thijs100 gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Malted barley with a hit of leather, cigar tobacco and a whisper of sulphur. A touch of lemon yoghurt, accompanied by faint notes of fudge. Some shiitake mushrooms, as well as lightly smoked paprika powder.

Taste

Plenty of smoke and spices (cinnamon, cloves, lots of pepper). Slightly medicinal and earthy too, as well as a good amount of bitter lemon. This is a fun whisky. Never boring.

Finish

Medicinal and earthy touches, with finally some mushroom.

Comments

You can never fault Mortlach for being generic. This bottling too has a pretty unique profile, with a very interesting medicinal side to it. Not everybody will like this funky stuff, but I sure enjoyed it.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Leather, sigar boxes, petrolium and mushrooms. Citrus - lemon, pan cake mix, coconut and wax. This Mortlach is less fruity.

Taste

Smoke, bitter like hops in IPA beers and citrus - lemon. Rubber, wax and potatoes. 

Finish

Creamy vanilla, spices - pepper, later a bit drying and nuts - walnuts. With water Fisherman's friends.

Comments

Compared with Mortlach 1995 IM 90271, Mortlach 1994 CA and Mortlach 1994 MoS #16004.
