Whisky Reviews for Mortlach Batch 4 TBWC

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur


    Another repeat however, this time from TWE show 2017.

    N: With orange honey blossom and sweet lemon besides a plethora of other descriptors, could this beat the previous day’s SMoS Benrinnes [Blog89]?
    T: It’s all here, save for a little sharpness, but water counteracts that greatly.
    F: It’s a bit edgy either way.
    C: The Glenlossie remains on top but there are some noteworthy Brora/Clynelish-esque moments here.Scores a B

  2. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior


    Nose: similar freshness as Batch #3. Pine needles, green bananas and green apples. Some wet limestone and mineral notes in the distance. Unripe peaches. Almonds. A little varnished oak and a subtle metallic edge. The Beast of Dufftown, they say?
    Mouth: creamy and fruity, with (pine)apple, sweet lemon, a little vanilla. A fresh Mortlach again. Light grapefruit bitterness, as well as a chalky note and charred oak.
    Finish: long, quite zesty now. Rubbed lemons, light minerals, pepper and a bit of a Springbank twist.Chiselled, with zesty fruits and a lot of weight but never the meaty profile that we’ve come to expect from Mortlach. Traces of Campbeltown in a sense. I like. Not exactly cheap though...

    N: Clynelish/Brora vibe with lemonade and floury=fimo.
    T: Arrives well. Moves to sweet oaky peat. Rounded. 
    F: Continues well to the end.
    C: A pretty one that becomes more sophisticated with water. I thought this might be an affordable ‘Broralternative’, but it’s still £260 [for 50cl].Scores a B[+]
