Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 2008 DL

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.83 points

  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    An impressive independent bottling of Mortlach in a refill wine cask that seems to have tamed the beast of Dufftown. Creamy notes of honey and toffee together with aromas of red berries counteract the fleshy and spicy character of Mortlach and keep this single malt in beautiful balance. A successful Mortlach in perfect drinking strength.

    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity on the nose with red currants, creamy vanilla and barley sugar. Clearly spicy hints of oak, followed by honey and a touch of strawberry.
    • Taste
      Equally sweet and fruity on the palate, immediately followed by warming spices - white pepper and oak. Then creamy sweetness of honey, vanilla and malt with a crunchy cereal note towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish shows a medium length with fleshy notes, toasted bread, honey, brown sugar and finally some dry oak.

      With water: After the addition of a few drops of water a little fresher on the nose with enhanced wine aromas and red berries. Spicy oak with lots of toffee in the background. On the palate noticeably less sweet with a distinct peppery spiciness and prickling oak. Honey with creamy toffee towards the finish. The finish is medium long with notes of honey, toffee and a bit more of dry oak.
