  1. alex..w..fan did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Mortlach 23 yo 1990/2013 (46%, Hart Bros, Finest Collection, first filled sherry butt) Colour: gold with bronze hues. Nose: I’m not overly sensitive to the slightest amount of sulphur, and I even find some sulphury profiles really lovely, but this one is just too much on struck matches, I’m sorry. Add to that notes of cooked asparagus, cabbage and leek, and there, you have it. Mouth: works better, but it’s strange. Burnt caramel and overcooked fruits and pie, burnt raisins, something bizarrely mineral and gingery (Schweppes?) In short, not my cup of malt at all. Finish: rather long and relatively nicer, on orange cake. Comments: these things happen with sherry butts. Also a matter of personal limits, I guess. SGP:372 - 49 points.
