    Note by Serge Valentin from

    Mortlach 17 yo 1991/2008 (56.6%, Villa Konthor, Limburg, sherry)  The Villa Konthor is one of the places where ‘some things happen’ during Limburg’s Whisky Fair. By the way, the WF crew (well, that’s me) should attend Limburg again this year, see you there? Colour: gold. Nose: well, it’s a fairly wacky one, with gunpowder, cabbage, and truffles to boot. Concrete and clay as well, coal smoke, Brussels sprouts… And plenty of leather. Particular, as they say, and time wouldn’t change much to the situation. With water: as usual, water only makes things more… obvious. Old tools, sulphur, leather, lemon juice, patchouli, cigars. Mouth (neat): beefy, leathery, gingery, peppery, marmalade-y. Not the easiest ever, I’d say. With water: improves a lot! Bitter oranges, ginger liqueur, cinchona, marmalade… The butterfly's coming out of his cocoon, but that’s a little late… Finish: long, good, on citrus and leather, with pickled ginger in the aftertaste. Comments: this little baby’s got its good sides, but others were a little difficult IMHO. Bah, I’m sure we’ll find much better Mortlachs at this year’s Limburg Whiskyfair. SGP:562 - 78 points.

  5. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: fino sherry, sulphur, nuts, apples and floral
    T: crispy, chocolate, nuts, malty and winey
    F: walnuts, olive oil and floral
    needs some water, looks like the Mortlach 1988 DT
