  2. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Competent malt with heavy px sherry finish. However still a uniy, not whisky here and sherry there. Finish seems a bit longer than only a couple of months which is good. Price is alright for nowadays. One of the biggest compliments must be that I can't find any (sulphurous) off notes. Very solid and much preferable to e.g. a dark sherried Signatory Edradour @46% abv. in my book.

    A mahogany-colored whisky - typical in the color for the current cooperation between Signatory and Kirsach Import. Can the color also convince in terms of taste?
    Priced at € 70 - that's for a whisky with 46% vol. quite demanding. So it seems to be a whisky for the color drinker again.

    Nosing
    On the nose there are initially sweet fruit aromas, strawberries and cherries. Then there is a light herbal note in the background. But the sweet, juicy fruit predominates.

    button
    The taste also comes with sweetness, cherry nectar, strawberry nectar, but everything is more on the sweet-sticky side. At the very end there is some wood, very light nut or almond.

    finish
    In the end there is not much left, there is light wood with cherry syrup.

    Conclusion
    The whisky is too young and sweet and lacks complex aromas. Unfortunately one of the modern whiskys that are convincing due to their color but lack depth. Too bad.

  5. whisky_garage scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: intense, sweet. Sherry theme, chokeberry, cherry, creaminess, a little vanilla and spices.
    Taste: bright, sweet with bitterness. Dried fruits, chokeberry, cherry, creamy notes, vanilla, some spices, oak.
    Finish: medium duration, sweet with bitterness. Creamy, vanilla, barrel.

    Conclusion: Comfortable Sherry Mortlach for consumption without unnecessary nerdiness. A bit annoying obsessive bitterness in the taste, but as they say, the taste and color .......

    A Mortlach with Sherry is exactly what I'm always looking for. The 11 years come across as older. It lies deep, oily and dark in the glass. Find it deeper than the 12 OA and 14 OA. Adds to the 16 OA, but it looks more complex. More spice on tap. That gives him one more point. The 15 from the GM is a little further back, as it looks much deeper and darker. The typical Mortlach acid (green gooseberry) is very well integrated and you can only rudimentarily recognize that it is a Mortlach. If you are into the gooseberry, you should prefer the 15. For me, good value for money. It's nice how complex and versatile a Mortlach can be.
    • Nose
      Sherry, cherries, vanilla sauce, hazelnuts, green gooseberries, a little cinnamon sugar, green tea
    • Taste
      Juicy oranges and cherries, spicy cinnamon and oak, but not bitter, gooseberries and some currants, vanilla ice cream
    • Finish
      Medium-long, spicy oak without bitterness, cappuccino
