  3. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    the nose is still quite good; Taste and departure remain but on the track; a pity! I expected more
    • Nose
      again this Mortlach Muff I like very much, but more in the background; Lemon and light wood; Candis sugar; flowery-sweet; over time, the muff disappears completely and it gets sweeter; after the first sip it becomes much sweeter and lemony
    • Taste
      directly very sweet and initially pleasant tingling on the tongue, but which is quickly too intrusive (here, the alcohol does not seem to be well involved); Honey and light wood
    • Finish
      unexpectedly short; sweet honeydew melon and slight bitterness; At the end, there is a subtle oak

  4. Sapiano scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very fruity. Lemon Drops. But then somehow boring.
    After several weeks at the second tasting with some water very grassy or herbaceous. The Bourbon barrel is not forgotten. I increase from 84 to 85 points.

  5. Murxus scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    86/87 pts. Very solid and straight bourbon cask malt, no more and no less.

    2nd: nose (88pts.) much more interesting than taste (83pts.) and finish (84pts.). Together 85pts.
