The Rare Malts are a now-discontinued series of cask-strength releases designed by Diageo to showcase some of the hidden treasures in their portfolio. This particular dram is all the more precious for having come from a distillery closed in 1985.

Millburn 1969 Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Peppery, heavy and oily, with scents of chewy Highland Toffee. Some dried fruits; rum and raisin ice cream, old Spanish brandy. With water, the oiliness grows whilst the fruitiness becomes a heavy perfume, like that of lilies at night. Further development brings nougat and warm creamy milk, with nuts.
     
    Body: Oily. Smooth.

    Palate: Delicious at natural strength, even better with a little water. A big, thick mouthfeel - sweet then drying elegantly; sweet peppers followed by a hint of matchbox striker. Traces of clove and herbal notes too, of parsley and sorrel. Slightly mouth-cooling.

    Finish: Dry. Cooling. Herbal.

    Hallo from Greece. From the "anonymous alcoholic gang" Millburn 35, was voted as the No 1 whisky ever tasted as long as it comes to nosing and one of the ever best in mouth feeling. Now waiting for our next meeting at "all about whisky" shop to taste the Millburn 25 y.o. Enjoy!
