'69 Miltonduff

Miltonduff does not show up on its own often. This 1969 is a very special dram that was one of the top scorers in Scottish Fields Magazine Competition last year. Very similar to the most excellent Strathisla 30. Choclate, wine, sherry... spectacular. 

Nose -Sherry and dried fruit notes - Christmas cake. A delicate bees wax edge lingers and a defined sweetness. First taste - Heavy sherry notes, with a touch of wood influences. Warming and mouth watering. Add a bit of water and reminiscent of a Sherried Christmas cake. A strong vanilla edge, with a treacle and stewed fruits. The taste is mouth warming with sherry sweetness. An influence of charred wood and ash is also present.
