Milford, Batch 1M32, 1991 Vintage, 10 year old, 43%

Price: $40.00 Issue: Summer 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

A cask from some of the last remaining stocks of whisky from New Zealand’s Wilson distillery. A very unpretentious creamy-sweet malt (fresh vanilla, honey), with subtle floral notes, mint and hints of smoke. A bit youthful in character-especially on the finish. I think two to five more years on oak would enhance this whisky and provide additional depth and smoothness, but it is quite enjoyable right now, at ten years old.
