Notes from a blind tasting.
Oh, I wouldn't have thought of a Mortlach.
Yellow fruit, cereals and a hint of vanilla right after pouring. Very dense after a while, roasted, caramelized nuts and calvados. The alcohol pricks something in the nose. When warmed up, it looks significantly more acidic and a little bit vinous. Now and then a splash of raspberry juice.
Also in the mouth initially yellow fruit, before the alcohol strikes and with its stinging initially kills all impressions. When the burn subsides, liquorice, apples and a little caramel. In the second sip, a clear bitterness under the predominant acidity is noticeable. As expected, it now burns significantly less.
The finish is short to medium long, with the liquorice lingering and gradually giving way to a slight sweetness. with the second sip, the acidity and bitterness remain much more concise and longer on the palate.
