Miltonduff 2008 12 Year Old Sherry Finished (Blackadder)

Following the Blackadder Benrinnes review here’s another Blackadder whisky review.

We’re staying in the Speyside region and check out a whisky from Miltonduff Distillery. This whisky was distilled back in 05.03.2008, was filled into a bourbon cask and then was finished in a Sherry hogshead before being bottled last September.

This Hogshead (#1001) yielded 287 bottles at 58.2%

Nose: Clean and fresh nose, dried red berries with mainly raspberries and strawberries, berries marmalade, then the bourbon cask comes to play: intense, and honey (reminds me the Benrinnes reviewed yesterday). The sherry cask then replies back with dark chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Palate: Intense delivery, honey, all spice, white pepper. Then dried red fruit, chocolate and a bowl of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Dark chocolate, extra dose of honey and pepper.

Finish: Long finish, intense with peppery edge, milk and dark chocolates, honey, red berries and blackberry.

Thoughts: Highly drinkable despite the intensity. Clean and fresh with good balance between the sherry finish and the bourbon cask. A very good sipper.
