Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 2007 HL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.50 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2018] I had this dram during a Jim McEwan tasting in Bonn as a starter into the evening...

    ...and I ask myself: Why the hell do they bottle such immature, unbalanced and hot stuff? The sherry finish (after seven years of bourbon cask maturation) did not help to improve this as the sherry is not integrated with the other flavours of this dram. A typical modern whisky that is just ... dispensable!
    • Nose
      82 82
      The colour is yellow gold and the nose offers a rather young and somewhat immature profile with the sherry finish not really integrated. To be honest, I do not enjoy this nose despite it is not flawed at all - it just does not work for me...
    • Taste
      84 84
      The taste is very simple on barley sugars and modern (unimpressive) sherry flavours with some chocolatey notes. It gets rather harsh and unbalanced after some chewing. Water does not help either in the nose nor on the palate.
    • Finish
      81 81
      The initial mouthfeel is ... immature (meaning neither warming nor coating) and it shows an unattractive bitter-drying touch (old papers, cardboards). The finish is short and unimpressive and it gets quite hot and drying towards the end.

  2. ARDBERG scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Needs a lot of air, imho.
