Mortlach 16 yo 1998/2015 (48.8%, Ceder & Tjeder, Dram Good Whisky No.2, 1st fill barrel, cask #11016, 270 bottles) Colour: light gold. Nose: so very Mortlach! Graphite, sulphur (stones or powder, not burnt), citrons, linseed oil, vanilla, wet clothes, hay, sour dough, leaven… The most characterful of them all, for sure. Mouth: ah this is pretty perfect. Oranges and honey sauce dropped onto some kind of resinous oils, pink grapefruits, fresh croissants (no need to sing the Marseillaise, no worries), lemon, angelica, gooseberries… The strength is perfect. Finish: rather long, with a tropical side. Mangos joining in the dancing fun. A touch of vanilla in the aftertaste, and even a little salt. Comments: superb Mortlach au naturel, without any obvious (and vulgar) wood – even if this was first fill, it’s ‘light’ first fill. What a distillate! Almost 90 points in my book – but this isn’t quite Christmas yet, is it. SGP:551 - 89 points.
