    Mortlach 17 yo 1995 (50,2%, Asta Morris for Fulldram 2013, AM 022, 314 btl.)

    Nose: juicy fruits that grow stronger over time. Garden fruits at first (apple blossom), gooseberries, after a while also pineapple and mandarin. Cooked banana. Some vanilla cake and ginger. Faint mineral notes. Mouth: malty start, but again plenty of fruit flavour, both fresh and candied. Pineapple, apple, lemon, orange. Also a marzipan / frangipane note. Hints of candy sugar. Finish: still sweet, also more spices and fresh oak now.

    An atypical Mortlach (although several other bourbon expressions from the same period exist) but atypical is a compliment here. Slightly ‘modern’ but bright and fruity drinker’s whisky. The AM house style? Around € 70. Most bottles are reserved for club members, but as usual, QV.ID distributes the remaining bottles.

    Score: 87/100

    This is no ordinary Mortlach, but a very attractive sweet seventeen. I
    should have known, with Bert at the helm. Dangerously quaffable. Around 70 EUR,
    but going fast.
    • Nose
      Incredibly fruity nose with all kinds of orchard fruit (apples, pears,
      gooseberries) and even some tropical touches of pineapple, peach, blood oranges
      and apricots. Very sweet with added vanilla and honey. Grain cookies and
      caramel. Hint of mint (love that phrase). All is very fresh. Becomes sweeter if
      you leave it to breath. Creamier too. And absolutely no dirty edge (which is
      something good, by the way) as we are used to from Mortlach.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is feisty and sweet, but even sweeter than on the nose.
      The grain cookies and sweet fruits return in full regalia and are joined by
      hints of almonds, while the apples get a red caramel coating. The spices kick
      in: ginger, white pepper and a pinch of cinnamon. The oak whispers.
    • Finish
      The finish is a nice finale, offering a grain of salt on the death bed.
