  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    No meaty character in this Morlach. Herbal on the nose and hot and spicy on the palate!
    • Nose
      Spirity at first. Camphor. Balsamico vinegar. Heather and hay. Freesias. Also some earthy notes.
    • Taste
      Very fresh and lively. Lemon and lime. Grapefruit. New oak. Toasted almonds. Quite bitter. Some honey as well.
    • Finish
      Long and very dry. Spices of clove and nutmeg. Ginger. Liquorice.
