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.
