Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1996 McG

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.33 points

  1. Sir Provenance did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Original Tasting NotesGristy and barleyed initially on the nose, it develops more softly to a sweet spiced character, with damp freshly cut grass - and with later barley sugar. Its palate is clean, still with a spicy tang, carrying also a more distinct barley sugar quality - running to a finish, drier than anticipated, still spiced, which then tails sweeter again. ( F )
