Back in 2018, Gordon & Macphail launched a new series to go along with its "Connoisseurs Choice" range as well as a couple of lesser-known ranges. This new range is based on "bold flavour profiles" and is divided into three categories: "Sherry", "Smoky", and "Bourbon". Currently there are six malts (all with age statements and all chosen from Gordon & Macphail's extensive portfolio) which are placed into one of these three categories. The 10-Year-Old Miltonduff reviewed below belongs in the "Sherry" category.

Bottled December 10, 2019

Color: Deep Amber

Nose: Sherry and roasted nuts. Compote of dark fruit (prunes and raisins), orange zest and polished leather. Some sulfur creeps in now and then. Although not a very complicated nose, it is quite enjoyable.

Palate: Medium body with nice soft delivery. The sherried fruit (now apples, cranberries and dates) become pronounced until mid-palate when spice and oak make their appearance. Dark chocolate late with some surprising saltiness. Chewy.

Finish: Quite long with the sherry influence dominant.

Notes: Not exactly a "sherry bomb" but there is enough wine influence to make lovers of sherried malt happy.
