Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1987 CA
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.36 points
- Pleasant version of Mortlach that needs time to get through which is appropriate for a 30 year old whisky.
Oranges, camphor, the lightest hint of struck match, candied peanuts, caramel, a hint of light florals as well, a hint of white chocolate
White chocolate, citrus zest, some mint appears
Light pepper, nice whiff of smoke, lightly bitter malt, lemon zest, more chocolate
- The nose gives a nice balance of fruit and wood. It's not over oaked. I can smell lemon and grapefruit. Some nice berries, as well. Marzipan, maple syrup. Taste wise, the wood comes through perfectly and not overpowering. Lots of things happening like a banquet. More berries and citrus. A bit of savory. Surf and turf. Lobster along with a side of pork ribs. Also some saffron and chamomile. The finish has almond oil and great oak. Babka, Polish donuts (bakery goods). I'm so glad I bought this bottle. It was worth the money. The wood is perfect. Top quality barrel, great bourbon for such a long aging. Seems maybe to have been a previous hogshead of something really very special from Amerika, and just the right size.
- Fantastic malt. Old bourbon hogsheads bring out some great aromas. Very little bitterness dominates a sweet spice, which I usually appreciate very much. In addition, extremely tasty, the alcohol is only slightly noticeable. 91 points, the pale nose prevents a higher score.
White grapes. Citrus freshness. Macadamia nuts. From the nose super elegant, it does not reveal its age in any way. But a little pale. After a long smell, sweeter, yeasty and vanilla.
With the first sip, his age shows. Much stronger start than the nose would have ever suspected. Complex. Very sweet and great spicy in the mouth all the way to the tip of the nose. Light ginger, beef broth, the Mortlach still comes through easily. Bakery products. Oily
Long with herbaceous notes and mild woody notes. No bitterness to feel. A lot of spice. Nutmeg, pepper, ginger. More dry than sweet.
- [April, 2017] I had a tasting sip at Limburg whisky fair (to small to do a full review) and scored it as a preliminary impression with 89 points. An easy-to-drink dram with a quite complex profile both in the nose and on the palate.
- Offizielle Notes:
Nose: Creamy, minty, fruit coulis, hints of praline and toffee sauce.
Taste: Leather, straw, maple syrup and condensed milk.
Finish: Sweet, crispy cakes, syrup, vanilla and raspberries and white chocolate.
