  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Great example of an old style, uncomplicated dram with lots of quality! Simply lovely.
    • Nose
      Classic Mortlach! Meaty, sherried and savory! I get cherries, bramble, hazelnut chocolate, beef stew.
    • Taste
      Savory, rich and well matured! Taking the ABV in consideration this has a great body! Very nice to see that, apparently, thanks to the way of distillation that this distillery is able to deliver on lower ABV. I get some leather, blueberry, forest fruits and a whiff of tobacco.
    • Finish
      Long. Slightly smoky and very tasteful! I get quite some espresso beans in the finish. What a great dram!

      I really underestimated this dram but I’m happy to have been able to taste this! Whisky like it’s ment to be.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Quite a heavily sherried nose, sour cherry, blackberries raisins, plum, some apricot, nutty, slightly meaty, dark chocolate, spices like clove and nutmeg and a bit of polished wood.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Very full considering the 43% ABV. Sweet, sour and fruity: sour cherries and blackberries, blueberrie pie, dried apricot and some raisins, also leather notes, some nuttiness and black coffee, spicy with black pepper and clove.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long: sour cherry, bitter dark chocolate, espresso, a trace of smoke, ending on peppery spice and charred wood.

  7. Koning scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Great nose, a rather rough palate with a plastic offnote to my taste buds. Had this in a blind tasting, never thought this to be a Mortlach!
