The nose on the Mortlach is excellent and it was the best overall here , even though it is the oldest whisky ever bottled the price is way too high, similarly the Longmorns are priced in the absurd bracket for the quality of whisky you are getting, most definitely cask 508 and it just goes to show that old is not always better and in that casks case, it is much worse.
The ratings above are for the overall experience alone, perhaps I should leave price out of this but none of them are worth what you pay at auction today, more so from a shop, the quality/price ratio is worse on some of them, much worse but if you want aged premium whisky you pay a premium, it is to be expected, whether the taste experience lives up to that price is a different ball game altogether.
Still as H2H go, I really enjoyed this and the nose on the Mortlach 75 is a real gem.
