Personal Comment
The nose is strongly marked by citrus fruits. A slightly acid touch, on a barley background. Despite the strong degree of alcohol, the whole is relatively sweet and rather pleasant.. It misses some roundness, which is typical for the whiskies of the area, but this bottle remains a very good bottle. It seems to be very difficult to find outside UK. The finish is relatively long and pleasant.
79/100
The second tasting just confirmed the first one. The slightly acid hints and the perfectly balanced and rather complex nose and palate are still present. However the pleasure is great, and this explains a better quotation than the first time.
84/100
A rather fresh nose, discretely marked by citrus fruits and cut grass. In the palate, a very nice complexity, going from citrus to slightly earthy hints through fruity hints (sloe) and chocolate hints, the whole on a pleasant woody background. A very interesting finish, lingering, where woody hints are mixed with the memory of malt on citrus background.

Miltonduff Dewar Rattray 28
Personal Comment
The nose presents nice hints of exotic fruits and a touch of underlying smoke. The nose seems to develop constantly and presents alternately slight acid notes (mango) and hints of cocoa. The smoke also tends to come and go. Very amazing nose, slightly tingling, but this does not hinder the pleasure. In the palate, this whisky is quite complex too, with a marked presence of exotic fruits, some refreshing acidity, coffee. The finish is lingering, and a kind of acidity remains in the palate, while a pleasant heat and cocoa feeling seems to invade the whole body.
84/100
What an amazing nose with malt notes where smooth fruit hints (sweet melon) seem to integrate methodically, surrounded by a light wax smell.
The palate develops first on quite a bitter register before the actual explosion of quite contrasted but complementary tastes. The mouth is even more spectacular than the nose was. Very complex, with clear woody hints which seem to come and go, just like waves and smoother notes of malted barley fill the holes. Fruity and acid tastes complete the whole cycle.
The finish is lingering and warm, with a slight prominence of acid fruits hints, but the light woody whiffs are present too. The finish is particularly warm even if not hindered at all by the alcohol, even if this presence is obvious,
Superb whisky.
88/100
Colour: Old gold
Very nice nose with nice slightly woody notes, ripe fruit and spices, then pepper, notes of coffee. In short a remarkable complexity and a lot of fun announced for the rest of the tasting.
The first palate is very nice also. Ripe fruit and malt especially, nuts and other pleasant tastes. The mouth is slightly behind the nose, but still excellent.
The finish is long and warm and happy memories of the mouth continues.

Personal Comment
The nose is clearly marked by ripe fruit (melon, pear). Very discrete nutty notes appear on the background. The palate is a nice mix of smooth, bitter and slightly acid notes. Really complex, the mouth is much more exciting than the nose was. Ripe fruit, hazelnuts, plums, etc all jumbled up together. The finish is remarkably long and warm. It offers quite contrasts compared to the mouth.

Nice fruity and fresh nose. Some green apple impression.
In the palate, fruity notes seem to be completed by light yeast hints which are quite pleasant, giving some more complexity to this excellent whisky.
The finish is lingering, prolonging perfectly the mouth even with the addition of some malty notes.

Personal Comment

Color: Gold
A fruity nose, very expressive. Ripe fruit, the peach, pear, but also intense floral notes. Pleasant and complex, here is an extremely promising nose.
First discreet on the palate, the taste is evolving rapidly toward some very nice notes of vanilla, fruit with a slight bitterness that makes it an even more pleasant by increasing complexity.
The complex, although quite mild acids appear discrete notes, is remarkably balanced.
The finish is long, and floral notes take over.

Another success. Very good whisky.

Comment by mapi
fresh and fruity nose. Attack on citrus like blood oranges with a hint of lemon.
The mouth is round, a little woody. Alcohol brings a strong presence of depth. The flavors are still on citrus but this time the chocolate tip behind alcohol.
The finish is long and powerful with notes of white chocolate and praline. the grassy side resurfaced providing a nice freshness to finish.

