Mortlach, that can act perfectly as an aperitif. Around 55 EUR, which I find to
be very friendly priced.
The nose is very
fresh and quite fruity. Gooseberries, young apples, hints of lime. Pretty
herbal. Freshly cut grass, floral elements as well. Some marzipan, but in the back. Seville oranges appear after a few
moments, as does some woodsmoke. Not bad, but not earth shattering either.
It is quite light
bodied, but immediately very sweet. Some vanilla, apples, gooseberries and
marzipan – so a fine continuation of the nose. The woodsmoke is louder, making
this a pretty spicy whisky. Quite punchy, in fact.
The finish is medium
long and sweet.
