Murray McDavid Dufftown 1997 10 Year Old

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

In the latest review of the Murray McDavid independent bottling series, we explore the Dufftown 10 Year Old. Aged in Bourbon casks with a Ridge Zinfandel cask finish, this Speyside whisky had only 3000 bottles produced.

Although only aged 10 years, this mahogany-coloured scotch is surprisingly mellow with almost no heat. The young age however is somewhat apparent by the lack of real depth. Nonetheless, it does come recommended should you see a bottle of this available at your local liquor store.

Palate: Sweet with a thick but not oily consistency. Slight hints of blueberry muffin and mint.

Finish: Lingering strawberry for a beautifully dry finish.

Overall: Yet another quality bottle from the Murray McDavid limited series also reveals its overall lack of depth. Great scotch for the novice drinker as its sweetness and lack of heat will likely appeal to that group.
