    If it's a blind tasting, I say it's a Brora. But it's a dirty nose old school Mortlach.

    Excellent, I have always been a big fan of the older Cadenhead Dumpy bottles, along with the 1936 G&M this is the best Mortlach I have had.
    • Nose
      Pineapple, apple, plum, a few minty notes, a little farmy peat (like some 1981 Brora).

      Give it some time in the glass and it develops nicely, reminds me of Millburn now but definitely an old style malt with its leathery, buttery profile.
    • Taste
      Old school malt, make no mistake her, the classic Mortlach meatiness and grittiness is not here, this is older in style. Lovely attack, quite delicate, perfectly weighted on apple and pineapple but its in the background with a little peat.

      Gets more substantial on the palate with faint hints of milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium length, with a little sweetness in the tail.

  4. Malt Hans scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Fruity aroma, red apples, tinned pears, apricot, pineapple, grapefruit juice, ripe melon, peat, pinewood and mint. Medium sweet taste, eucalyptus, ginger, walnuts, orange marmelade, smoke and vanilla. Long, fruity and spicy end.
