Miltonduff 8 yo (2006/2015), Krügers No. 15, 64,8%

Review #778
This is from Krügers “Schloss Whisky”, and is number 15 in the series, matured in a Sherry cask. Heavy Sherry notes at first in the smell. Dried apricots, figs and dark chocolate. Raisins as well, and the list could continue! All in great harmony.

What a kick in the taste! Heavy Sherry notes again, but accompanied by aggressive alcohol. All kind of dried fruits you can think of! Some vanilla mixes with sweet raisins in the finish, which is looong. You will find some oak here as well.

This just shows that a Sherry bomb doesn’t have to be old, as long as it is a quality cask. The alcohol is a bit much, but after a couple of sips, it starts to open up. Else, you can easily give it some (or lot of) water – even though I find the flavours better without. Water can open up for a little bitter oak and soapy notes. I will give this 91/100 (23/22/23/23).
