Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1998 GM

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

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Thoughts: 87/100. A solid Mortlach, perhaps a touch of sulphur? It’s not offensive if there is. The best part is the palate and finish. I like it.

      Summer berries, acidic, liquid honey, perhaps most surprisingly - an ashy note (sulphur?). Citrus, (lemon, orange, lime) chicken stock, carrot, cherry blossom. Fairly fresh, but a very oily and rich spirit.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Great oily mouthfeel, big - but balanced, orange oil, marzipan, white pepper, a little melon and wax. Salt. Really nice. Drinks way less than 59.7%. Still takes water well though.
    • Finish
      87 87
      long, salty and sweet. Bacon, peppercorns, dragon fruit, strawberries, ash, cacao powder, cherry, a little waxy still.
