Macduff 2000 (Whiskyman & Pin’Art)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Macduff

Macduff 2000 is something we’ve seen from several bottlers (most of them pretty good), and now there’s one in the “classic label” series by The Whiskyman. It was selected by our local whisky store Pin’Art.

 

Macduff 2000 - Whiskyman & PinartMacduff 12 yo 2000 (51,7%, The Whiskyman & Pin’Art, refill sherry hogshead)

Nose: nicely fruity and youthful sherry. Lots of oranges, cooked apples, figs, a little walnut liqueur and fudge. A few flinty notes as well. Some leather. Cinnamon. Mouth: sweet and quite fruity again. Very raisiny, with figs and oranges again. Fruitcake and berries. Powerful and graceful at the same time. Evolves on chocolate notes, nuts and spices (pepper, ginger). Hints of coffee. Smoother and fruitier with a drop of water. Finish: long, still quite sweet with berries and plenty of drier spices now.

Another warm, juicy and spicy Macduff. A good daily sherry bottling, similar to the ones we’ve seen before. Buy it now and save it until the winter returns. Available for € 55 from Pin’Art in Mechelen.

Score: 87/100
