  1. Simon Stood scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    One of the best macduff I've tried. Powerful and gentle. Sweet and dry. Lollipop candy with light astringency

  2. Corrado scored this whisky 95 points Member Senior

    It's one of the most amazing drams i've ever had

    Great whisky! Combination of honeycomb, fruity freshness and juiciness, light grassiness without bitterness. Very similar style to the old Lowland.

    N: did you want the elegance of a good distillate left for decades in a good barrel? Here she is. It is very compact, all the aromas are fused together perfectly and dissecting them for a tasting seems almost a crime. Immediately there is an intense tropicality and delicate at the same time, refined: notes of papaya (papaya juice), then very ripe fruit. A slight patina of wax. Rossana candies: the filling, however, emphasizes Corrado. A hint of lemon. The earl gray tea comes to mind, almost mentholated. Butter cookies, milk and honey. Bouquet of dried flowers. Fantastic.

    P: the worst curses, typical of the wildest jubilation, were wasted at the table. A tropical fruit nuclear plant explodes, a dimension that takes the whole scene. It is very succulent, not very creamy, with a devastation of papaya, maracuja, goyaba, pineapple ... Butter cookies, sweet iced tea, citrus fruits (bergamot and a veil of albedo). Still floral, let's say "jasmine". Again, fantastic.

    F: long, persistent, here is still tropical fruit, again citrus fruits, shortbread ...

    A decent MacDuff, even a very decent one, and the fragrance and taste are multifaceted, a good game of shades, but here's a little bit of my style - well, a very sugary sweetness, some kind of grassiness turns me off a bit, but it could be 91-92, and only 90. IMHO of course.