Altogether a very seductive whisky with a very fine balance between alcohol / flavor / texture.

Comment by Mars
Nose: Powerful, fruity (mango), wax, polish, port.
Palate: Beautiful balance, sweet, powerful, lime, spices.
Final: fruity (strawberry, lime), cinnamon, various spices.

Comments: Beautifully fruity but a little too much spices (especially in the final), which are increasingly present along the tasting.
Aeration and the addition of water does not add much.
A whisky to drink quickly.

Comment by Jean-Michel
White wine with salmony hues.
Nose: Fruits, but which one? White glue (the one used by school children). Almond milk. Scented moisturizing crème. A little alcohol whiffs despite the rather low ABV (around 43%?). Time brings the wood on the forefront. A nice wood actually: Some saw dust but not too many, some vanilla just enough. And a superb balance between the softness of a high end acacia honey and the sourness of Haribo’s little jelly crocodiles (the yellow ones!).
Mouth: Very consistent with the nose. Starts on the softness of the vanilla and the sourness of a lemon drop, before a slightly woody dryness becomes more assertive.
Finish: Drier, it ends on a slightly woody bitterness that one will find elegant or to loud depending on his taste.
Comment: The overall consistency makes me think of a malt of noble extraction, entertaining as an old Glenrothes could be. A cask strength tamed by the time spent in the barrel. Anyhow, I like it.

Comment by Blackmalt
Color: gold

Very sherry nose. it reminds me of 35 years Glenallachie TWE in fresher, younger. A good dose of honey flavor behind this magnificent that emerges is steady but volatile.
It's weird, but I find it hard to associate the color with aromas ... Like what :) Although further, the sherry aromas of ripe strawberries from the beginning, turn into strawberry ice cream (industrial, ice).
Rich, I found the smell of peanuts present on the sundae's of a unfortunately too well known fast food.
Some wood with these flavors and gives a very interesting nose. Although a slight lack of punch could disappoint.


Mouth fairly rough, woody, spicy (very peppery) and ... Very disappointing for me! Why such an austere palate with such a nose?
It will remain nervous and with a touch of bitterness. that's all. Finally ... Although ... Finally it is revealed?
Yes, it seems. It's greener, vegetal. Nearly menthol (I said nearly). Surprisingly with such a poor and such anaromatic weakness . And equally surprising with a nose more rounder and warmer, more sherry.
Very long finish with a very good return of just-picked raspberries that comes without warning ... And it is brought. Especially frankly it lasts a long time.


Comment: Not easy to note. I thought it had a very nice nose, very round and very rich. And, of course, I expected the same for the mouth ...
It really needs time to unfold. I was on the verge of not having anything in the sample anymore.
Finally, even if the mouth is radically different from the nose, it will still have fun!

WDTS2012-01
Color: White Wine
Nose: An explosion of exotic fruits in the first nose with, in addition, some pears (like "Poire Williams"). Very fruity at first but loses power after aeration. The alcohol is well integrated. It is now moving on cereal notes. A very pleasant nose.
Mouth: Another explosion of fruits, in the line of the nose. Alcohol is also well integrated. Again hints of cereals here and there.
Final: Average and equally fruity, as it might be expected.

A whisky fairly linear, but very fruity and quite pleasant to taste.

Color: gold
Nose: Mild woody notes of oak and vanilla, a little bit of old furniture but a lot of power and fullbodied, also dried fruits and caramel.
Taste: soft but full-flavoured, slightly drying notes of oak and raisins, full finish with light caramel and dried fruits ending with raisins and woody notes

Comment by Alexandre
The nose is marked by great sweetness, the yellow fruit (banana, lemon), honey and a little wood. Ample and warm, it also shows some peaks of hazelnut and citrus. Aeration puts greater emphasis on the yellow fruit, while traces of farm flavors are emerging, then salt and wood fire. All, however, lacks some precision.
The mouth begins on coffee and hazelnuts, before a little something very sweet and tart, reminiscent of cough syrup. Then, a nice fruity taste, marked by the green apple is shown before a finish of salt and chocolate. It is very soft and very heterogeneous. The set lacks a little power. With aeration, sweet flavors make more room.
The final medium length, is marked by the mineral and coffee. It was also a little Calvados and a slight fruitiness.

