  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Despite its youth and its high percentage of alcohol, the Mysterious Morticia but extremely creamy and velvety. The sweet base note gives this malt a certain elegance and "sweetness" at the same time, with the smoke and peat always showing powerful. A great drop, the only criticism is the price for me. 85 € for a 6-year-old "no-name-whisky" I find quite ambitious (even if it tastes really delicious!)
    • Nose
      Creamy, slightly sweet peat auspiciously rises from the glass. Stick to the glass wall syrupy and oily drops which run back into the glass relatively quickly. A velvety fruit note dissolves from the voluminous and slightly mineral peat, caramel and malt combine with a hint of peach and apricot. Slightly floral and grassy hints follow, with minimal nougat and milk chocolate. The alcohol is very harmonious involved despite 59%, slowly dissolves a slightly greasy note from the now earthy peat note. A touch of salt and sea breeze comes to the fore, then dominates again the creamy and velvety base note of Mysterious Morticia. Again, velvety peach and sweet chocolate come to the fore, a touch of vanilla ends in slightly burnt sugar.
    • Taste
      Earthy and slightly smoky, a peat cloud spreads on the palate at the first sip. Woody, slightly tart spiciness envelops the tongue and dresses the entire palate. Mineral peat and a subtle hint of smoke mingle, creating a slightly greasy and creamy mouthfeel. Walnuts and tart wood elements flash out and leave the well-known creamy aroma on the palate. The initially restrained smoke becomes more dominant over time, but a fruity sweetness dominates the whole taste.
    • Finish
      Slowly, the peat aroma is smoky and mineral again. The sweet fruit flavors I hardly find in the end, creamy wood elements and some old walnut flavor can be hoping for the next sip. Creamy and velvety with a now sweet smoky note, the aftertaste sounds slow and leaves behind the smoke aromas wonderfully creamy wood elements, dark fruit flavors and sweet sugar on the tongue.

    • Nose
      First, there is a granary through which the wind carries the smell of fresh apples and limes. It is followed by sweet honey wine, which stimulates the flow of saliva and is accompanied by bourbon vanilla, before the dried hops and peaches push forward from the background. Large oily drops run lazily from the edge of the glass. After the first sip, there are suddenly lighter smoke, hints of smoked ham and maritime notes that I had previously not noticed. Is my nose already so used to smoke that it "went down" in the other flavors before, or does the "habit" trickle smoke into me?
    • Taste
      It starts soft and oily with a great honey sweetness. Then cool smoke sets in which is interwoven with vanilla and orange notes, while gradually hints of coffee and roasted flavors come to the fore from the background. The conclusion is a pronounced, but not intrusive oak flavor.
    • Finish
      The smoke remains present for a long time and carries with it salt and orange notes, which are gradually replaced by milk coffee, vanilla and oak.

    Shortly after the delivery we were allowed to try this drop. Overwhelmed eye, nose and mouth made their first impressions in the in-house tasting sheet announced ... https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/ht3WVocBUXGpITHLw5ohD8HgiiDN3Utml-2VfRWqMqo8LSl0oJzSaUj-7uTNhaV4ah-cdn9sm5HGvN1X9TH0hd06Jchpkdy6ZFPW80OEcs3iqqhWGY4TIwcx1a9RA1RLA9kMQZAqYjY=w1320-h881-no

  5. schero scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    An impetuous part with extremely thick sweetness.
    • Nose
      Pappsüßer scent, to young and grainy smoke, then the smoke turns to burning campfire with very small branches, while it is already mineral with light citrus notes
    • Taste
      Even sweeter, the smoke comes second, with oranges, a lot of heat, already creamy, the smoke is already biting
    • Finish
      Quite a lot of heat and smoke, then again some youthful smoke, slight bitterness
