Douglas Laing Miltonduff Tasting Notes

Posted: February 27, 2017 in Mitonduff, Scotch Whisky H-Z

Douglas Laing Old Particular Miltonduff 1995 (21 year old) 51.5%

Refill Bourbon Barrel/ Code: OLD0387/ DL11537

Dist: Feb 1995 Btl: Nov 2016/ Tasted: Jan 2017

Heathery and honeyed aromas with some gorgeously sawdusty vanilla oak. It becomes quite creamy with polished barley, white chocolate and subtle, sweet spice notes.

The palate is heathery and honeyed with crisp barley, straw, spice and a touch less oak. The oak starts to come through on the middle with some gentle coffee’d tannins, milk chocolate and lightly oxidised fruit. Fabulously polished and long with violets, Alsace-esque smoky white fruit, sweet vanilla a dusty oak.
