    6.5 // 6

    Heavy malt, heavy alcohol. Rustic.
  • Taste

    8.5 // 8

    Wildly fruity, with a bizarre-but-intriguing burnt-flower, vanilla-heavy flavor. // More subtle and delicate with a splash of water, but the vanilla/floral elements are maintained. Really cool stuff.
  • Finish

    9 // 7

    Heavily aromatic, really heavy mouthfeel. Joyous. // Mellows out with water.

Defeatless scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

A very odd Mortlach this is.... It is not what you expect, but it is quaffable.
  • Nose
    86 86
    This is not a very typical Mortlach nose... Some freshness, some wood, little bit of caramel.
    It has suprisingly fresh notes like menthol in it.
    With water there are some dark spices in here. Some coal smoke.
  • Taste
    85 85
    Hay, honey, subtle cask influence. Gets sweeter but also a sour hint. Sure this is a Mortlach?
    With water: much sweeter. But it looks like it drawns quickly.
  • Finish
    85 85
    Medium length. Little hot. Tad bitter. With water: a little more sweet. not much difference though.

Die Nase ist sehr anregend. Die süßen Früchte gefallen mir gut. Mit Whisky - zumindest, was ich unter diesem Wort verstehe - hat das jedoch nichts zu tun. Auch im Mund ist der Alkohol kaum spürbar. Fühlt sich an wie unter 50%. Und schmeckt dabei richtig gut. Der Abgang ist der langweiligste Teil und unspektakulär.
Ein sehr interessante Spirituose. Für mich ist das kein Whisky. Man merkt die Jugend, denn die Nähe zum fruchtigen New Make ist offensichtlich. Der Gesamteindruck geht eher in Richtung Poitin. Erstaunlicherweise ist der pur sehr gut zu trinken.
  • Nose
    Süßlich, wenn man die Nase nicht zu tief ins Glas steckt, bemerkt man den Alkohol nicht, erst wenn man sich auf einen Nahkampf einlässt, aber auch dann ist der Alkohol zwar etwas spürbar, aber nicht störend. Sehr fruchtig, Aprikose, Mirabelle, Honig
  • Taste
    Sanfter Antritt, wärmend, aber nicht brennend auf der Zunge, sehr süß und fruchtig, Apfel und Aprikose, Birne, ein Korb heller Früchte
  • Finish
    Tatsächlich zeigt sich sogar ein wenig Eiche und drängt die Frucht in den Hintergrund. Der Gaumen glüht sanft nach.

Mit Whisky hat das noch nicht soviel zu tun, sehr speziell und eigen. Auf jeden Fall ein hoher Wiedererkennungswert und auch lecker, wenn man nicht versucht einen Whisky zu finden. Eine andere Abfüllung, die ich früher probiert habe, war schmackhafter als diese Abfüllung
  • Nose
    Heu, Gras, Kräuter, Traubenkerne, etwas Alkohol, Menthol und eine Tresternote
  • Taste
    starker Antritt, scharfer Alkohol, süss, Rauchig, Menthol, etwas Muff, süss-sauer, wärmend auch hier die Tresternote, Traubenkerne
  • Finish
    schnell weg, eine Kräuternote bleibt noch ein wenig und eine Bitternote

Perfumed, soapy whisky. Nose is tolerable, but taste and finish are not....

BenNevis did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

This is quite sweet, More American oak influence than you would expect in older Macallans. There is sherry and a Macallan style to this but for me the vanilla sweetness comes though to much. If this was £50 a bottle I still wouldn't buy another. Its nice but over priced.

5 years old, finished in Sauternes for 1 year.

    Comes across as quite rough and much higher proof than 80. A nice wine note though!
  • Taste

    Wow, this stuff is great! Unlike anything I've had recently! The malt is raw, almost smoky, with a strong flavor. The wine finishes are a welcome complication. Very moreish.

    Hot and bothered.

"Made at Albuquerque, New Mexico’s Vara Winery and Distillery, this whiskey has a mashbill of 65% corn, 25% rye, and 10% malted barley. It’s double-distilled, first in a pot and then in a column still. Rather than maturing in a barrel, the spirit is processed using a proprietary “accelerated aging” technique. It rests for 24 hours in neutral barrels; then, oak staves that have been toasted and charred are added. The liquid then undergoes a few different processes, including thermo-cycling (applying heat) and agitation, as well as some proprietary processes that aren’t disclosed. The goal, according to distiller Scott Feuille, is to “accelerate the formation of ethyl acetate (oxidation), the breakdown of long-chain compounds into esters, and the extraction of lignin and phenolic compounds from the staves.” The process takes about six days." from WhiskeyAdvocate.com

Cannot rate this. I have full mignonette but no alcol in it??? I will not rate it. I hate rating on corked wine and ruined spirits, doesn't make sense. (to me).
