Mortlach! Very pleasantly surprised.
The nose shows a nice
sherry influence with warm caramel, rich spices, gingerbread, candied syrup and
even some roasted coffee beans. Inviting!
The body is light,
the taste honeysweet and spicy. Again, the sherry is very prominent. Black
pepper, ginger and a nice smokiness. Dades, Christmas cake and dried figs.
The finish is even
more drying, with again that attractive trace of smoke.
