Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1999 JB

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose fairly light and flowery at first, it gives spices and a little honey, but not very generously. With a little patience: more honey and caramel. Gluttony, undeniably. In the mouth, powerful enough for its 43 ° with beautiful spices, not too dosed. Malt, sugar. A hint of alcohol? No, only in the first sip. The finale is linked with the spices found in the mouth and ends with a subtly bitter note. Beautiful length, beautiful presence, fruity gourmand. I thought I would add some water. At 43 °, I should have been content with a drop or two: the nose became more cluttered, with an unexpected note of brandy, as for the mouth, it became a little soft knee, more very round, a bit hollow, with against an evocation of apple pie. But it's my fault.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Nothing about WB, so it is unknown. Repair this omission quickly because the proposed selling price is a superb deal.
    • Nose
      Powerful and fleshy. Gourmet notes of stewed fruits (especially pears), candied fruits (raisins), fragrant spices (cinnamon), roasted cereals, vegetal notes (grass and daisies, peppermint). A touch more animal (leather, musky sweat, cooked meat) brings additional weight.
    • Taste
      The mouth is rather thick and oily, almost waxy at times. It reveals itself layer by layer, starting with fruity and spicy notes that combine floral notes and enrich with earthy and animal notes. Slight bitterness in the finish.
    • Finish
      Rather long it leaves an impression of persistent thickness. Touch of earthy smoke ?.
