    [August, 2017]  I had a lot of badly sulphury Mortlach over the last year (it seems no active cask management was existent at this distillery throughout the eighties and nineties) and that is why I rather go for non-sherried Mortlach bottlings now.

    ...and what a surprise:  No sulphur this time :-)  This is a very creamy malt almost like a liqueur.  The nose is fresh on grassy and herbal aromas imbedded in stronger wooden notes.  The initial mouthfeel is hot and peppery with some bitter tannic moments but it coats the whole of the mouth nicely.  The taste is quite sweet and very creamy on toffee and herbal flavours.  And of course some wooden notes (like the nose promised) but not too unpleasant.  The finish is long and a little drying on heavier woods.  Some water improves both the nose and the taste and turn the whole dram more mellow - I like it that way better.

    All in all a nice Mortlach to sip but not a spectacular one.  But need all whiskies be spectacular?
