Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1992 DL
10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.67 points
- wonderfully filthy !! Wow!!
Prune, caramel, raisin, rosehip, mocha, leather and honey.
Caramel, raisin, prune, mocha, dried fig, cherry and hazelnut. With water more spice.
Mocha, dark chocolate, prune, raisin, dried fig and nutmeg.
- Especially the finish was great. The rest was very good too, but not enough to make it into the nineties.
An oloroso nose, but with a subtle twist. Not so much like the meaty ones that both Mortlach and oloroso casks can produce. It's quite jammy on blueberry, dark cherry. Then, orange, barley, marzipan and freshly sawn wood (the wood, sawdust, and vanilla). There is a vague hint of mint.
Still the sweeter variant of oloroso. Not as brutal as it can be, and very kind with jammy notes. The orange is more zesty now, and the wood delivers a dryness, along with spices.
Now it's getting somewhere. It's drier, nuttier, and darker. Marzipan, clove, nutmeg, dark fruit, dark chocolate and orange zest.
- A really nice release from Mortlach, although far from 90 points for me.
Mature and inviting. Very fruity with cherries, figs, dates, grapes and a bit of toffee.
Nicely rounded, full body with orange peel, custard and tons of dried fruits. Becomes slightly earthy and metallic towards the finish.
Quite long, fruity at first and later becomes dry on espresso with a pinch of pepper.
