  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Typically a Mortlach, and a very good one indeed! 

    it has it all, metallic and sulphury body, quite untamed. It starts fruity and spicy but evolves in the mouth, every sip you get something new. After a while some floral flower notes appear even.

    the finish is long and lingering.

  2. MaltMartyr scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    I believe that it improves with a bit of water. I definitely get the pepper and cinnamon notes. The body and finish is worth noting. Its sherry laden.

    TASTING NOTE of LMDW:

    Appearance : burnished gold with glints of topaz.
    Nose : full-bodied, unctuous. The initial nose is splendid and radiant, with a delicate salinity superimposed on citrus zest, aromatic plants (camomile), heady florals (lily, iris) and candied fruit (apple, plum). It gradually takes on a chocolatey, roasted (pipe tobacco, coffee) and spicy (cardamom, cloves) character. With remarkable depth, it continues with notes of saffron, accompanied by a hint of tar and rancio.
    Palate : lively, precise. Delicious sweet brioche attack. Exotic fruit (pineapple, passion fruit, mango) follow with abundant energy. This continues into the mid-palate, which becomes remarkably mineral (schist, slate), roasted (tea) and mentholated. Very full-bodied, the end of the palate evokes rum with heady scents of geranium.
    Overall : long, silky. Velvety, oily tannins coat the taste buds, while oranges flood the palate with sweet, tangy juice. Still with the same freshness, it grows increasingly floral (rose petals) and herbaceous (courgette fritters). Divinely chocolatey and silky, the retro-nasal olfaction has incredible length. The empty glass wavers between aromatic plants, cinnamon and bourbon vanilla.
