Millburn 1975/2001 25年 61.9% ,Rare Malts

十九世紀以來,Millburn皆以磨坊的型態在經營著,有傳言其最早於1807年或1805年由Welsh先生成立。酒廠原本稱為Inverness酒廠,於1825年正式由Alexander Macdonald及James Rose共同成立,兩年之後,海關法獲得通過。不久之後,該酒廠進入清算,並在1853年被玉米商David Rose收購。

1876年,酒廠整修,1881年,David的兒子George Rose繼承酒廠,直到1892年酒廠出售給Andrew Haig公司這間公司主要是經營杜松子酒的公司,他們在1935年與William Sanderson公司合作,經營權再度移轉到
Distiller Company Ltd (DCL)公司Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd. (SMD)公司,後來成為Diageo帝亞吉歐的一部分。

Millburn酒廠設立的地點交通運輸不便,在遭遇80年代的威士忌危機之後,酒廠終於在1985年關廠結束營業,隨後在1988年拆除。1989年該廠址開立了一家餐館,稱之為"The Auld Distillery",這個名字後來改為"Slice",目前它是知名的連鎖餐飲企業Premier Travel Inn的品牌之一。

Tasting Notes by Whiskyfun Serge:

Millburn 25 yo 1975/2001 (61.9%, Rare Malts)
Colour;: straw. Nose: this one is much rawer, smoky, meaty and grassy, with notes of mustard seeds, ham, wet chalk… Truly wild. Not pungent despite the high alcohol but let’s try it with water (at roughly 45%): we have more wax now, fir honey, vanilla pods, pollen… Water really worked, this one is an excellent swimmer but it’s not quite as complex as the 1969. Hints of wet dog. Mouth (neat): punchy and much fruitier, on canned pineapples, oranges and a slight waxiness. Lots of alcohol of course that quite masks the whole. So, with water: even sweeter but also spicier, with more tannins but also quite some salt and those mustardy notes. Long, peppery and spicy finish, with less sweetness but a little resin now… The whole is quite ‘natural’, a good example of most Rare Malts’ style. 87 points.
