A youngster from the Miltonduff distillery
The first thought that strikes my mind is a caramel tone and then a bit of a candy bag. The reference that follows is that it now feels somewhat spirity, almost as a defiant teenager. There are some vanilla and a little spicy scent that I can not quite put my finger on. After a while Im thinking black currant juice.
Wow this is a pretty big blow to the tastebuds, a lot of flavors for only 7 years of maturation. The caramel is listed as a clear reference and also vanilla. The taste reminds me also of the age where it almost as quickly turns into that little tasteless feeling and spirity character. A bit like when a chewing gum after a while loses its flavor. The flavors are in there in the beginning but they are released pretty quickly in a rather dull way and it falls rather flat.
Fairly short and blank. There's a lot more to be desired here.
Miltonduff is an exciting distillery that can offer a wide diversity. It is my first time trying out a rather young whiskey from this distillery and I must say that it does not really suit me. This is absolutely not a bad whisky, there is a clear mark of quality, but unfortunately, I experienced it as a bit unfinished.
