Miltonduff 1998 (Carn Mor c.11-year-old)

Bought – C Gar Ltd, 22nd October 2013

None but listed on Whiskybase here.

This Miltonduff is part of the 24 x 20cl bottles that make up the Carn Mor Vintage Collection. Distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2009, it’s from a limited edition of 1224, Cask No: 3620.

As per usual with the Carn Mor collection I’ve not been able to find any specific bottle reviews. That said, of the 11 bottles of Miltonduff reviewed in the Whisky Bible 2013, the lowest scores 82/100 and the highest 96/100. The average score is in the high 80s. That’s not to say the version I have is similarly good but at 46%, non-chill filtered and no added colour, it has the building blocks of a good malt.

Miltonduff is a Speyside distillery dating back to 1824 when it was made legal. Prior to that it was believed to be one of the many illicit stills in the area. The main blend the Miltonduff whisky lends itself to is Ballantines.
