Mortlach 15 years, 43% alc.
Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail
Region: Speyside, Scotland
Nose: sugar, slightly burnt caramel, sultanas. Oatmeal and somehow an earthy note, maybe freshly harvested root vegetables. In the overall impression but rather sweet and fruity, complex.
Palate: Mouth-filling, almost like syrup. Very sweet, liquid honey with light spice. Something orange, menthol or mint I think.
Finish: more spicy than nose and palate, very dry. Displaces the sweetness almost completely. Warming and very long.
Conclusion: He surprised me, complex with a clear development of sweet fruit to dry seasoning. I like it.
