Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 10-year-old JB
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.71 points
- Fresh and light on the nose. A little too light, even. Vanilla, wood, sugar, do not compete for first place. In the mouth, it's the same, with a quiet finale on sweet spices. Tasted with cheese with old mimolette that brings out the sweet side in the mouth, more relief.
- A quite fruity Mortlach, far from the original distillate as indicated by D. Broom: powerful, fleshy, heavy, meat broth ....
Fresh, light and not very complex. Barely ripe garden fruits (apricots, apples, pears), some plant aromas (including floral), some vanilla, and a hint of ether that happily melts with aeration.
Light body with a soft and pleasant texture. First notes of fruit not really to point (apricots again) and then hot spices (pepper and ginger), finally a vegetable touch quite simplistic and a bit bitter. In the distance some malty notes bring a little depth.
Medium finish but warm enough, more pleasant than expected thanks to a fusion of rather successful notes of mouth.
- A good little summer whisky, maybe a bit simple. To marry with a Bourdaloue tart with apricots obviously.
Apricots just ripe, a little green wood, acacia honey or flower, it's fresh without being invigorating. A very Speyside nose that gains depth as the glass empties.
Texture very nice, it is a little consistent. We immediately find the young apricots, we can easily keep it in the mouth. The almond is coming slowly. The "second" mouth is on apricot much more mature. Malted notes.
The final between medium and short, always on the apricot. We lose the youth of the nose to gain maturity and a certain warmth really welcome.
