Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1984 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.54 points

  1. Lorion scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A nose to fall in love. The palate is a bit too much from the barrel. 89 points.
    • Nose
      Fashionable sherry. Cranberries. Sweet. Cloves, plum jam. Wet, mature wood. Leather. Time brings chocolate, sweet and full of cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Not as cute as expected. Slightly acidic, then spice up the oak. Wood crowded in cherry juice. Tobacco sounds. Modriges leather and fermented cherries in the Nachschmecken.
    • Finish
      Medium long, woody dry. Some furry plum.

  2. Deloti scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sherry, pepper, dried oranges. 
    • Taste
      Very unbalanced. oak stands out over other flavours. Strong bitter notes followed by orange zest and sherry then goes back to wood. Body is rather weak.  
    • Finish
      Drying and dusty.

  3. DunklerRabe scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    The nose is very lovely with the expected sherry influences, fruity and a note of beeswax.
    Taste is dominated by some very unbalanced oak. I was surprised how bitter and oaky it is. Too much for my taste.

    Haven't made up my mind on a rating yet. I will do that later, maybe I just wasn't in the right shape. At the moment I would say it is more like a 80 than a 90.

    edit:

    It is not that bad, but I still think it spent a bit too much time in the cask!