In conclusion, a good whisky, who is missing maybe a better integration of its many flavors.

Colour: gold.
Light nose, very light. Soft, very fruity. Yellow fruit that saw the sun. A few exotic fruits, honey. Nice set, very appetizing.
Mouth less sexy than the nose, sweet, still on the fruit. Lack of power.
Moderately long finish. Very intense. There are some fruits. A bit malty.
Very interesting profile but obvious lack of power.

Comment by Dede
Color: White Wine
Nose: Powerful and expressive on the fruit tart (pineapple in particular, just in between sugar and acidity) and coconut spiced with a dash of nutmeg or modeling clay for children Play-Doh. Exudes a nice sweetness and leaves even a glimpse of gourmand notes of milk chocolate. Yum!
Mouth: Less fruity expected, it develops a vegetal bitterness under control and still some nice fruit notes (yellow fruit, pineapple, grapefruit). This is not especially complex but well balanced with well integrated alcohol.
Finish: Medium length, on a slightly bitter green fruit very pleasant.

Conclusion: A very nice fruity malt, cheerful and bright. I like.

Comment by Canis_Lupus
Colour: Pale, white wine, straw.
Nose: first nose on the apple / pear acid, then progresses to the mint through a peppery note. The anise too. Very pastry, so as "financier" cake. Evokes some succulent plants. A little pine resin. Over time, becomes downright salty while retaining its vegetal freshness.
Water does not really change the nose but significantly increases the homogeneity, balance and blend.
Palate: aqueous, significantly different from the nose, rich fruit, almost heady, with a pungency classy giving an impression of "old."
Water has the same effect on the mouth than on the nose.
Final: In line with the mouth, medium length and power.
Water has the same effect as on the nose and mouth.

Comment: A nice whisky, pleasant, with personality. With or without water, it depends, both have their charm.

Comment by Amor57
The first nose is on the pear, the fruity and seems fairly simple, if not simplistic. Let us allow to aerate then. And it makes him the most good: fresh grass, peony, iris, violet. It is floral and very pleasant, delicate. Then develop fresh notes of lemon and peppermint, with an ounce of cinnamon and a hint of ozone. On the palate is soft, with spices (pepper) and dominated by exotic fruit bananas. Few notes of oregano, citrus and caramel received wages here and there. The finish is under the domination of mint with spice and liquorice hazelnut background.
Refined, it is a treat for the senses.

Comment by Piazzolla
Nose: very (too?) melted and gentle, fruity (peach), light honey / vanilla. Too much reduced?
Mouth: very nice, consistent with the nose with medicinal notes in addition! Lacks a little density, but we feel a certain complexity (fruits, flowers, spices, grains ....).
Medium final, quite in line with the mouth.
Conclusion Very nice, balanced, but ultimately a little frustrating lack of power / density. Mean age (about 15 years).

taste: medium intensity, well integrated alcohol, taste also on the line mineral, austere, acid, very "old style"
finish: medium
With water: The nose shows the same flavors and loses a little intensity, the taste is less balanced (more acidity), I prefer without water

Comment by Arno
Nose : early on strange sensations & synthetic : hydrocarbon fuel, burned products, wood glue. A little sweet almond brings all things to more consensual, candied fruits caramelized in the oven, with notes of banana flambe. A very acidic side making me thinking of lemon, vinegar but even the cheap wine... A frank necessary aeration found wood and tomato a little young (and acid), pastry and roasted notes, and the strange smells dissipate a bit, leaving a dubious impression on this nose.
An hour later, we capture the Granny Smith & mint.
Palate: on herbs and licorice, with salted caramel. Continuing with honey, spices, wood is very present (chip), then a round sherry with dried fruit & flowers and a hint of leather. The whole is homogeneous and delicious, much more than the nose!
Final: sherry (oloroso) with salt and a little sulfur, however long.
Conclusion: Nose scary, but knowing redeem himself largely with the mouth which is nice.

