1 of only 200 bottles from cask no. 3210
From an American oak hogshead with good beading. Autumn gold, almost chesnut in colour. Cooked fruits (slightly waxy) in a jammy sponge cake – apricots and pears to the fore. The jammy note increases with strawberries and a tangy Dundee marmalade and a hint of sweet pipe tobacco in the background. A huge texture in the mouth, sweet and inviting, with dark chocolate and more strawberry jam. Water brings back the waxiness and the fruits become tinned – now pears and melons. A complex, and rare example of well-aged Mortlach from American oak.
