Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1990 Sc

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.60 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    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.
    • 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.

  2. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

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