    Okayish Mortlach. Not the best I've come across, a little nervous between revealing the bourbon or the sherry maturation instead of offering unity.
    • Nose
      Caramel, blossoms, grass, a hint of tobacco and earth. Then it gets fruity, with tangerines and dried fruit. 
    • Taste
      The sherry becomes more dominant, with dry fruit (dates, but also big sweet raisins), oxidising grapes, and some slightly meaty notes.
    • Finish
      Again grassier, fresher, but still with the sherry influence. This time it is more on plums and red fruit. Pepper and clove as well.

    missing the fruit in the finish, burnt cinder blocks remains for a while
    • Nose
      oranges, some spices
    • Taste
      dark fruit, some bitterness
    • Finish
      medium, burnt wood

  8. p4blo scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A very nice whisky for the price.
    • Nose
      The sherry influence is very clear, but the bourbon casks are apparent as well. Dark fruits as usual plus a dose of nuts and almonds. Some vanilla notes are there too.
    • Taste
      Quite dry and not so fruity as the nose would suggest. Figs, dates and nuts, a bit of spices from the wood, vanilla, honey, citrus fruits.
    • Finish
      Medium long, mouthwarming, a bit spicy and very fruity again.
