Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 2006 MrW

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Water: through the Pfeffrigkeit he calls all the time for loud water, of which he can also carry something, the sharpness is pushed into the background, and he becomes more fruity

    Conclusion: A strange malt, which will not like so many Maltheads. Personally, I find the combination of the fleshy Brennereicharakters and the red wine incredibly exciting and very well implemented. Somehow the drop makes you crave a good wild meal with red cabbage, the sauce is seasoned with laurel and cranberries, and this would be the perfect companion. The only drawback is the not well integrated alcohol.
    • Nose
      87 87
      meaty beef broth with red berries, the alcohol is not perfectly integrated and provides strong white pepper, cranberry compote, very strong oak, bay leaves, cloves
    • Taste
      88 88
      surprisingly soft after the rather strong nose, caramel, strawberries and lingonberry aromas again, the oak is much more restrained than in the nose, but brings a pleasant counterpoint to the sweetness of the red wine
    • Finish
      87 87
      long, beautiful interplay between the oak and the red wine, also some pepper comes here again

    This Mortlach was ripened for 10 months in a Re-fill Bourbon Hogshead for 6 months in a Merlot keg of the Moselle and then finned in a Re-fill red wine barrique for another 21 months.
