  1. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Not too complicated, but not too easy. 84 points
    • Nose
      In the nose beautiful caramel notes with a hint of citrus flavor. Then a little furniture polish.
    • Taste
      The taste is fresh apples. Here comes more lemon than in the nose.
    • Finish
      The finish is typical of Mortlach. Very difficult for me to describe. A distillery with recognition value. Forgive me, but I can not describe it as well as some others.

  3. ASWhisky scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    As is so often the case with non-smoky glen or whisky-like whiskys, I consider the finish as the best
    not so easy to judge a sweet whisky
    if these flavors are not pleasant to you
    the nose was too dominated by the sweetness of the love apple
    basically this has continued in the mouth in a watered down form
    the most beautiful balance of aromas was found in the finish
    • Nose
      Butterscotch, or as I would say red apple of green apples
      this aroma was so strong that others were hard to spot
      A hint of vanilla and green grasses
    • Taste
      very sweet and somewhat sprightly, sugar cubes in forest honey, oak, caramel, herbs, vanilla, wood > Peel of green apple, some dark cocoa
    • Finish
      Medium long, green apple peel, bitter oak flavors, sweet notes of honey

  4. Wild Thing scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Pleasantly fruity background. Raisins and scent of fruit cake, citrus fruits. Vanilla and caramel on the sweet side.
    • Taste
      Creamy, fruity, malty and sweet. And then comes a spiciness of ginger & pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium long and spicy.
