Macduff, Single Old Particular, Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 21 years old, Highland, Scotland, 41.9% abv.

macduffThis is from a distillery located in Speyside that was founded in 1948 and is currently owned by Bacardi but managed by John Dewar & Sons.

The Macduff 21 year old (‘glorious years’, according to the distillery) is a single cask whisky and this is one of only 252 bottles from the cask. There is even a reference number for the cask on the bottle – #DL9905.  The distillation and bottling dates are also available – April 1992 and August 2013.

There is no chill filtration used and no caramel colouring to create its pale amber tone.  The nose on the Macduff 21 carries orange oil, honey, dried apricot, freshly sawn wood and the right amount of smokey peat to make it interesting.

The palate is lightly medicinal showing liniment and more dried fruit, honey comb and toast.  Warming and smooth with a light kick and tasty finish.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

WSET Very Good spirit.  Well played, Andy – well played.
