The Duncan Taylor Single is a series of single malts of at least 30 years or from distilleries that are no longer operational – or both. There are only 53 bottles of this 30 Year Old Miltonduff! I discovered it at a local festival.

The nose is very aromatic and fruity. Very fruity, in fact. Peach, young apples, pineapple and some unripe banana. Very pleasant surprise. Soft garden herbs, a leaf of mint, some coconut. Vanilla and something floral in the background. Loads of honey making it very sweet. The nose is very soft, but so accessible and inviting.

The arrival is sweet, oily and feisty. Vanilla and honey come first, joined by some pepper and ginger. Then the fruit kicks in, immediately upholstered with some citrusy notes. Grapefruit is the lead without a doubt. The oak rears its head as well, without turning it bitter.

The finish is fairly long and spicy and dies a surprisingly salty death. I did not see that salt at the end coming.

Very fruity Miltonduff with a salty twist at the end. A bottle will set you back over 400 EUR, though, which is simply way to much.
