Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1930 UD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 95.47 points

  1. Hirschi scored this whisky 97 points Expert Senior

    Had the rare luck to get hold of 2 bottles of the substance in 2013. One was shared, the other was used in a Mortlach Tasting in April 2014. From my memory: nose and taste - deep, complex, heavy, almonds, Christmas stollen, liquid marzipan, spicy wood - probably the deepest malt I've ever had in a glass. Probably an ex-bourbon barrel as no sherry notes are recognizable, no meat, no leather and also no sulfur, no typical Mortlach, but just fantastic. Happy who could try this great fabric. One empty bottle is in Pit's whisky museum, the other one at home. I'm not sure if everyone who gave this rating really tried the material, especially those with the slightly poorer ratings. It was probably a private barrel for a lord of the castle in the Rhineland, as the bottle suggests a winemaker rather than whisky. A grapevine was depicted on the seal and the bottle is more of a typical wine bottle. The bottles were supposedly the tip for a construction worker who is said to have done renovations there. I don't know if that's true.

    An average of 95.7 points from 22 members surely there is a tasting note somewhere, I would be interested in reading one for a whisky that old for sure if there is one out there?

    thanks for the tasting note Hirsch, appreciated, sounds like a great dram.
