Miltonduff, Gordon & Macphail, 1988, 53.1%Miltonduff
A beautiful 30 year old bottling from Miltonduff, a Speyside gem which is not commonly found as a single malt.
This release by independent bottler Gordon & Macphail was distilled 1988, and aged in a refill bourbon barrel for three decades. This allows the spirit character to really shine, with gentle influence of American Oak. Orchard fruits, floral honey and a little citrus zest are the dominant notes in this subtly complex whisky. The finish is long and waxy with a little black pepper and sweet malt.
Only 110 bottles were released in 2019 at natural cask strength (53.1%).
