Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1995 SMWS 76.85

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.20 points

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Honey gold
    Flavour: Spicy & sweet

    The intriguing nose had candied fruit pieces, lemon, brown
    sugar and crushed mint leaves; also figs and dates, sultana cake. Lime and
    pickles, curry leaves and oxo cubes brought savoury contrasts. The neat palate
    was hot and sweet – treacle toffee and heather honey; Granny Smith apples
    brought freshness. With water, the nose became more floral; poppies,
    elderflower and plum, blackberry jam and maple syrup, banana and walnut oil.
    Also truffle oil and squash. The reduced palate brought thoughts of the
    vineyard – grape skins and must, Poire William eau de vie and black tea tannins
    drying out on the tongue. The distilling water comes from the Conval hills and
    cooling water from the river Dullan.

    Drinking Tip: Enjoying with good friends - preferably at a
    Society venue
