  1. arlacobu scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Nose is nice and strong. Cannot get a connection but good and meatty. Initially weak but keeps on coming, pretty good for 46%. Has some of the typical meat, maggi and drop associations. Bit bitter at the end. 60 euro's at the local liquor store was worth the gamble.

    A nice, fresh and quaffable dram. The oily Mortlach DNA is clearly present in this mouth coating dram. It’s not complex or layered in any way but just a very fresh and pleasant dram to sip on a warm evening.
    All in all a good summery dram
    • Nose
