2006 North Star Macduff 11 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$160.00 Bottle
  • ABV 55.2%

A toddler by Speyside standards, having been founded in 1958, purchased by Bacardi and now owned by Dewars, Macduff rarely makes it to market as an official distillery bottling. Around 10% of the malt whisky produced is released as a single malt (usually under the Glen Deveron label), the remainder forming a major component in the Dewar’s and William Lawson blends. As a single malt, Macduff is most commonly found as a 10 year old with the house style tending towards fruity, sherry sweetness. This one's from a Bourbon hogshead. Non chill filtered. 240 bottles produced.

Other reviews... Colour: light gold. Nose: some creamy, modern vanilla, custard made with marsala wine, a little pine sap, some coconut milk and a few green and orchard fruits such as ripe green apples, bananas, pears etc... very nice, if a little simplistic perhaps. Although, over time the fruitiness does intensify in a pleasing fashion. With water: not a huge change, still nicely fruity, a touch of creme caramel perhaps. And a tad more spicy. Mouth: spiced custard this time. Muesli, some freshly chopped herbs, slightly more tart fruit notes such as cider apple and gooseberry. A touch of mead perhaps. With water: more syrupy and gloopy in texture which I like. Some spiced plum cake drizzled with golden syrup and hints of nutmeg, hot cross buns and toasted sunflower seeds. Finish: good length, slightly earthy and leafy, nicely lemony, raw malt, cereals and wee bready notes. Comments: All very good, clean, fruity young malt whisky. A little boring perhaps but beyond that it’s tough to find flaws. 55.2% Alc./Vol.
