Whisky Reviews for Miltonduff 13-year-old

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.62 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Enough pleasant whisky, smoky-peat notes are smoothed here, without sharp corners, perfectly balanced with oak and creamy sweetness, the fragrance in the development is revealed, enriched by many semitones and shades, the taste just lacks density, overall very positive impressions.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, first nose - ash and oil paint; peat and ash, very light, as in the place of the old fire, lemon zest, carpentry workshop, solvent, boiled vegetables, polish, plastic notes, sun-heated boards, smoked products.
    • Taste
      Oily, calm, juicy smoky peat notes, bitter bark, creamy sweetness, nuts, burnt twigs, coffee, fudge, some ginger, old leather goods, toffee, coffee condensed milk, dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, oak, peat, a little smoke, metallic acidity, oil notes, coffee, ginger, lemon peel, chocolate.

    [December, 2013]  I found another dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 5 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no detailed notes.

    [December, 2011]  I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  Unfortunately I took no detailed notes.

    This bottling also exists with a 3-star italian tax banderole, meaning it was bottled/imported before 1974.

    Truffle Cup 2013. Single Blind Dram
    • Nose
      musty but quite fresh still, slightly on the thin side occasionally, waxern, wax paper, sooty/smokey, weapon oil, citrus, apple peel, grassy, cellulose, granite, somewhat prickly/sharp briefly at the beginning. (88)
      Turning smokier later on, peat, burnt coal as well as some burnt wood in the distance next to the forementioned fruity notes. (92)
    • Taste
      musty, old waxed paper, old malt, fruit salad. (94)
      Needs to be drunken quickly, after 45 mins this has developed some serious cardboard & mushroom notes that is nowhere near what it was just a while ago. (88)
    • Finish
      more fruit salad, some beeswax, fructose, faint weapon oil/diesel towards the end. (95)
      Later: more smokey than before & a bit one dimensional now. (89)

  8. u485tfu scored this whisky 93 points Member Senior

    Odor: aromatic to pears and apples, extremely fruity. Then sweets, coconut, banana, honey

    Taste: wonderfully round and wholesome, nothing burns, oily sweet substance, pear, vanilla, honey, soft and tasty.

    Verdict: Perfectly balanced malt for lovers of fruity, sweet whiskys

    Note: 93
