  1. hs305 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2002]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 40 Euro in November, 2002.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 82,5.  My notes state it is easy drinkable but nothing to remember by tomorrow morning.

  4. markjedi1 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    This is a bit of an
    odd Mortlach, if you ask me.
    • Nose
      Oh, what a surprising
      nose. Spicy and sweet, sure, but it has something that I cannot quite identify.
      Lavender? Marzipan, light brown sugar, rotting oranges (I kid you not).
      Something chemical. I am not sure I like this.
    • Taste
      It is slightly oily
      and mouth coating, but quickly turns dry. Honeysweet and soft. Mild on the
      spices. The oranges return, but it does have a dirty edge. Seems to me like
      some kind of cough syrup. Ginger and camphor. Mild smoke, most likely from the
      oak. Turns bitter.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly
      long and spicy, warming too. But that chemical element is disturbing.
