Macduff 11 Year Old Tasting Notes

Tasting notes by Jim McEwan MBE

Colour: Vibrant ruby gold.

Nose: Waves of raisins, fresh figs and caramel, followed up with creamy marzipan, beeswax and old-school furniture polish. The merest hint of freshly picked strawberries on a crisp Summer’s morning. With water, there is lashings of iced Camp Coffee, with more fruity raisins, figs and beeswax polish.

Palate: Extremely round and mouth-filling, bursting with more fruit from the rich Pedro Ximénez-soaked oak staves. Plums, blackcurrants, black cherries and strawberries compete for dominance in this swirling maelstrom of rich dark chocolate and heather honey. With water a Pina Colada rears it’s head from the cacophony of the fruit purée and is joined by a spike of sweet lemon and Soor Plooms.

So often destined for blend, the art of the Distiller and Cooper have come together to showcase this often overlooked Highland Single Malt.
