Miltonduff 23 years

Distillery: Miltonduff (bottled by The Old Malt Cask)
Cask Type: Refill Barrel
Cask Number: HL15138
Region: Speyside
Age: 23 years
ABV: 50%
Nose: Big blast of tropical fruit, honeycomb, underripe bananas.
Palate: Notes that make me think of fruit flan that quickly give way to woody notes (especially oak) and spices.
Finish: As it finishes, this whisky really turns up the volume on the richer wood notes which then turn bitter and a bit burnt. An oaky spice is what remains as it coats my tongue and fades away.
Overall: An exquisitely layered whisky! This one is so interesting with how it leads you one way with the nose and then leaps in a different direction with big woody notes. A few drops of water amped up the wood-iness and I prefer it as bottled.
