Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 2006 CWC

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.18 points

  1. Jonkers scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    The nose promises (much) more than in the taste comes forward. This whisky is a bit of a setback especially because it is a Mortlach ..... Too bad!
    • Nose
      Fresh. Honey sweets and ripe, tropical fruit (banana but also called "Turkish Fruit"). Cake dough and vanilla.
    • Taste
      A bitterness at the beginning. Then liquorice and some pepper. A bit sour and wry.
    • Finish
      Bitter but then also a bit sweet. The sourness of the taste also comes back in the finish.

    Butterscotch

    There is ample stock of independent Mortlach, to be sure. This Mortlach 2006 comes in the Exclusive Range by the Creative Whisky Company. It is only 8 years old.

    The nose is creamy, almost fatty. The first thing my olfactory memory conjures up is a box full of butterscotch. Like those flat round Quality Street candy, remember? Vanilla custard. It is a bit of a search for fruit, but I do believe I get some lemon and gooseberries and a tiny bit of orange peel. The oak is obvious on the nose, but not in the least disturbing.

    The body is quite light, but tasty. The fruit is a bit rounder and fuller now. Next to citrus I also get some mango and apricots. Good. The wood offers a touch of bitterness, creating a fine balance. Midpalate it gets a surprising candy-like quality, even mildly floral. Did not see that one coming.

    The finish is surprisingly long, a bit smoky and bittersweet.

    Nice, young Mortlach for those with a sweet tooth and fearless of a bit of wood. Around 45 EUR. Thanks, Imanuel.
