Tasting Notes

If you're tired of the same sweet vanilla and soft stonefruit profile of your typical Highland malt, I invite you to check out this 22 year old single barrel release from Miltonduff: a Speyside distillery that sees most of its malt go into the Chivas Blended portfolio. At 57.6% ABV cask strength and with a malty, gristy note, this is a robust and heavy whisky that very much tastes like malted barley smells, but with added notes of dark chocolate and cacao that carries over from the malting process. Intermixed with the malt and mocha notes are hints of toasted nuts and new oak with a classic Scotch whisky finish that is again accentuated from the huge proof. Mixed nuts and roasted cocoa flavors are the calling card of Miltonduff and this 22 year old cask offers both of those profiles with a bold and assertive character. It's definitely not your typical gentle, graceful Highland malt. This is big time stuff.

    This is a complex and structured single malt. It comes across on the dry side with concentrated round and mouth filling flavors. There is a beautiful nose of beeswax and honey and a nice long fresh fruit finish. This single malt is both interesting and tasty.

    For those who like a classic, old school, no frills Highland style, this is perhaps the best value in the store. Full of aromas and flavors of hulled grains, there are also nicely integrated bass tones of dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans. A delicious and satisfying dram if you don't need tons of smoke or Sherry, but rather are up for a fine, textbook single malt.

    Everyone seems to be pretty thrilled with our 20+ year old, cask strength, single barrel, Highland malt whiskies thus far, so I'm not slowing down anytime soon. As long as I keep tasting great stuff like this for well under $100, I'll keep snagging them for our whisky-loving customers. Unlike say the Tamdhu we featured previously, this Miltonduff is far more gritty in its maltiness. We say "gristy" because it tastes like the grist smells when it's being cooked at the distillery. It's a sweet grainy note that has roasted flavors of cacao and dark chocolate that come through clearly in the whisky. This is a hearty whisky, made for the cold winter weather when something bold and assertive is needed to cut down the chill from outside. Again, for a single malt this old and at this proof, the price is a no brainer.
