    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Mortlach 32 yo 1962/1994 (42.8%, Cadenhead, Original Collection) As usual with Cadenhead, we’re extremely happy to learn that it was an ‘oak cask’. You never know, could have been sequoia or baobab. Not to mention chestnut of course (not joking here). Colour: gold. Nose: there’s some magic in these old whiskies, magic that’s not easily found in the newer bottlings if you ask me. Magic, in my book, means that you first get a ‘whole’ picture, not just a collection of aromas. And magic goes on when the spirit unfolds and keeps changing for a long time. As I already wrote on numerous occasions, a movie-malt vs a picture-malt. In this case, I’d quote an evolving resinous side (almonds, pinesap, chartreuse, pitch, motor oil) and many soft spices and essential oils such as pine again, benzoin, almond oil… Also wax polish, old wine, rancio for sure, Japanese seaweed, crushed nuts (or halva)… Really, it’s a movie, it’s not easy to describe. Mouth: all right, it’s a little drying and too oaky. Okay, done that, but then, there are lovely notes of citrons, cough syrup (it’s certainly quite medicinal), old liqueurs, drops of the tar liqueurs we had the other day (remember?), then cinnamon, mint lozenges, liquorice, bergamots (earl grey tea), a little lemongrass, a touch of metal, a mushroomy side, some cocoa powder… But really, it’s a global feeling, not just a collection of descriptors. Finish: short and drying, not this baby’s best side, definitely. Comments: imperfect – thus no 90-material – but this old baby tells you many stories. Moving, in several senses of the word. SGP:372 - 89 points.
