Miltonduff 24yo from Dun Bheagan

Miltonduff 24yo 55% Dun Bheagan
Cask 30071+30072

Nose : Slight tropical fruits, overpowered with a delicate vanilla wood spice

Palate : lots of spicy woods and tannins less creamy vanilla and white pepper and more tannins, still on the delicate side

Finish : long

Comment : Marvelous Dram. Classic well aged dram with a flavour profile getting rarer for some reason. More wood, not woody, and the fruit is well buried in this one

Rating 88

Dun Bheagan is Gaellic and is pronounced Dunvegan (which is also an alternative spelling). It's the name of a castle on Skye, which is the seat of the head of the Clan MacLeod. Dun Bheagan is an independent bottling brand by Ian MacLeod Distillers Limited, so the connection is obvious. Ian MacLeod has purchased both Glengoyne and Tamdhu Distilleries so they are one of the independent bottlers who have purchased a distillery in the last decade
