Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 2005 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.54 points

  1. Bosi scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    A straightforward, honest, relatively light-bodied Mortlach that goes well with a balmy summer evening or a light poultry dish. Sweet, but one should not expect too much in terms of complexity and resonance.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Before flowery-floral notes rise in my nose, unfortunately I smell something nail polish remover. Below are aromas of pear, gooseberry and cooked fruits. In the background, fortunately, the character of the Mortlach distillate is always clear.
    • Taste
      80 80
      The whisky has a pleasant mouthfeel and a light body. This is followed by the classic notes of Mortlach (slightly fleshy), caramel and a bouquet of light fruits.
    • Finish
      78 78
      The finish is medium in length and reflects the profile of the nose and the taste: many bright fruits with a slight bitterness at the end, but does not interfere.

  2. Najzero scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Super summer whisky and has literally sparked my interest in Mortlach.
    85 smooth points. Plus 3 points are still on top for the weekend when the whisky was released :-)