Comment by TTN
Color: straw yellow.
Nose: Very perfumed. I perceive almond and frangipane, custard. After aeration, it becomes more lemony and grassy.
Palate: On my first tasting, the mouth was hot and very herbaceous, very bitter also, to finish on a grapefruit juice. Curiously the second experiment gave me a more faithful to the nose malt, custard.
Overall impression: The second tasting helped me finally to reassess upwards this malt which had left me a mixed impression. Probably a Speyside!

Commentaire de Dagde
Colour: Pale Gold
Nose: Alcohol very present. Its fresh exotic preeminence (pineapple, pomegranate, coconut milk, lime) gives the acidity. There are also hints of polished wood. A nose not too flashy but that takes us in the tropics with great pleasure.
Palate: Alcohol is too far forward, very spicy - ginger, a hint of chilli - with a dominant barley. A bit dry overall.
Aeration brings moderate residues exotic - a bit of coconut, pineapple -. It also has more porridge. The whole is always overloaded with ethanolic impressions.
Final: Rather short on the spice and cereal. The palate is just off.

Conclusion: The nose of fresh fruit is traveling but the mouth has a little successful integration alcoholic because of spices giving a big boost too. The promises of sunny beaches are proving to be an escape rainy country. Inevitably, we come back disappointed ...

Colour: Straw
The nose has rather discreet hints of fruit, mild bitterness and hints of yeast. The nose is fresh and pleasant but without complexity or surprises.
The first impression in the mouth is very surprising. Some sweets mixed with nuts. This is very nice and very well done. This duality of tones gives it a nice complexity, while maintaining a nice balance.
The finish is in the same spirit as the mouth. A beautiful freshness and a nice contrast between the green fruit and nuts.

Taste: It is fat and pastry. Very light fruity (citrus, blackcurrant bud). With water, the mouth becomes almost oily.

Nose: quite complex- "sour and sherryish" the same time, mineral, kumquats, lemon-drop, hay, vodka-ish, fresh cut grass
With water: cereals, candied lemon, apples, iced-tea,

Palate: lime, rock-melon, bitter, strong alcohol
With water: much better, lemon drops, very sweet, pineapple, mineral, some herbs, wood

Finish: lime and strong alcohol - stays quite a time
With water: much more delicate, lime/lemon, a little bit of wood

Overall: Without water only the nose is good and the alcohol overwhelms. With water is a sweet and nice dram.

The nose is initially sweet, with a slight vanilla, hay strawberry jam, honey. This is somewhat discreet. Then come the dried grass, crushed raspberry, pear, yellow peach. It is delicate (understatement if not discreet) but pleasant. On the palate is sweet, and share on vanilla, yellow fruits, herbs. Also the nuts and light tannins which falls a little table. The flavors are very accurate. The final good length, is on the coffee vanilla, with fresh grass and some exotic fruit with coconut.
It is a balanced whisky, quite complex, but pleasant to taste demands attention.

Commentaire de Alexandre
The nose offers a beautiful blend of marine flavors (light peat, iodine) and tropical fruits (pineapple). And also almond powder. It is very well built, despite a slight discretion. Over time, the fruitiness takes more space. Water highlights peat.

The palate confirms the nose. At first yellow fruits and peat, then cold ashes and a hint of marine flavors. The peat is relatively strong, it is robust and even somewhat austere. The water makes the whole more wooded.

The final average length is about smoke and maritime flavors. We also have some traces of citrus.

In conclusion, a good marine whiskey / peaty, with fruity touches that give it originality.

Commentaire de Dekyriel
Colour: White wine

Nose: Starts on alcohol... then once gone, on cucumber, apricot and peach. This is a creamy one, with improbable hints of fresh tobacco leaves and, for some reason, meat.

