Milton-duff Glenlivet 12 years

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Miltonduff

This Miltonduff 12yo was bottled in the 1970’s by George Ballentine’s. At that time, the distillery was owned by Hiram Walker Gooderham & Worts, but distribution and administration was handled by Ballentine’s.

Milton-duff Glenlivet 12yoMiltonduff is still a major component of the Ballentine’s blend.

 

Milton-duff Glenlivet 12 yo (43%, OB, Ballentine’s, 75cl)

Nose: very fresh and playful, with a summery fruit salad and some mint. Buttercups. Orange juice. Sugared corn flakes in the background. Quite attractive. Mouth: rather grainy, cereals with sugar again. Very neutral and a little weak, with a slight alcohol tang. Herbal tea. Finish: medium length,

The nose is nice enough. The palate not so much. Very simple old-style whisky. Reminds of young Glen Grant bottlings from the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Score: 75/100
