  1. Gonathras did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Mortlach 12 yo 1998/2010 (43%, Dun Bheagan, sherry hogsheads, casks #10188/10189, 810 bottles) Long time no Dun Bheagan! Colour: pale gold. Nose: it’s well a Mortlach, with these leathery, bacony, and mineral notes, but it’s also got walnuts, possibly from the sherry, as well as touches of honey vinegar and brown ale. Mouth: good, easy, lacking a part of the great definition that the Wemyss had, but it’s got these touches of mustard, then dried fruits such as raisins and dates. Sulphur-like hints, oranges, more leather… Good body given the low strength. Finish: medium, with more ginger, leather, and oranges. Comments: we’re closer to the Rare Old. Very similar profiles and overall quality. SGP:451 - 81 points.

    A nice Mortlach

      Fresh and fruity with apple and orange zest
    • Taste
      Pepper, mint, chocolate, oranges, a lot is happening after a couple of seconds. 
    • Finish
      Short to medium with the typical "meaty" body of a Mortlach
