Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 2008 SV

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.00 points

  1. Gilles_V scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Young but perfectly complete whisky.
    Active bourbon cask and spicy Mortlach character: excellent marriage.
    Maybe not very complex, but its charm really lies in this beautiful bourbon / spice marriage.

    Edict after 1 month: finally it is complex. The nose becomes on banana, pistachios and sweet oriental spices. It is also felt in the final (always quite short). A whisky that is out of the ordinary, very interesting.

      You immediately smell the cask of active bourbon, of excellent quality: vanilla, wood, fresh fruit juice.
      After 5 minutes, the spicy and meaty character of Mortlach appears.
      Very nice balance between aging and distillate.

      Spice. Body and presence beauties. Almost hoppy. Vanilla too.

      Finally of medium length. Fresh fruit juice.

    The perfect powerful and balanced, fat and fruity Mortlach ! Dangerous

  3. elchingy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    At first glance, this Mortlach seemed very pleasant to me, but a little abrupt. Two drops of water changed the game. On the nose, green bananas, green apples and citrus fruits dominate. All these oils that we see dancing in the glass following the addition of water envelop the palate with a delicious layer of concentrated zest of yellow and green lemons that complete the nose. In the underlay the vanillin and the woody features remind us but know how to remain discreet.
