MILTONDUFF 9 ans 2009 43%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 56699
Famed for its robust and oily character, the single malt produced by Miltonduff is used in large part in the composition of Ballantine’s famous blended scotch. From 1964 to 1981, the distillery was equipped with two Lomond stills for the production of a very rare second single malt, Mosstowie. Particularly complex and rich, note after note this bottling passionately performs an aromatic and gustatory score that wonderfully reproduces Miltonduff’s sweet maltiness and fruitiness. Additionally, with extraordinary force of character, it charmingly asserts its very original and hot personality as the tasting goes on.
the unctuous initial nose is vanilla and fruity (pear). Allowed to breathe, it becomes exotic (banana, passion fruit) medicinal and spicy (black pepper). The powerful attack is then medicinal (ointment), honeyed and fruity. The mid-palate is both chocolatey and malty. The rich, well-balanced finish evokes an apple tart. The end of the palate is characterized by notes of tobacco and spice (nutmeg). On the retro-nasal olfaction, black fruits (bramble) guide the tasting towards new lands.

- Appearance : vibrant gold.
- Nose : rich and unctuous. The beautiful vanilla first nose is also extremely fruity (pear, apple). Allowed to breathe, it becomes exotic (banana, passion fruit) medicinal (ointment) and spicy (Cayenne pepper, black pepper). Note that this increase in power takes place very naturally. With time, aromatic plants (rosemary, verbena) appear alongside sublime fragrances of honeysuckle and spearmint.
- Palate : powerful, assertive. The attack focuses first on medicinal notes (mustard poultice, ointment). Gradually, acacia honey and William’s pear then bring more sweetness and juice to the particularly slender mid-palate. The deliciously cocoa end of the palate also allows notes of malted barley and porridge to break through. At the same time, at the top of the palate, a variety of ointments feed the flavour palette’s medicinal character.
- Overall : long, well-balanced. The very rich (vanilla flan, apple tart) start of the finish is also herbaceous (cut hay, flax) and floral (lavender). Tobacco and spices (clove, nutmeg) then erupt onto the very end of the palate. On the retro-nasal olfaction, very ripe banana and black fruits (blackcurrant, bramble) make for an elixir of youth that directs the tasting towards new lands. The empty glass is intensely floral (rose, carnation, peony), honeyed (lime blossom) and mentholated.
- The brand
Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.
The lineSince the dawn of time, artist collectives have been a place of exchange, inspiration and creativity. In the same way, each of the single malts found in our Artist Collective range draws the richness of their olfactory and gustatory palettes from the marriage of various casks. Devoted to diversity, every region and every style of Scottish single malt, peated and unpeated, are represented. Within this range we also find 43%, 48%, 57.1% (100 proof) and cask-strength bottlings. To illustrate the labels of the six bottlings in our first collection, La Maison du Whisky has called on contemporary artists from very different backgrounds. Each of them brings their own very personal touch that echoes the richness of the single malts selected!
