    [January, 2019] A quick review of a small sample from a swap...

    ...that keeps the promise of a great dram. Usually all (older) Samaroli bottlings are a class of their own because good Silvano (R.I.P.) always selected both interesting and delicious casks - like this one. A perfect old style Traditional Scotch with a flabbergasting nosing profile and a delicious taste. This is malt whisky at its best!
    • Nose
      93 93
      The colour is yellow gold and the nose offers an adorable old style profile with lots of unusual aromas like tree resins, gauze bandages, wax polish, motor oil and wet forest floor - beside the tradtional Speyside fruits, honeys and spices. Very, very interesting and all perfectly balanced without any off-note. Later some beeswaxy and oily notes join in that turn it even more complex and delicate. Several minutes later I feel like I am in a joiner's workshop with fresh cut and older wooden aromas and a whiff of furniture polish and solid glue. Great stuff, no doubt!
    • Taste
      94 94
      The taste is excellent, too! There is a delicious fruit salad with a honey and caramel topping that is slightly burnt. Some fine peaty-ashy flavours pop up in the next layer before the forest floor returns with pine needles and resins. After that the spices kick in followed by an old herbal liqueur while some hints of chocolate lurk in the background. This is a great movie on my palate!
    • Finish
      92 92
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and charming with a creamy coating and no distracting moments. The finish is of medium length and adds liquorice notes and some drying ashy-metallic moments that are not distracting at all. Water releases additional grassy and chalky-mineral aromas in the nose and turns the taste even more mellow - but I like the neat dram better...

    Tasted blind.

    Nose : Yellow and exotic fruits, beeswax, pine resin and polish. Reminds me of the 1973 Speyside releases but even better.

    Mouth : Creamy, spicy, citrusy, a veil of smoke (bonfire one), pine resin again. Slightly drying.

    Finish : Long, spicy, sweet and smoky.

    Impressive whisky. Elegant and tasty. I would never have guessed it was a Mortlach.

    Very good, very elegant just a little underpowered.
    • Nose
      Smells medicinal with some pineapple & honey, a little polish, more peat than expected, matches.,
    • Taste
      Sweet, and very elegant,  creamy, honeycomb, peat is there with a little dryness.Its basically like fruit salad & cream , reminds me of the gooseberry from tinned fruit cocktail along with the peach.
    • Finish
      Good length with the swetness growing and peat in the background
