    It is hard to believe that I had put Mortlach on the backburner for so long,
    after my initially disappointing encounter. This is a great Speysider. The
    distillery goes up on my list and I will try to find some other expressions to
    try. This one will set you back about 67 EUR.
    • Nose
      The sturdy and fresh nose bursts with fresh wood shavings and gooseberries.
      Honey and an especially big sweetness take control. Apricots and mandarin and
      even some banana. The longer I leave it, the more exotic it becomes. A bit of
      eucalyptus appears after a few minutes. Nice development. Pleasant surprise. Leave
      it for fifteen minutes and it actually becomes spectacular!
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is slightly oily and juicy on southern fruits:
      apricots again, like when the juice drips from your chin. Citrus is present, as
      well as a bit of brown sugar. Acacia honey. Wonderfully piquant, thanks to
      pepper and cinnamon. Does not need water whatsoever. The oak also shines
      through. What a nice balance. Lo and behold, this is a complex whisky!
    • Finish
      The long finish is sweet, spicy, slightly drying and wonderfully
      perfumed. Wow!
