  3. St. Pauli scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Especially the finish was great. The rest was very good too, but not enough to make it into the nineties. 
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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. 
    • Finish
      Now it's getting somewhere. It's drier, nuttier, and darker. Marzipan, clove, nutmeg, dark fruit, dark chocolate and orange zest.

  4. p4blo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A really nice release from Mortlach, although far from 90 points for me.
    • Nose
      Mature and inviting. Very fruity with cherries, figs, dates, grapes and a bit of toffee.
    • Taste
      Nicely rounded, full body with orange peel, custard and tons of dried fruits. Becomes slightly earthy and metallic towards the finish.
    • Finish
      Quite long, fruity at first and later becomes dry on espresso with a pinch of pepper.
