1995 Miltonduff 18 Year Old K&L Exclusive Signatory Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1142682

Miltonduff was all over our trip this year, whether in its normal single malt form or under the name Mosstowie, referring to a separate whisky made on site using a Lomand still. While we skipped the Mosstowie (those Lomond stills are hard to work with no doubt) we could not pass up the opportunity to buy delicious, cask strength, 18-year-old whisky for this price. Miltonduff might be familiar to some as it is the key ingredient in the famous Ballantine's blend. It is this particular whisky that makes me believe the Ballantine's 17-year could actually be rated as Jim Murray believes it should be. Altogether more typically a Highlander than Speyside (if these regional descriptions mean anything to anybody any longer), it's a powerhouse. Phenolic and earthy, there's this sort of flinty aroma, it's not sulfur, but more struck flint on iron. Sparks! There's some herbal extract (Indian ginseng), floral remedies (crushed flowers) and an oily texture. If someone were using heavy machinery (like a license plate printing press) nearby while you were nosing this whisky you probably wouldn't notice. An intense, powerful and unusual whisky that makes you pause for a moment before filling your glass again. And you will fill it again. (David Othenin-Girard)

I. LOVE. THIS. MALT! Just delicious! Looking at it in the glass you might think that this is whimpy whisky. But take a little sip and you will soon see that this baby is packed with wonderousness. So much going on. Smokey, floral notes on the nose and then POW... browned butter, caramel, dark earthy things, lively sweet things and a great rocky minerality on the oily finish. The Davids have done it again. Hide my credit cards because this one is dangerous.

While this producer was heretefore been unknown to me, this bottling is a wonderful introduction. Tamping down the heat a bit with a splash of water, you meet a rich, supple, round whisky with loads of flavor centered on toasted grain-malt, bright dried fruits, and rock. The finish brings with it a bit of caramel, but this is livelier than it is sweet; not at all one of those sherry-intensive bottlings. I'd wager this would probably be the crowd pleasing-est of the Signatory bottlings we just received.

I can't believe the price on this bottle. If you're a fan of highland single malt, this is the bottle for you! Fresh, rich, malty and delicious with vanilla and light floral notes on a long, lush finish- the age is perfect on this one and so is the cost!
Drink from 2013 to 3013
