Tasting notes
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Very floral and elegant, lemon tea, then some darker, more smoky aromas emerging.
Palate: Lively, vanilla, ice cream soda, honey.
Finish: Agreeably citric, surprisingly zestful. Dries out more when reduced - the only real hint at its age.
Comment: With some Dufftowns you are glad when you've had enough. This is a well-made example which has been matched by very good bourbon wood.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Nutty (brazil, cob) but rounded with dry oak, vanilla/coconut and mint. Fresh apple juice/cider, stewed fruits. Mature. Fading a little. A dusty edge.
Palate: Putty drying to maltiness. Light nut oil feel. Crisp and light with decent balance.
Finish: Dry and oaky.
Comment: Interesting, but without the overriding character to make it great.
