  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Yeah, I like this. It's young and not quite polished yet, but nevertheless attractive and pleasing.
    • Nose
      Surprisingly fruity and ripe, with apple, banana and even a hint of mango. Plenty of vanilla too. However, this also has more of a barnyard appeal. Some sour manure and fairly malty. A wee bit of sulphur.
    • Taste
      Spicy, fruity, meaty. This is quintessential naked Mortlach. Hints of almond, a pinch of pepper, and a light grassiness accompanied by green apples.
    • Finish
      Apple peel, vanilla and banana. Medium in length.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Pear, caramel, white grape and minerals. Slightly puke-y.
    • Taste
      Pear, caramel and almond. Has a dirty touch to it that I'm not too fond of in this case.
    • Finish
      Green apple skin, almond, dry white wine and caramel.

  5. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Compared with Mortlach 1997 WhB #12844 and Mortlach 1989 AD #2789.
    • Nose
      Fresh, grassy, fruity apple and banana . Some wood smoke, vanilla, a hint of peat and pine resin.
    • Taste
      Fruity, mint and floral notes. Leafs, creamy fruits and honey.
    • Finish
      Medium drying with fruits, malty, apple and vanilla.
      With water some chocolate.

    • Taste
      Cigars, peppers, honey, mandarin, very little peat
    • Finish
      long, full, spicy, sweet, touch of peat
