    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Mortlach 1993/2011 (51.2%, Duncan Taylor for Men O'Quaich, sherry octave, cask #796864)  Colour: deep gold. Nose: something else, and that’s the sherry. Raisins, milk chocolate, praline, some light pipe tobacco (not the heavy black stuff)… While Mortlach’s fattish/mineral profile’s singing in the background. Not unpleasant, this! With water:  a bit more sand and earth, a bit more cardboard and sawdust. Not water’s best friend ever (that would be pastis!) Mouth (neat): praline and smoky halva! That’s the wee cask, and indeed it reminds me of some super-young American craft whiskies. In theory, I shouldn’t like this. In practice, I do. How bad is that, Doctor? Ginger cookie, pumpernickel, speculoos, caraway liqueur… All that. With water: swims better on the palate. Creamy marzipan, chocolate, almond oil, vanilla oil (should that exist), and wood smoke. Finish: rather long, oily, marzipany. Comments: oh I hate it that I like this! SGP:462 - 87 points.