Eventually opens up sweet, suave, on marzipan. Not too cloying though.

Mouth: Starts with an elegant salinity to it, hints of fine wine, fruity (orchard fruits, white or yellow), sweet rancio (pralines, sugar coated peanuts...), dates (those great deglet nour ones), salted butter caramel, milk chocolate.

Finish: Short and dry, on wild raspberries, sticks of licorice, touch of aniseed.

Comment: This is an oily whisky with a beautiful mouth. Seems fairly old altogether, I'd say 20 years or more, but then again, I might be wrong!

Commentaire de Arno
Nose: hints of PX sherry with plum / prune and sweet roundness. Alcohol seems powerful. We do not find a lot of different notes, woody / resinous, caramel, muesli, marzipan, apple turnover, which seem to revolve around the hogshead. Quite bitter minty notes that sometimes come back.
Palate: rather powerful sherry with dried fruit, candied fruit, grape confit, dry wood, spices ... The second part of mouth is quite powerful and heats the palate (pepper).
Finale: nuts, sweet
Conclusion: a clear sherry dram, relatively high alcohol, but slightly colored & suggesting something else: late finish? Refill sherry? The whole is very pleasant

Commentaire de Jbrice
Nose: Quite spirity initially on yeast , beer , cider , but with a flavor profile far from boring ... Mineral, lemon , vanilla , woody, spicy, salty . Malt may seem austere but not only that . Coastal as some say . Clearly reminds me of aromatic markers from a seafront Highland distillery and at north east of Scotland ... A vegetal appearance and brioche develops after aeration. On paper, it does not appear there but the nose is very classy I think. There is a certain purity . This seems to me to reflect a whisky that had a quality spirit as an ancestor rather than a hyper active cask.

Palate: The palate is concentrated , powerful, alive. Alcohol is well controlled. Sea side resort a lot. First some salt , the mineral and then the spices . It seems that this whisky is not diluted or little .

Finale: Pretty short unfortunately.

Comments: A special profile and whisky away from the consensus in my humble opinion . One likes or dislikes. I like . Especially the nose . The mouth is a little "rustic" by the nose and the final too short.

Nose : Sweet nose, candy floss, reminds me of strolling a fair. Butter biscuit, later a touch of cellar or old books. Alcohol a bit pungent at the second or third nosing but not too strong

Palate : Again sweet, creamy, very pleasant. Hints of malt or cereals in general. Alcohol very we'll integrated and at the right level, despite being a trifle sharp. Pineapple aroma

Finish : Long finish with a move towards the bitter end, but just at the right level. Getting dryer and dryer.
Yep,I think that's a whisky I would buy.

Nose: here some cereals with a little yeast and some sugar are very present
Palate: ok - unlike the nose I find Tea, some grassy notes, dry but strong, then a little fruitiness with green pepper raises and behind this - a little smokiness?

The finish is long with a fruity sweetness, a little yeast maybe. A good dram in my opinion.

Herbaceous and floral nose at first. Then alcohol overwhelmes and it is difficult to perceive the aromas which are like behind a wall.
It then evolves to the grain and hay.

Mouth with a too much drying alcohol. It remains on the grain and hay, and almond and hazelnut.

Final with an average length. Roasted hazelnut dominates which brings a certain sweetness in retro-olfaction.

This whisky is unbalanced because of the alcohol.

Commentaire de Jmputz
Colour: Straw
A fruity nose, even a little too much... Artificial fruit smells and some medicinal ether notes characterize the nose which is still very enticing at first contact.
The first mouth is less fruity, and some slightly acidic notes take over, before returning to the strange notes of sour candy. Some bitter notes of cashew nuts, complete the picture.
The finish is quite long and fresh, keeping these artificial fruit flavors and acidic which gives it a pretty cool.

Commentaire de Singlemalt71
Nose: Very sharp (alcohol) and clean with some sweetness tones (vanilla and fruit) at the background. It needs some more time to develop the spiciness and wood tones in it.

