Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 2007 MMcK

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.05 points

  1. Eun1 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The whisky has a multifaceted wood note profile, which ranges from freshly sawn oak boards to menthol freshness and dark notes of leather and coffee. Fruity accents are well integrated - most likely: Vistula and dried apricots. The sulfur, which is not atypical for Mortlach, is either missing here, or is so well integrated into the aroma profile that it is not noticeable.
    In the mouth a strong start with fruity sweetness, which is also carried here by spicy oak notes. A certain menthol-like sharpness is also present here. The sweet taste impressions disappear very quickly and give way to a dominant dryness that drags on into a long finish, in which impressions of dark fruits and dark chocolate predominate.

    Little Arab

    I must confess, the first time I tried this Mortlach, I was not very impressed. The second time was much better, but I still was not convinced. I’m writing these notes during the third round (luckily I got quite a big sample from my buddy Manny, allowing me to try it even five times). It keeps getting better.

    The nose is honeysweet on red fruit, leather and coffee. Mokatine, even. You know, the Little Arab candy from Roodthooft in Antwerp (with the Arab on the wrapper). Then some dried apricots and even some gravy. It had been quite a while since I had any umami Mortlach on the nose. There is also a floral note in there and I suspect that’s what kept me from fulling enjoying this in the first place.

    It could have done with a bit more body. This is rather lightly oily. The initial sweetness almost knocks the teeth out of my mouth, but that is soon counter-footed by the spices that translate into nutmeg, salt (!) and cloves. The fruit is rather red and dried. It also has a fresh note of menthol, but that cannot convince me. Luckily there is enough going on here to distract the taste buds.

    It does make some amends in the finish. Creamy and spicy, sweet on baked banana, dried apricots and tannins. Salty at the death.

    Sweet, drying, piquant Mortlach from very active sherry casks. It grows on you.

    Nose: Dried fruit, apricots, leather
    Taste: Sweetness from the first sip with the addition of dried fruit. Nietstey's sweetness ends quite quickly and it gets slightly spicy in my opinion. What I don't like personally.
    Rating 87 | 100 Fruit profile finish rather long.

    Alcohol nicely integrated. Compared to the Glenlossie - Morrison & MacKay 2007 more fruit and sweetness, but less tart wood notes.
    • Nose
      Tropical fruits, sweet, sherry, floral and aromatic, spicy
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity, spice and sherry
    • Finish
      A bit of banana and still nice and fruity and spicy
