Miltonduff 2007 G&M Cask Strength Review

Hi everyone,

Straight after one big, dark Sherry cask and into another. Also another brand new release. Also from an independent bottler. This time from the master of casks themselves, Gordon & Macphail. Lots of new stuff coming from them shortly, I’m reliably informed.
Miltonduff 2007 G&M Cask Strength 61.6%
Colour: Dark Amber
Body: Full
Nose: Ethereal and meaty, dark chocolate and tobacco, leather, vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce, a nice touch of gun smoke, cigar, slightly herbal.
Water: Marzipan and almond, opens up nicely.
Taste: Big but ethereal, sweet then more and more dry, black cherry, orange, oily chocolate and black pepper spice, a little chilli, dry tobacco and leather.
Water: Softer and less spicy.
Finish: Long length. Chilli chocolate, dark Sherry, some orange peel.
A brand new release in early 2018. Another great Sherry cask.

Distillery: Miltonduff
Average Score: 70.3
Distillery Ranking: 50th/ 62 places
Up/Down: 58> 50 (Up 8)

Thanks for reading!
