  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 86 points Moderator

    Not bad but probably lacking a bit of punch as it's a bit weak towards the end
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fruity notes, pineapple, mango, peaches, hints of vanilla, cigars, whiffs of smoke, pepper, cloves, hints of old books - really not bad
    • Taste
      87 87
      Oily, fruity, subtle sweetness, peaches, apples, pears
    • Finish

      Medium long, warm, little sweetness and fruitiness left, not drying

  2. alex..w..fan did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Mortlach 19yo 1969/1989 (45%, Gordon & MacPhail for Intertrade) Colour: gold. Nose: starts on fresh oranges and tangerines plus a little malt and café latte and gets then a little farmier (wet straw, wet grains). Slight meatiness and hints of wet papers, cardboard. Pleasant nose but we wouldn’t say this is very complex. Mouth: rather powerful, malty, grainy and orangey, displaying little complexity just like on the nose. Caramel and nougat plus white pepper and apple compote with quite some sugar. Finish: medium long, balanced, honeyed, a tad meaty and smoky now. Comments: certainly good but a little middle-of-the-road, which was quite unusual with Intertrade whiskies. Reminds me of older versions of Highland Park 12. SGP:442 – 81 points.
