Scotch and Other Whiskies > Single Malt > Miltonduff
Exclusive to KWM. This 10 year old Miltonduff is part of Gordon & Macphail's Distillery Label series. It is exclusive to KWM in Calgary, and our Day 8 whisky, in the 2016 Whisky Advent Calendar. It is the closest thing to an official bottling of Miltonduff ever to come to Canada.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: soft malt and orange Starburts hit first before soft leather and figs in honey emerge; milk chocolate and Caramilk bars; candy apple and white chocolate infused with cocoa nibs.
Palate: big, round and bold; there is a surge of malt followed by a wave of caramel with a leather squeegee to clean things up; dark fruits: more figs in honey with raisins and prunes; floral and grassy with some faint coppery tones; the apple notes are still there with a touch of honey dew melon and fading orange.
Finish: medium-light and mid length with honey and more soft fruits fading out before the barley which goes all the way!
Comment: most of the Miltonduffs I've loved have been much older, this one has stirrings of those old malts, and at 80 bucks is a pretty good buy!
About G&M Distillery Labels: "In partnership with each respective distillery, all whiskies in our 'Distillery Labels' range are uniquely labelled. In years gone by many of these unique designs were used 'officially' to bottle the whisky under license from the distillery. Today these trusted relationships with distillers enables Gordon & MacPhail to bottle whiskies at various ages, strengths and vintages - all with their unique distillery label."
About Miltonduff (Courtesy Gordon Macphail): "Situated six miles southwest of Elgin is Pluscarden Abbey. Initially a Priory, it was founded by King Alexander II in 1230. Miltonduff is said to be situated on the site of the Abbey's meal mill, two miles from the Abbey. A stone from the original Abbey is retained at the distillery. As well as the distillery, the site is home to laboratories, engineering support, centralised warehousing management and the Malt Distilleries Technical Centre which provides technical and business backup to the other Chivas Brother distilleries.From 1967 to 1981, Miltonduff also produced a Single Malt called Mosstowie, using a 'Lomond Still'. Miltonduff is a key component of Ballantines blend."
