Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1990 SV

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.07 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Powerful and peppery. Malt, chocolate. In the mouth, too nagging. Alcohol tends to hide the rest.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  2. Angelos scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    It is not a bad one!
    • Nose
      Quite sweet with wonderful and intense notes of ripe oranges, burnt caramel, a bit sour (hints of vinegar), dry woodspice, gunpowder with some sulphurous character, maybe a bit peat (aromatic one). With water: becomes kind of oriental character with dried figs, there is also kind of rum-style coming up after some time
    • Taste
      Sweet and sour, caramel again, intense oranges again, grapefruit and some citrus notes, some nuttiness (hazelnuts and macadamia), raisins and figs, bit dark chocolate, spices like coriander, bit black pepper. With water: MUCH more balanced, becoming sweeter and "beefier", sourness fades away slowly
    • Finish
      Quite long with some zest,  tannins from the oak (not really bitter despite the 23 years in the cask)
