  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A Mortlach with the typical meaty and beefy character.
    • Nose
      Typical fat meaty notes we're used to with Mortlach. Very fragrant and herbal. Associations of Maggi. Cereal and some sweet barley. Butterscotch as well.
    • Taste
      Thick and meaty. Beefy or 'a tad dirty' as you will. Syrupy texture. Juicy oak. Soem stewed fruits. Cinnamom and ginger. Hints of sherry. Raisins and marmelade.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Sweet and slightly spicy at the end.

  4. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Notes from Gordon & MacPhail.
    • Nose
      Toasted malt with a burst of exotic fruits. A sweetness emerges, <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />reminiscent of homemade apple pie.
    • Taste
      Rich and sweet with defined Sherry influence. Smooth dark chocolate notes and a touch of chilli spice.
    • Finish
      Long and smooth.
