Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1954 GM
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.59 points
- Lovely smooth and fruity Mortlach with nice sherry influence.
- Apricot jam leather orange marmalade, meat, tobacco , Demerara, toffee, superbly integrated sherry
- An old sherry whisky that is more on the dry side- though very drinkable
Toffee, caramel, burnt sugar, acacia honey, molasses, wet tobacco, dried fruits, plums, dates, deep sherry wood, spices, nutmeg, cloves, caraway, smoked sausages - excellent!
Little punchy, liquorice, toffee, coffee, little sweetness, spices, pepper, soy sauce, little leafy, sherry wood, meaty, bacon, cigars - great!
Medium long, warm, more cigars

- Lacking a bit of power because of the low abv. for the rest a very good meaty Mortlach.
- One of those ancient Mortlachs that has become a meat feast. Not the
best 1954 Mortlach I've had but I'd happily drink it all night (I wish).
Roast beef and the gravy from the bottom of the roasting tin. Stewed
prunes, coffee grounds and milk chocolate. A little earthy and redolent
of a dry cellar.
Initial prune juice but it quickly dries into a meaty cocktail. Highly
seasoned dried meat with just a hint of underlying sweetness with cedar
Very woody with lots of soft chewy spices.
