    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Mortlach 50 yo 1957/2007 'Ping V' (41.7%, Juul's Vinhandel, cask #3019, refill sherry) Colour: gold. Nose: a little similar to the Scott at first sniffing, but even more resinous. Also a little herbal (fresh mint, lemon balm, camomile and verbena), with notes of rosehip and hawthorn teas. Hints of sandalwood, old roses, rubbed orange skin, and finally delicate oaky tones and a little praline. Antique? Not quite, this one is still quite talkative if not nervous. A very classy oldie. Mouth: more wood here, obviously, but also fresh mint, walnuts, strawberry sweets, something like cranberry juice (no kiddin’), liquorice, old pu-erh tea and dried herbs (parsley, coriander). A little woody but not tired! Finish: not too long but balanced, with rather soft tannins and again a little banana, green this time. Cinnamon. Comments: sure there’s quite some wood in this oldie but what’s good news is that it’s never drying or too ‘green’. Moving old whisky, but maybe not quite as thrilling as the famous 50yo’s 1936-1939 by G&M. SGP:361 – 87 points.
