Macduff distillery is right on the outside corner of the Speyside region between Macduff and Banff. Italian owned, it was rare for many years as most was sold in Italy where is is typically seen bottled at a young age where the fresh and crisp style shines. This expression marks a departure having been finished in a PX sherry cask. The nose is expressive, with raisins, sultanas, and dried orange zest. The palate is full and rich with muscavado sugar, spiced orange zest, dates and maple syrup. The palate rounds out the whole with a hint of tobacco and mint.
