1989 Gordon & Macphail Connoisseurs Choice Miltonduff 31 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Purchased in 2005, Miltonduff is another distillery in Pernod Ricard's growing portfolio. Located seven kilometres south west of Elgin in barley-growing country, known as 'Pluscarden'. The style tends towards a fresh, citrusy distillate that goes into the Ballantine's blends. As virtually no official bottlings are released, anything from independents is welcome, especially when they carry a serious age statement. This is one of the oldest to ever land on our shores, surpassed only by the odd Adelphi. Matured in a single refill sherry hogshead, cask #10224 promises aromas and flavours of stewed fruits, cloves, clementine zest as well as baked apples, dates and orange marmalade. Exactly 200 bottles are available worldwide with a handful imported into Australia. 52.9% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
