  1. recursiewhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Ohh boy, ohh boy, this is extremely lovely. This is why I love whisky. The layering in this whisky is simply superb. It really needs a long, long time in your glass to fully open up (I gave it around 45 minutes). A wee drop of water helps and brings out even more sherry and fresh fruits. I can easily sit with this dram for the whole evening, listening to some good jazz music, the wood burner going and just nose it and sip is very slowly. A big yum!
    The quality of this Mortlach is simply superb.

    I really enjoy this mortlach a lot. A true sherry bomb with lots to discover. Like the nose showing off the dried fruits and the hints of pepper in the mouth. The best whisky I opened lately.
