Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 15-year-old GM

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.67 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    oh - blatant part - which has something, very independent, tastes really delicious even if the notes isolated that does not give way, vllt must have a her too short over 50 ¬ is really good stuff for the bored advanced
    • Nose
      Beef tenderloin with lovage, tender burned match note, garlic, removes oranges, a bit of citrus, some wax, Burgol shoe polish, new leather jacket, sweet - spicy sour oak, bay leaf, with a bit of aeration: feels slightly like carbonated nose - orange soda with Eggpups (smell of sulfur like hard-boiled eggs)
    • Taste
      sourish - spicy fresh oak with young fresh bitterness, chili tingling, wax on the tongue, slightly viscous, vanilla, intense lemon, caramel, toffee - beautiful sweetness mixes with a fresh spicy oak, tingles the palate - with some chewing matches with tendency to light dirty sulfur
    • Finish
      strong intense spicy lemony, sweet, dry - lemon becomes tangerine, tangerine peach ... stays long on the tongue, wood, wax spices

  5. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It has been very worthwhile to try this whisky again, like the Linkwood 15yo I have been able to rediscover this Mortlach several times.
    • Nose
      Horrible Eiernote, but soon lays down. Orange lemonade, unripe apples, unripe plums, burning matches
    • Taste
      Large portion of white currant jam, wood smoke, soft, fruity, oranges, horse stable
    • Finish
      Briefly Olorosonoten flash, slightly dry, again light wood smoke with immature plum

  7. spigray scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    a nice dram, quite quaffable.
    86/100
    • 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.

  8. pianoman scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Dry, slightly dusty. Sherry, orange peel, some wax. Campari orange, tingling lemonade.
    • Taste
      Baked apples, sherry, honey, caramel. White chocolate, hazelnuts and some pepper. Medium.

  10. St. Pauli scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A solid dram with a good price/quality ratio. 
    • 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.
