitherto most unpleasant sherry whisky I've ever tasted. I'm sorry, but I can not think of anything positive at all.
Nose: sulfur, baby puke, old sock
Taste: overripe cherry, vinegar, wood
Finish: medium-long woody finish
- Macduff 18yo 1990 (53,1%, Malts of Scotland 2009, cask #1423, 124 btl.)
Nose: obviously from an active cask, probably first-fill. It’s a mix of raisins, dry figs, oranges, balsamic vinegar, cinnamon, caramel… Hints of sweet & sour sauce. A bit dusty as well, with a few organic notes. Maybe not completely free of rubbery notes, but they disappear. Mouth: heavy sherry impact with chocolate, coffee, pear syrup. Raisins. Minty edge. Finish: not too long, on dark cherries and dark chocolate. Drying oak.
This one is for sherry lovers only, but in its genre it’s really nice. You don’t seem to find many good Macduffs recently, but here you have one. Available on the German market for around € 70.
