Make A Big (Age) Statement This Holiday

24 Glorious Years Old.

24 Glorious Years Old.

If you find yourself in the last minute gift giving scramble this weekend, don’t hesitate to make an impact with some very old Scotch. You can do it without breaking the bank and basically please any Scotch drinker with the Miltonduff 24.

An especially clean and pure spirit, even at such an age. Miltonduff is most well known for being the top dressing malt for Ballantine's wonderful and elegant blends. It's quite a rare thing to see it bottled on its own as a single malt, and we're supremely happy to have had the chance to do it. There is lots of butterscotch and Werther's Original cream and caramel notes to this malt. A bit of buttered popcorn and a fine drizzle of melted milk chocolate round it all out. For those who normally drink the classic malts of Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, this is a luxurious rise to the top of that style ladder without paying the premium associated with the very old bottles from those illustrious distilleries. Not a hint of smoke here, just a little dried nuttiness and faint herbal note round out everything with a slight savor. At the natural cask strength of 50.8% ABV, this is utter perfection.
