    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    One of 188 bottles from cask no. 3572
    Mortlach was the first distillery to be founded in the ‘distilling capital’, Dufftown. It is a big, oily new make, although this cask - a refill hogshead – has mellowed and lightened it considerable, as well as lightly colouring its contents pale gold (flax or 9CT gold). It has a fresh-fruity nose, like a fruit salad made with Kiwi and melon, with an interesting linseed oil note behind (cricket bats) and beyond this a slight mossiness. Water advances the fruit (fruit soap?), and introduces a trace of cherry cake. The flavour is light and delectable, sweet to start, then drying gently; smooth, but not big in texture, leaving a lingering memory of pears. Like the Linkwood above, it is easy to drink, even refreshing.
