  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A powerful nose with a palate that needs water, it is zesty and powerful , the alcohol is massive, a muscular Mortlach this one.

    The aftertaste of the old Mortlach
    • Nose
      Scent: Good sweet floral and sweet fruit of lime fruit, malt, faint gardenia, tail rhyme is the aroma of some salty toffee;
    • Taste
      Entrance: sweet, toast, slightly salty, some olive flavor, as old wine, strong enough!
    • Finish
      End rhyme: long malt sweet around the tip of the tongue, salty cream, meaty ~

  7. Whiskyandalement scored this whisky 92 points Newbie

    Tasted as part of the Whiskybase gathering 2018. Enrico Gaddoni opened a fresh bottling for a tasting.
    The nose is nice and rich, with salted caramel and a hint of sultanas in the background.
    Palate is full and powerful for a dram so old, the old bottle effect was pleasant but not overwhelming. Text book spirit of Mortlach, meaty and heavy with just the right amount of cask influence. BRAVO Turatello!

    https: // Color: This is not it, is not it GM? But surely the bottling is GM? Nose: Floral with a glossy and plump floral feeling of dead leaves. Attack: Sense of sheer feeling, full of condensation, stunning jab with no fun. Body: A superbly good shape light class. Taste: Hard cheesecake feeling cut and cut. Minti is a faint little tight. Alcohol feeling is also cut. Excellent drinking. Asada feeling caramel feeling none. Finish: Exquisite refreshing vanilla shower with some kaku hot water feeling. Well, even if I get drunk this much, the texture that I love to drink is truly Mortlach.
