Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré vif.
  • Nose : équilibré, onctueux. Des agrumes (citron, pamplemousse) côtoient du baume du tigre et du foin coupé. Simultanément, des fruits gorgés de sucres (poire, pomme) explosent littéralement avant qu’une note de réglisse ne vienne les enrober avec beaucoup de naturel. Au fur et à mesure, l’orge maltée est transcendée par une pointe de fumée.
  • Palate : gourmande, onctueuse. Le miel d’acacia, le lys, le gingembre frais, la poire, le cumin, la noix verte, le chêne, le marron glacé, toutes ces notes forment un camaïeu où alternent tons chauds et tons frais. Particulièrement nuancée, elle fait preuve d’une grande complexité. L’orge se décline sous tous ses aspects : plein champ, en
  • Overall : longue, douce. Elle se veut printanière, florale (rose ancienne, muguet), herbacée et mentholée. A sa manière, presque sans l’air d’y toucher, ce Miltonduff impose ses sautes d’humeur olfactives et gustatives comme en témoigne cette note de tourbe fugitive qui prend la poudre d’escampette.
The brand


This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

The partnership between La Maison du Whisky and this malt specialist goes back to the early seventies. Initially La Maison du Whisky sold Gordon & MacPhail’s great classics. In the 1990s LDMW established its own cellars and launched a new collection called simply ‘Single Cask’. Every single malt in this range undergoes a rigorous selection process from a large number of samples. As its name suggests, Single Cask consists exclusively of single malts from a single cask that has been bottled without chill filtering. It is thus a separate range in its own right, and is presented in a special bottle selected by La Maison du Whisky with a label adapted from an existing Gordon & MacPhail model.
