Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 2002 McG

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.00 points

  1. zinaf scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The best thing about this Mortlach is its body - think, sticky, oily - absolute delight in the mouth.
    Other than that it has the nice dirty, farmy and meaty Mortlach profile.
    Great maturity for this age. I am considering second bottle now.

    Original Tasting Notes

    Round, sweet and full of toffee, spices, citrus and barley on the nose. Its palate is even more vanilla caramel in style with soft burnt/crunchy sugar drifting through - leading to a warmly spiced finish with more of that fudginess apparent. ( F )

  3. Igor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Curiously enough, it weakens with the course of time, or shall I put - turns for the worse, deteriorates even. So, do not rush it, take your time. Be wary nonetheless about the treacherous nature of it.
    • Nose
      Soft fruit, strawberries, blackberry, cranberry, yeast, cherry compote, ether, plums, fermented cherries, winey claret notes.
    • Taste
      Viscid, thick, dense body. Oak barrel brought sufficient tannins, dry notes of walnut, astringent mouthfeel, good though, spice, citric relish.
    • Finish
      Eau de cologne, briny, pickle, tartness, bitter orange, tea, astringency, zest, lemon.
