Color
Pale gold
Nose

Rinderbuillion mit Liebstöckel, zarte abgebrannte Zündholznote, Knoblauch, entfernt Orangen, etwas Zitrus, etwas Wachs, Burgol Schuhcreme, neue Lederjacke, süß - würzig säuerliche Eiche, Lorbeer, mit etwas Ablüften: fühlt sich leicht nach Kohlensäure in der Nase an - Orangen Limo mit Eierpups(Schwefelgeruch wie bei hart gekochten Eiern)

Taste

säuerlich - würzige frische Eiche mit junger frischer Bitterkeit, chili prickeln, Wachs an der Zunge , leicht dickflüssig, Vanille, intensive Zitrone, Karamel, Toffee - schöne Süße mischt sich mit einer peppig frischen Eichenwürze, der Gaumen prickelt - mit etwas kauen Zündhölzer mit Tendenz zu leichtem dreckigen Schwefel 

Finish

kräftig intensiv würzig zitronig, süß, trockener werdend - aus Zitrone wird Mandarine, aus Mandarine Pfirsich... bleibt lange an der Zunge, Holz, Wachs Gewürze  

Comments

oh - krasses Teil - der hat was, sehr eigenständig, schmeckt echt lecker auch wenn die Notes isoliert das nicht so hergeben, vllt muss mal einer her zu knapp Ü50€ ist das richtig guter Stoff für den gelangweilten Fortgeschrittenen

Schnappsdrossel gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Amontillad
Nose

Grauenhafte Eiernote, die sich aber bald legt. Orangenlimonade, unreife Äpfel, unreife Pflaume, brennende Streichhölzer

Taste

Große Portion weiße Johannisbeermarmelade, Holzrauch, weich, fruchtig, Orangen, Pferdestall 

Finish

Kurz blitzen Olorosonoten auf, leicht trocken, wieder leichter Holzrauch mit unreifer Pflaume 

Comments

Hat sich sehr gelohnt, diesen Whisky noch einmal zu probieren, wie den Linkwood 15yo habe ich diesen Mortlach auch mehrmals neu entdecken können.

Color
Gin clear
Nose

confectionery with a very light sherry influence, oranges and nuts, apricots, golden raisins. hints of honey. after 10 minutes you can get some oak and whiffs of smoke. unfortunately latter brushes away all the nice orange aromas.

Taste

spicy arrival, the sherry influence is not very obvious. malt, slightly bitter oak and crystallized orange peel. nuts galore.

Finish

medium in length, spicy.

Comments

a nice dram, quite quaffable.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Beefed up orange lemonade is what comes to mind first. That is of course loads of orange peel and juice, This is accompanied by "heavy" honeyed barley, spice and a slight meaty touch that reminds me of leather and oxtail soup. After a while, the wood speaks louder, with vanilla and polished oak. 

Taste

This is a nice combination of the fresh, fruity orange and sweet vanilla. The barley and leather/oxtail soup provide a solid backbone, whereas some whiffs of grass provide depth. Works very well together. 

Finish

Gets a bit more citric towards the end, but that's OK. The beefy notes take over and dominate, along with pepper and cinnamon. Cut grass and almond complement this medium, though pleasant finish. 

Comments

A solid dram with a good price/quality ratio.