Taste: sweetness tones, some fruitiness, a bit sourness, but above all spicy and a lot of bitterness.

Finish: Rather long, very spicy with some bitterness at the end. This bitterness lingers very long.

Commentaire de Jeep
Nose: Clean, but not very expressive: rather mineral, some fruity notes (more on lemon tones), slightly vegetal / grassy. Becomes perhaps even more austere at aeration also with amazing notes of roasted peanuts.
Taste: Quite bitter, apricot kernel, it is equally austere and mineral as the nose, some "eau-de-vie"aspects are also very present.
Finish: Long, slightly fruity bitterness but mostly not unpleasant.
Conclusion: Not the kind of whisky that I like, but a power that is pretty well controlled, well balanced. Clynelish? Inchgower?

Commentaire de Loic43
Nose: a little smoke, plant, fairly expressive (high alcohol?), Mineral, ripe pear, plum, some citrus, vanilla, caramel.
Adding water brings a pastry side and some floral notes.

Palate: Dry, some fruit. Water brings out dried fruit.

Finish: short, small but nice.

Comment: simple and balanced, without flaws, but not exciting.

Commentaire de Peb
Color: light straw

Nose: fruity, light acidity, notes of apricot, ammonia, solvents, some ashes, cereals.

Taste: quite light, we find that solvent again. Alcohol taste is quite spicy and not very well integrated. Notes of fruit and almond. Vanilla, lots of pepper, touch of salt. A second sip, a sweet spring side.

Finish: rather short. The bitterness spring. Some note of wood spring out and increase.

Comment: this is not bad, but it is sorely lacking in balance. The trio solvent nose / poorly integrated / woodland which increases alcohol is not too much for my taste.

Commentaire de Jean-Michel
Colour: Pale gold.
Nose: Starts quite youngish and green. Industrial candied fruits. Gets more interesting and sweeter given time. Buttery. Brioche flavoured with orange blossom water. The sweetness of a little candy pole?
Mouth: Starts candied and honeyed. Warmer than expected too (51% ?). Turns grassier then, with a mezcaly bitterness.
Finish: Long and dry, with a slightly astringent and bitter aftertaste, and a hint of burnt wood.
Comment: This grassy bitterness disturbs me I must say. But if you’re fond of Tequila, you may appreciate this one.

Commentaire de Flonews
color: white wine

nose: a little green but an interesting roundness. A little gingerbread. Madeira finish?
mouth, the attack is frank about some bitterness. Development has been mastered bybut lacks greed compared to the nose. With a touch of water, the mouth is sweeter but still can not become greedy. A wave of young alcohol gene other flavors but calmed down with aeration. Notes of dark chocolate arriving late.

Final: Short and fleeting.

Commentaire de Mathieutaz13
White wine color (pale yellow)

nose:
Rather vegetal on dry hay and cereal then develops a nose like quiche before baking (a mixture of cream and spicy egg) may be some marine side on the background?
A lot of alcohol (solvent odor quite pronounced)
This is quite young and little marked by wood.

palate:
Unbalanced, poorly integrated alcohol: Attack on bright citrus with lots of alcohol and lots of spices and a metal rear mouth (like when using a tatar).
Pretty sickening final this duo bitterness /metal note .

Conclusion:
If the nose was already not my cup tea mouth is even worse ... the end of the sample will go down the drain!

Color: Gold
The nose is particularly quiet in the beginning and then slowly evolves into softly malted but not aggressive either unadorned notes. A distant hint of violet appears after a few minutes of aeration.
On the palate the first impression is of a malted whisky, but soon surprising and pleasant bitter notes appear . An impression of gentian which tends to disappear after a few moments to give way to the sweetness of vanilla and malt. A unusual mouth, surprising and enjoyable.
The finish is a continuation of the mouth. A hint of hazelnut are also up to the more balanced malty sweetness that characterizes this whisky from the beginning
Another very pleasant surprise.
