Miltonduff 1999 (Single Malts of Scotland)

The Exchange had a live QA on Facebook the other day, and someone asked their ambassador Billy Abbott what his favourite whisky of the moment was.

He suggested this Miltonduff 1999 in the Malts of Scotland series, so I got curious and had to have a look.

 

 

Miltonduff 1999 - Single Malts of ScotlandMiltonduff 1999 - Single Malts of ScotlandMiltonduff 20 yo 1999 (52,2%, Single Malts of Scotland 2019, bourbon hogshead #5014, 236 btl.)

: a youtful profile with bright fruits (juicy pears, peach, orange candy) and subtle floral / herbal notes. Touches of bananas. Sweet barley. Vanilla biscuits. A wee hint of bubble gum in the background. Enjoyable. Mouth: creamy, with sweet yellow fruits (bananas, peaches, greengages), later also grapefruit and lemon zest. Growing hints of imoncello. Sunflower oil. Some green and bitter notes too. Almost a hoppy even. : medium, zesty, with green tea, cereal notes and a bit of mint.

Quite a light, youngish profile on the nose, and a slightly austere Lowlands style on the palate. Really -driven, not often seen these days but maybe not totally my style. Not available any more, but a sister cask was bottled as a 20th Anniversary bottling.

Score: 84/100
