Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 2002 DL

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.50 points

  1. Totoro scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    You almost might mistake this for refill-sherry maturation due to the sulphury distillate character. Nice nose, bright and fizzy palate, disappointing finish.
    • Nose
      Citric, yeasty, grassy, floral, with some sulphury weight lurking behind all that lightness. Yes: this is Mortlach alright. Young, but very nice.
    • Taste
      Sweet, mellow start, then the acidity hits and things get quite prickly, even with water added. Keeps on rushing forward in a straight line of juicy, fizzy citrus right to the end. Midway through, some pleasant, not-even-all-that-tired (actually, rather prickly) American oak joins in, along with the the accompanying vanillin. Simple, but good.
    • Finish
      Zesty, punchy, and citric, with a slight burn and weirdly, less oak than was promised on the palate. The weakest part of the experience and a bit of a letdown.

    Totally tasty, yummy!
    • Nose
      Solid (red) fruit flavors and a distinct note of honey, marzipan, almonds, sugar, caramel and more fruit;
    • Taste
      Honey, sweet-and-sweet, soft, sugary, caramelized almonds;
    • Finish
      Pleasantly spicy, medium in length;

  3. Mascht scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior
