  1. rottendon scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Not that bad at all, even if I personally would like it a little less sour. Nevertheless, it is overall round, if very lively.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Oh, I wouldn't have thought of a Mortlach.
    • Nose
      84 84
      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.
    • Taste
      83 83
      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.
    • Finish
      83 83
      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.

    Value (£55) : 7/10
    • Nose
      Very spirit forward with malt and fresh fruits, apples, poached pears and a touch of banana initially. Some stone fruits like apricot and vanilla-like caramel sweetness. Solventy prickle and cooling mint. Improves with time in the glass. Some savoury spices as well, basil and cumin. With water the banana note is heavily accented.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel. Candy sweetness and more of this baked apple notes rise to the forefront. More of those fruity flavours. Peppery spice and more savoury spices appear. In my opinion the alcohol is just a little too overpowering on the palate neat. However adding water and giving this dram time significantly improves it.
    • Finish
      Lingering sweetness, medium length, more spices here (cinnamon) Spearmint returns after some time.

      Juicy, zesty, apples and custard sweetness.
      Creme brûlée with a mint leaf on top.
      Alc very well integrated.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Bold, sweet and zesty.
      Lots of apples here as well.
      Spicy, with alc more noticable than on the nose.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Dry apple cider.
      This is long, spicy and warming.
