Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1992 DL

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    True Beast

    The absolutely top notch malts from Douglas Laing are bottled in their XOP – Extra Old Particular – range. This Mortlach 1992 slept 22 long years on a sherry butt that still yielded 225 bottles at a cask strength of no less than 57,1% ABV. Where is my water?

    Deep sherry on the nose! Those who know me know what I mean. All kinds of dark (and not so dark) fruits like plums, strawberry, krieks, berries of all kinds, but also wood and rancio. Tobacco leafs. For a moment I am thinking of aged port. Vanilla, cinnamon and a hint of chocolate. Wonderful with capital W. A touch drying, but that is easily forgiven.

    Pretty oily and mouth coating. Again all kinds of dark fruit (raisins and cherries in the lead), upholstered with blood oranges and nuts. Quite spicy with nutmeg, candied ginger, cinnamon and a pinch of chili peppers. Complex indeed, but just a tad too dry to my taste.

    The finish is very long on cherries, oak and tobacco and leaves the mouth parched. Spicy finale.

    A monster from Mortlach. This is the true Beast of Dufftown. Around 250 and 300 EUR. Eat your heart out, official 25 Year Old… Thanks, Chris.

    Zomg... This is my jam. My favourite distillery, Mortlach! The true queen of the Speyside dragons.

    Unapologetic for the heavy Sherry, and brutish palate... but it's so immense and so worth it!
    • Nose
      The nose fills with sweet PX Sherry, intense malt, bricks and leather. Much leather and pork fat, huge body. Rich sweets.
    • Taste
      The palate... Oh my God... Huge, malt and tire fires. Sharp wood and Sherry cake, mint and roasted pork shoulder.
    • Finish
      The finish is ...I dunno how to say this. Immensely long, huge oak spice and sweet candies.

  7. Thermidor scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A beautifully coloured whisky, and a good one too, but considering the price I expected a little more oomph. 

  8. bennythemonster scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Mortlach 1992-2014, 22 years, 57.1% alc.
    Bottler: Douglas Laing (XOP)
    Removal: sherry barrel
    Region: Speyside, Scotland

    Nose: vanilla cream with cherries, baked plums, plum cake and winter spices, some oak. In the background are soft fruits, sugared strawberries and very ripe raspberries. Quite a little milk chocolate removed. Palate: Also fruity and sweet, but significantly spicier. Chocolate fondue with fruits, Christmas stollen, sweet cherries and nuts. The oak wood note completes pleasantly.

    Finish: Long and intense, short pungency of the alcohol. In addition dried fruits, cherries, cocoa, tobacco and wood.

    Conclusion: A round dream of a sherry barrel!

    91/100 points (tasted 2015, ca.260 €)
    Thanks to Andrea Dittrich for the photo and the bottle division
