Macduff 10 Years (Boutique-y Whisky)

I found a sample of this Macduff 10 Years in a whisky advent calender from Master of Malt. A rather humble distillery – its most enjoyable production was matured in sherry casks, I would say.



Macduff 10 Years - That Boutique-y Whisky CoMacduff 10 yo (50,2%, That Boutique-y Whisky Company 2019, 1160 btl.)

Nose: very mashy, with soaked cereals, hints of ale, porridge and crème caramel. Some apples and vanilla. Toasted bread. Light nutty notes. Not very exciting.

Mouth: again very whisky-like whisky, if you know what I mean. Grains, muesli, barley sugars. Now with more pronounced baked apples, some oranges and raisins. A honeyed note. White pepper, quite a lot of it. Growing Mexican chocolate towards the end.

Finish: medium, on oak spice and herbal tea. Always with lots of grains at its core.

Nod bad whisky per se, just a little raw and uninspired. Available from Master of Malt, but they have plenty of better options. My humble opinion as always.

Score: 76/100
