Liquid Treasures has a new Miltonduff 1995 that has just arrived in store.
Miltonduff 22 yo 1995 (56,1%, Liquid Treasures 2017, bourbon hogshead)
Nose: very barleyish start, with green apples, pears, some grassy notes. Fresh herbal touches. Porridge. There’s also a mint / menthol theme. A pretty simple dram with textbook bourbon maturation.
Mouth: maybe a little hot, with some beer-like notes, citrus fruits and a minty oakiness. Nicer with water, there’s a light hoppy side to it, and you get some mocha notes towards the end. Whiffs of pepper and light waxy notes.
Finish: medium length, same fruits, green tea and aromatic oak.
Some active oak at play here, otherwise a natural, honest whisky which seems a little younger than it actually is. Around € 115 from eSpirits.
By the way, I don’t think it makes sense to review it (again) but Liquid Treasures currently also offers an excellent undisclosed Speyside 1973 whisky (46,5%), a cask that was shared with Archives this summer. Same score: 92/100
