  5. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Not the typical beefy characteristics here. This Mortlach is more on the fruity side.
    • Nose
      Tropical fruitiness of pineapple and mango. Bananas. Cake mix and honey. Sandalwood.
    • Taste
      More woody sharpness than expected. Toasted oak. Barley sugar. Lots of vanilla and custard now. Butterscotch as well.
    • Finish
      Cocoa butter. Toffee. A little pepper. More bitterness at the end.
