A Gordon and MacPhail bottling of Miltonduff aged for 10 years in sherry casks.
The nose is of medium body, notes of malmsey, sherried peels, fruit salad, honeyed cigar box notes and tablet. There are hints of oaked tannins rising gently. The palate is quite full and well-balanced. Notes of toffee and Seville marmalade, shades of buttery fudge and spicy oak with peppery warmth. The finish is of good length with soft wood tapering out.
Very smooth and non-temperamental.
A key malt of Ballantine

Нос - ароматный фруктовый микс - просто взрывная фруктовая свежесть!! Вкус жидковат, хуже чем аромат на много.. 5+ за аромат 3- за вкус

My wife picked it up on a trip to Scotland. And then we opened it amongst a bunch of old friends. Like matured friendships, it flowed beautifully. With nary a hint of harshness. Will definitely buy again.

A very pleasant easy malt and far better than expected. I will buy again.
