    • Nose
      Caramel, burst sugar, vanilla, raisins, sweet apples, a tiny hint of leather.

      Warm mouthfeel, very well balanced. Mouth coating with some fat. Raisins and vanilla. candies, sweet lemon, burnt sugar, cigar leaves, some notes of grass on the background. 
    • Finish
      middle long to long finish where bitterness goes together with the raisins.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Mortlach 1994/2012 (55.2%, Malts of Scotland, sherry hogshead, cask #MoS 12059, 235 bottles) Colour: amber. Nose: this one’s ridden with old walnuts, leather, black chocolate, wood smoke, and autumn leaves at first sniffs, before it gets fatter and fruitier at the same time. Corinth raisins, prunes, figs, old Sauternes, apple compote… A little bizarre, going from oloroso style to Pedro Ximenez within fifteen seconds. With water: the leather comes out more again. Mouth (neat): fat and sweet, with a leathery background. I find molasses, blackberry jam, some welcome notes of bitter oranges, then a little Demerara sugar and, funnily, hints of pineapple flambéed. With water: once again, its leathery side stands out. Cinnamon, coriander… Finish: quite long, well balanced, with orange zests and tobacco. Grassier aftertaste, with hints of sugar cane. Wood smoke again. Comments: the sherry does not dominate – I mean, not totally. Very very good, I think, if maybe a little raw. –Ish. SGP:652 - 86 points.

  7. Toffie76 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Although pleasant, the dram did not seduce me. Lack of depth.
    • Nose
      Sherry, heavy. Caramelized sugar. Cotton candy limit. A lot of fruity, a little loaded. Apricots, fruit compote. Ripe bananas, grape figs, ripe apples and pears. Grand Marnier. A little rough.
    • Taste
      The mouth is really smooth and round. Not very lively, a real lack of complexity. Too linear. Average length
    • Finish
      Light persistent bitterness.

  8. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The nose is really good, complex and promising. The rest is very standard and the final is quite disappointing. A Mortlach not bad as a whole but dispensable in my opinion. Sherry is not overwhelming.
    • Nose
      A mixture of stuff jumps to the nose quite abruptly. Alcohol first, which clearly dominates. But he settles quickly to make way for a basket of exotic fruits sprinkled with kirsch. It's pretty disconcerting for a profile meant to be sherry. A little caramel and coffee then come off, a touch of mocha. After aeration, very dry and dusty wood. A complex nose where a lot of things happen.
    • Taste
      Alcohol does not hurt, phew! Liquid brown sugar, an explosion of caramelized sweet spices, a little tobacco. A fairly basic mouth borrows paw '' sherry '' without being a '' sherry monster ''.
    • Finish
      Ultra short. The mouth dries up suddenly and all the flavors disappear. Hey ho, that leaves you hungry!

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample from Erik.
    • Nose
      Apple, raspberry, candy cane, vanilla, cherry, orange, almond and plum. With water also caramel and a little spice.
    • Taste
      Raspberry, cherry, candy cane, citrus, apple, raisin, orange, cinnamon and nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Raspberry, apple, cinnamon, raisin, vanilla, caramel and plum. A whiff of rubber in the end.
