Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1990 SV

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.39 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: wine, nuts, some wood. Pretty deep (but I already had better). Very spicy and very strong on the palate. Pretty thick texture. Final long, bitter, marked by sherry. With water, he "breathes" a little more, with wood and caramel. And a zest of lemon on the palate? Age has not diminished its vivacity. Enthusiasm 3/5

  2. aphex scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose : Light sherry nose (prune, dried fruits) with flowery notes and not much.

    Mouth : Alcoholic, spicy, oaky. There are some fruits and a sweetness too.

    Finish : Long, warming and spicy.

    Good but too simple and unbalanced.

    Imbalance.
    • Nose
      Alcohol very present, even after adding water. Roasted cereals, yeast.
    • Taste
      Still imbalanced on alcohol, spicy but spicy. Hard to perceive anything else. A plant side develops in the second part of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Medium, always marked by alcohol. Some traces of dried fruits.

  4. Jeep51 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Very disappointing. Closed and imbalance.
    • Nose
      Not very expressive Very light sherry more on rancio and nuts (hazelnut). Really not chatting. At aeration, becomes surprisingly more floral.
    • Taste
      Lightly wooded, leather and coffee. We find rancio and some spices (cinnamon, cardamom). The alcohol is still quite present and burning.
    • Finish
      Long and hot. Spicy, raisins.

  5. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    TASTING NOTE (LMDW): Color: old gold with slightly amber highlights. Nose: fine, nuanced. At first, unctuous notes of toffee and chestnut cream rub shoulders with heady flowers (lily, lavender), followed by candied fruit (plum, mirabelle), dried fruits (dates, prunes) and dried fruits. sweet spices (pink berry, ginger) Particularly harmonious, the aromatic palette finds its point of anchorage in full malting area. Palate: rich, affirmed. Its rancio notes evoke an oloroso sherry. The dried fruits are obviously part (apricot, fig, almond), but there are also traces of salt. It takes as a dimension more exotic (very ripe banana) and more oily. Vegetable notes (pipe tobacco) punctuate the finish with great elegance. Final: vivacity and firmness, that is his motto. Based on an unalterable distillate, it allows malted barley to express itself as it sees fit. From this spine escape salted butter caramel, limes and noble spices (cardamom) .The retro-olfaction is chocolate and the empty glass is irremediably reglissé and malted. Comment: an absolute classicism This version, in addition to the malty and chocolatey notes inherent to its aging in sherry casks, gives a great elegance to the slightly peaty and smoky character of this magnificent Speyside vintage.
