Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1990 DR
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points
- Will certainly come back and add to these notes. I was lucky enough to score a 750ml bottle of this, and it brings me something new each time I approach it. Lovely dram.
Slight hints of fruit.
Buttery. Heavy buttery (coating) mouthfeel.
Long delicious finish.
- from a friend
Some oxidative sherry and light red fruit notes but it's all pretty
soft and subtle strawberry, jammy baked goods. Vanilla and chocolate
malt. A slightly salty note as well. Peaches, apricots, and other soft
fruit in a salad (pears, perhaps). Lemon and waxy zest and wood. Evolves
a bit with air, and some floral notes develop. (with water) More on
pineapple and a mix of 10-15 year old Sauternes with a light a floral
(sour) Petite Champagne cognac. Sorry for being so referential, but when
the whisky fits...
Cool fruit salad, honey, malt, black baking spices, pepper, lemon, and a
bit of spicy ginger in honey. Big wood. Much more direct here, less
fruit, and little sherry. (with water) Ah, rather malty and smoothed
out. Wood's still there, but it's not out of whack. Swims well.
Decent, not spectacular, and not problematic. It's enjoyable and there's
not too much left to add. Pretty much the definition of a 'B' to me.
