The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks. Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles. While this means that we can never replicate the particular character of this Single Malt, it also offers an opportunity to sample what we believe to be an exceptional example of the whisky made by one of Scotland’s most distinguished distilleries.
Distilling commenced in 1963, the modern Macduff interestingly has two wash stills and three spirit stills, all of which release their spirit through lyne arms that have a 90 degree right handed angle in them. It also has both wooden and stainless-steel fermenters. Perhaps all these elements contribute to the balance of fruitiness to cereal notes that this whisky presents. The mid palate has ginger, caramel and some softer malted cereal finishing lightly with a gentle sweet touch.
