    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 620 bottles from cask 4235
    We all know how well Mortlach matures in European oak. This example comes from a refill butt and is a sun-bleached polished mahogany colour. It has mighty beading and a mellow nose. A classic ex-sherry butt nose: cake mix, with plenty of peel, glace cherries and butter and a shake of allspice; a hint of eggs and a development towards treacle toffee. Water increases the eggy/sulphury note for a moment, but this blows off to be replaced by baked apples. A big, smooth mouthfeel, at once mouth-drying and mouth-cooling; sweet to start, then the tannins kick in and it becomes coffee-bitter, with lingering treacle toffee. A perfect digestif.
