Millburn 25 rare malts
Personal Comment
A very clear and fresh nose. Mix of smoke and acid fruits, green apple, unripe mango. Some tinglings probably due to the percentage of alcohol. Wax touches, vanilla hints.
The very first impession in the mouth is very acid, Green apple macerated in alcohol. The latter is very present and dominating. Quite a quick development on woody notes. Quite an aggressive palate.
The finish is lingering and alternately warm (due to the alcohol) and fresh (due to the acid notes still dominating, just like they were at the nose and in the palate), both fruity and woody, with however a clear domination of the woody bitterness.

Personal Comment
The nose is deliciously fruity and extraordinary rich and fresh. Wild strawberry, cherry plum peach and vanilla. This is such a nice nose...
In the palate, the first impression is this beautiful fruity smoothness which develops quickly on both slightly woody and slightly acid notes before coming back on fruity smoothness with a touch of nutty aftertaste. What a nice mouth!
The finish is quite remarkable too. However, a longer finish would probably have resulted in a higher score... Fruit all along!

Colour: old gold
The first nose is quite marked by alcohol, but after a while the tingling due to the probably high percentage of alcohol disappears, to make room for a pleasant mix of roasted malt and a kind of bitterness.
In the palate, presence of alcohol is obvious. Apart from this small hinder, the mouth is pleasantly characterised by the same subtle mix of malt and cashew nut. Very nice balance and nice complexity.
The finish is very long, perfectly in line with the impressions in the mouth.
A great whisky.

The nose suggests tar, phenol or mothballs.
The taste is surprising by its richness and sweetness.
Some hints of almond and nuts.
The finish is dry, but warm and soothing.

Personal Comment
Hard to imagine that this distillery has become a restaurant since years at nosing this malt. All the aromas who escaped to the chill distillation are wonderful. The finish is short an dry, after the sweetness in the palate. A very nice bottle. Another wonder of the Signatory Un chill filtered collection.
79/100
During the second tasting, the nose seemed to be dominated by slightly acid smells, partially hidden by the kind of fuzziness due to the non chill filtration. The taste in the palate is rather complex, and also partially dimmed by the filtration method, but extremely pleasant. A rather long but dry finish puts the finishing touch.
84/100
The nose is influenced by slightly acid and medicinal hints. In the palate, some freshness and some hints of citrus fruit but also of dried fruits. The finish is dry and rather long. At the third tasting, this whisky did not really convince me, but when I see the quotation of the two first tastings, I imagine this bottle certainly deserves a new chance.
74/100
The nose is really different from the first times, as it seems to have lost its medicinal notes, replaced by nice fruity ones with some peat on the background. In the palate, the acid hints are still present, with some woody touches. A nice finish, rather long, again dominated by a kind of acidity.

Millburn 1979
Personal Comment
A very fruity nose, with a great freshess (green apple), recalling a dry white wine, with a touch of smoke on the background. A light veil with some musty smells adds some complexity to the whole. It makes it a very nice nose. In the palate, this whisky is first rather dry, but it developes quickly but gently on ripe apple hints, with still a touch of very pleasant bitterness. The finish is in the same style the mouth was, and is rather long and complex.
84/100
The nose is relatively fresh, with nice floral notes and some fruity (apple) hints, a touch of smoke and some citrus notes. The mouth is smooth and rich, with notes developing from ripe but slightly acid fruit to malty sweetness. Very subtle and very smooth with honey notes appearing behing fruity impressions. The finish is quite pleasant, although not exaggerated long. A kind of bitterness behind the sweet notes of the palate.
84/100
A very smooth nose, pleasantly marked by sweet fruity notes, a touch of honey followed by discrete nutty hints, or even traces of gentian. Nice development. A pretty complex nose with a gentle balance.
The first impression is quite pleasant but a lack at body seems to appear soon. The mouth is less complex than the nose was. The slightly bitter nutty notes are dominating. Walnut, light woody notes. No trace anymore of the fruity smoothness of the nose.
The finish is very similar to the mouth. Medium length, memory of some sweet bitterness.
These notes are quite different from the preceding ones. Is that due to the fact the bottle is opened since ages? The final quotation is due to a different evaluation method...

Personal Comment
Color: Gold
The first nose is marked by the smell of yeast and hints of metal. There are not many other nuances, even if for the rest it has no aggressiveness or major flaws. It then fortunately evolves into slightly fruity notes.
The mouth does at first not offer much more. Pleasant without major frills, the metal memory of the nose is hard to fade. The mouth is characterized by quite pleasant notes, fresh without being acidic. Not the fruity freshness that is generally so pleasant. Rather bland freshness without much relief at the first sip. Apparently this whisky needs time to reveal himself, because later during the tasting it seems to be evolving favorably to a little more complexity.
The finish is long and fresh, but unspectacular.
