Whisky Reviews for Miltonduff 2006 WCh

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    An imperfect, overly sherried Miltonduff. I know some people go nuts for this kind of over the top, sherry matured whisky. To me this is just extremely unbalanced. It lacks complexity too.
    • Nose
      Dry sherry and lots of wood is basically all I'm getting at first. There's some dark chocolate, cocoa powder and brown sugar as well. Adding water makes it sweeter, somewhat candy-esque.
    • Taste
      Spices (pepper, cloves) and big, overpowering notes of sherry, lots of kirsch gateau and also a fair amount of gun powder. Very dry. With water it becomes more spicy and more dry.
    • Finish
      Long, dry, spicy.

    Well .... what should I write about this? Again, a young sherry cask analgefisteter malt that can not be distinguished from the vast amounts of other bottlings ... after all, the alcohol is pretty well involved for just 60 turns

    Just awesome and exactly my taste.
    • Nose
      Notes from online blind tasting:

      Colour:
      Mezzo mix

      Nose:
      Brutally cool! Yes ..... it's love. :-)
      Sweet pipe tobacco, dark cherries, blackberry liqueur, oiled leather, PX ?, peppermint, roasted aromas, figs, slightly tart herbal aromas, lovage, artificial flowery intermediate note, fresh sorrel, a little hibiscus blossoms.
    • Taste
      Tart - spicy start. Full load of sherry, warm popcorn, leather, moist tobacco, the herbs have a rather sweet taste, lovage, warm plum jam and blackberries.
    • Finish
      Long. First sweet, then ginger, dry wood note.

    close to perfect for my taste. i love younger sherries
    • Nose
      strong dry sherry notes, vanilla, butter, toffee
    • Taste
      intense sherry, dry in the mouth, some leather and wood. perfectly matured. good balance 
    • Finish
      long finish, full of sherry. dried sherries on the tounge for a long while.

  6. p4blo scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Immature, wild spirit slightly covered up by a highly reactive cask. I'm not entirely convinced.
    • Nose
      Fudge, toffee, caramel, demerara sugar, nougat, milk chocolate, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg. Real nice despite some alcohol influence, packed with flavours.
    • Taste
      Some red fruits, prunes and raisins dominate, dates, notes of chocolate, espresse and toffee. It's very spicy, the youthfulness shines through big time. Feels hot, powerful, but young and very chaotic.
    • Finish
      Slightly bitter, spicy, clearly young. Medium long.

    Nose: wow what a sherry bomb. Cherry cola, caramel, molasses, chocolate sauce, a little mint, plum wine, leather chair - just everything that goes into such a dark broth inside ^ ^
    Taste: thick and heavy with lots of cherry, plum, caramel and gingerbread, the oak brings some spice, leather and furniture polish. The alcohol is well integrated and carries the above notes in a long and dry finish.
    Super sherry bomb that reminds an elderly El Maximos but has more to offer. PLV was very good for the issue price but I just disturb these 0,5l bottles.
