Tasting Notes by tjb

Macduff distillery was established in the early 1960's by a consortium of Glasgow based whisky brokers and businessmen. The official bottling’s are branded as “Glen Deveron”.

This particular expression from Macduff Distillery was matured in Refill sherry hogsheads. Distilled 2000, bottled 2013. Golden straw in colour this is NCF.

The nose is sweet peach and pear with vanilla. Slight hint of rubber and toasted nuts. The palate has a hint of sherry, sweet vanilla, apples, peppered oak bite (not bitter) with barley present throughout.

The finish is medium and has a spiced and slightly drying note. Very drinkable and good value, really well made.
