  1. stefan_PB scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nice light summer whiksy.
    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity. Heather, some vanilla. There are also steamed green vegetables. Very pleasant, nothing annoying on the nose. But not particularly complex either.
    • Taste
      There is actually minimal smoke here. Some sweetness and fruit (pear?) And citrus peel. Creamy in the mouth. Mild and easy to drink. A bit peppery at the end.
    • Finish
      Spicy, almost a little sharp. Long and at the very end some oak bitterness.

    Very fruity nose for a Mortlach; mainly the green varieties of orchard fruits. Very nice.
    On the palate mild astringency, lemon, gooseberry. Slightly waxy mouthfeel.
    Fruity-astringent but quite tasty finish. A little ginger.

      Typical young Mortlach. Greasy and oily malt aromas but doughy accents followed by nuts and orange zest. In the background there is a sparkling, effervescent minerality and flowery tones. Quite beautiful and composed absolutely typical of distilleries. It gets a little fresher over time, even slightly smoky, with the doughy and oily aromas still forming the core.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Despite the low alcohol content, it is wonderfully full and voluminous. Oily, nutty aromas wrestle with damp earth, fizzy drinks and smoke for the upper hand. In the background something like buttercups, dark yeast cake crust and a hint of orange and apple.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Surprisingly long, nutty-tart accompanied by vegetable tones and smoke.
