Miltonduff 2009 8 Year Old - Strictly Limited Edition by Carn Mor (70cl, 46%)
A single cask 8 year old offering from the lesser known Miltonduff Speyside distillery bottled as part of the Carn Mor independent releases by Morrisson & Mackay. Matured in an Ex-Bourbon barrel bottled in 2018 Strictly Limited to only 321 bottles from one cask.
Miltonduff is located in Speyside and is perhaps best known as one of the key malts in the Ballantine's blends. It was purchased by Hiram Walker in the 1930s, who installed the Lomond stills that briefly produced the now sought after Mosstowie single malts in 1964, but these were removed again in 1981. The distillery passed through the hands Allied Distillers before arriving with current owners, Pernod-Ricard, and despite its continued requirements for Ballantine's blends, official bottlings of its single malt have been deemed worthy of bottling by each of its proprietors, a sentiment shared by many independent companies too.
This is a Strictly Limited bottling, a small batch and single cask sub-category of Morrison & Mackay's Carn Mor label. Morrison & Mackay are a Perth-based company, producing a number of whisky liqueurs as well as independent single malts and blends, including the popular recently revived Old Perth. In 2017 the firm completed the construction of the Aberargie distillery in the town of the same name.
