  1. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    He has the bitter Mortlach notes, which I really like. Of course, not everyone likes that. For me actually a delicious malt. However, I still miss something.
    • Nose
      These earthy, musty, mineral-colored Mortlach notes are relatively clear here. Also umami. With dates and figs. Menthol tobacco. Some blueberry. Slightly hinted at maybe a bit of wax.
    • Taste
      Forest honey. Again the dates and figs. But overall less fruit than in the nose. For more sweetness. In addition wet leather and tobacco. Forest floor. Wine cellar. The oak is and brings a moderate spiciness.
    • Finish
      These forest floor and wine cellar associations remain. Oak spice. Dark chocolate.

  2. grinface scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Some really pleasant notes of orange, eucalyptus, tobacco, cherry and even teryaki. But also too much wood in this one for me. Full review in german can be found here: https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/02/26/die-herrschaft-des-holzes/

  5. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A nice and well-developed Mortlach. Maybe it's not surprising, but the quality is good. I've you're overly sensitive for sulphur you might skip this one, but I didn't see it as a problem at all.  
    • Nose
      The signature meat stock tablets (maggi), further lovely on dried fruits (especially dates) but also some orange, honey, and also slighly sulphury (but pleasant in my opinion as it is limited). 
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, a tad salty, in which the dried fruit dominates, but the nutty side of olorosos plays the second violin. Further, there is milk chocolate, some tobacco and still a little sulphur.
    • Finish
      Long, mainly on the dried fruits. Very pleasant, not drying at all.
