  1. Gonathras did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Mortlach 14 yo 1995/2010 (43%, Chieftain’s, butt, cask #7279, 870 bottles) That’s what’s cool with a low strength, you may draw many bottles out of a single butt. Colour: gold. Nose: more like the official Old and Rare (so young and quite common ;-)), that is to say pretty leathery, ale-y, chalky, a bit sour, possibly thanks to the sherry. Some bitter oranges. May lack a little more focus. Mouth: oranges, maple syrup, a touch of mustard, some leather, some raisins, some walnuts. No more, no less. Drinks well, partly thanks to the very approachable strength. Finish: not that short, more or less all on bitter oranges. Comments: very fair, not lacking of any Mortlachness. An excellent introduction, I’d say.SGP:551 - 82 points.
