Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1998 C&T

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.82 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This Mortlach turned out really well. Excellent freshness with the right amount of fruit.
    • Nose
      Pine needles, lemon grass and sour mats and gummy bears. Grassy notes (straw, hay) with fruits like green apples and freshly cut pears. Everything works really well together.
    • Taste
      Nice oily mouthfeel. Arrives with white pepper and cardamom, but is also fruity with melon, pink grapefruit, fresh tangerines and (candied) banana.
    • Finish
      A long, subtle finish with notes of lemon and mango.

    Serge from Whiskyfun says:

    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.
