    A lot fruitier than WB ID 65822 and 66877. More full-bodied, "finished" and "rounded" whisky. Good casks! Tasted head to head on 08/04/2017 in a Mortlach 1997 SV "sister casks" tasting: 7170+7171 (WB ID 65822), 7172+7173 (WB ID 66877), 7179+7180 (WB ID 71944) and 7168+7169 (WB ID 78057). This one clearly came out as the #1. Thanks KayMeertens, Daan Tje and WhiskyOss for swapping samples with me!  
    • Nose
      Wow, very fruity! Oranges, apricot, peach - that kind of stuff. Icing sugar galore, with honied vanilla. Very faint hint of almond. 
    • Taste
      Sweet vanilla; beeswax, creamy. Cinnamon and nutmeg spiciness coming through. Green apples with lemons and oranges. 
    • Finish
      Spiciness taken over by sweet tones again: vanilla, beeswax. A hit of anise or menthol.

  6. The Macallan scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A very good Mortlach and worth the effort to get one.
    • Nose
      shaded rich notes, very present but in a controled way, fruity, later more sherry, old oranges and chocolate
    • Taste
      Firm, oranges, sherry, sweet, chocolate, full of flavor and mouth coating
    • Finish
      Woodspices, warming, lingers for quite a long time especially on the tongue.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    An absolute bang-for-your-buck whisky! Compared it to casks 7168 + 7169 and 7172 + 7173 and this one is the best one by far, much fruitier and waxier.
    • Nose
      Very aromatic with a clear bourbon influence. Vanilla custard, lime, candied orange, honey, peach and caramel.
    • Taste
      Orange, honey, vanilla, peach, citrus, cookie, almond, beeswax, caramel and spice.
    • Finish
      Orange, peach, honey, vanilla, marzipan, beeswax and caramel.
