Macduff 19 yo (1997/2017), The Single Cask, 53,5%

Review #635
A single cask from “The Single Cask”. It is from a Bourbon barrel with the cask number 5278 and only 273 bottles were made. Fresh white fruits in the smell. Honey, vanilla and marzipan with hints of malted barley and hay.

Alcohol, oak and peppery notes at first in the taste. After the alcohol calms down, honey thickness comes forward. Sweet fruits and nuts. The finish is still full of spices and mixes beautifully with the sweetness.

A classic Bourbon matured Macduff. Perhaps a bit more spicy than usual… It reminds me of whisky from the good old days. The ABV is high and the whisky feisty, so don´t be afraid to play around with some water. I will give this 86/100 (21/22/22/21).
