  1. Gonathras did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Mortlach 1989/2010 (46%, Berry Bros & Rudd, cask # 5141)  Colour: gold. Nose: it’s one of the ‘smoky’ ones, on the verge of being sulphury, without being sulphury, I’m sure you see what I mean. There’s plenty of chalk, soot, and saltpetre, plus a lot of leather and walnuts, with this medicinal side again in the background. That’s right, bandages. As they say in Sundance, the jury’s still out…  Mouth: great! Leather, waxes, bitter apples, eucalyptus, perhaps a little Swiss cheese (genuine Gruyère, not the utter junk they sell us in supermarkets), and plenty of walnut liqueur. This, is pretty perfect, provided you’re into salty/wacky sides in your whisky. Finish: long, more leathery and more gingery. Good sulphur, even a little plastic. Very Mortlach. Comments: one to drink with a fondue savoyarde! Very well done, Doug and BB&R (yeah I know, I’m late…) P.S. not everyone would enjoy this. SGP:372 - 88 points.
