Miltonduff 30 yo 1980
(46%, Mo Òr Collection 2010, bourbon hogshead #12431, 321 btl.)
Nose: complex nose. Starts on fruits (apple, banana) and light honey / chocolate, evolves on freshly cut timber and some floral notes. A few spicy and dusty notes. Over time it becomes a little narrower with plain barley. Mouth: fruity (oranges, apples) and spicy (first sweet vanilla, then slightly punchier pepper). The sweetness slowly evolves to soft bitterness (grapefruit, ginger) with hints of grassy sourness and liquorice root. Finish: medium long, lemony / gingery with drying oak.
Again a very interesting Miltonduff. Consistent quality compared to the other casks. More expensive though, as often with this collection aimed at collectors, hotels and restaurants. Around € 145 (50 cl bottle).
