Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1990 AD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.88 points

  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 516 bottles from cask no. 5945
    Another Top Class Speysider, Mortlach is famously heavy in character, contributed by worm tubs and a curious distilling regime involving a small still called ‘The Wee Witchy’. It benefits from ‘sherrywood’ maturation, and this cask is just that: a first fill butt, which in 17 years has tinted its contents to the colour of old oak. Heavy beading. A mellow first nose with treacle toffee and moist, alcoholic Christmas Pudding. Long and sweet to taste, with vanilla toffee and bitter chocolate in the aftertaste – a winter warmer. Water doesn’t change the profile, adding some boat varnish and wax polish.  The texture is smooth and mouth-coating, with chocolate and toffee flavours, some tannin, and a curiously mouth-cooling aftertaste, like spearmint or menthol.
