Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1997 MMcK

- Fairly simple
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.
- Aroma: Apple, vanilla, citrus aromas, fruity, vinous, sweet, a touch of orange marmalade, vinous;
Taste: vanilla, sweetness, strong wine, apple, oak, caramel, oranges, full, fruity, milk chocolate, traces of smoke, sherry ?;
Finish: Longer, with vanilla, and licorice, cherries;
Conclusion: Great, you can have good. The age is noticeable in the softness, PLV ok, an interesting Speysider!
- A tad more alcoholic in the nose as the other Mortlach from Càrn Mòr, but very alike.
It’s a bit more punchy and sharp as the other one.
A whiff of smoke gives it a bit more body and finish.
A very nice and fruity Mortlach, but I liked the 1996 a lot more.
