4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.43 points

  1. Cobo scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Red fruits, vanilla, nuts, creamy, a tiny bit of umami notes, plum cake, cinnamon and an earthy note.

    Sweet, fruity, typical meaty Mortlach aromas,

    Long and satisfying finish, with a bit of peat

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Does not have so much character, not much Mortlach in itself, could have been a Strathisla, Sherry-Granto of round Rothes, but at least fuller, older, but round sherry, the only as it should be for me only on departure slight Bitternoten gets, but pleasant.
    • Nose
      Extremely dark honey and red baked apple, beautiful oak notes, Christmas stollen, cinnamon, a few nuts in between and orange peel, bitter orange, all very round and typical sherry screaming, milk chocolate and toffee
    • Taste
      Full and creamy, orange marmalade, crumble cake with apple pieces baked in it, very round and pleasant oak drizzled with dark honey, milk chocolate lasts long, but also lighter apricot jellies in between, toffee in rivers, some grapefruit, all but very round for a Mortlach, the dirty notes some of them are missing, but sometimes pleasant
    • Finish
      Drying, more bitter chocolate now, coffee and grapefruit, dark honey still in between and orange peel with hazelnuts and dark malt

  4. Lorion scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I like it very much. Really great nose and exciting palate, all the finish could be a little more telling. 88 points are still!
    • Nose
      Red Apple. Aromatic oak. Creamy and nutty. Fruit cake, exactly apple pie with cinnamon. Sweet pastry. The nuts can be identified as hazelnuts. Add to that a subliminal sherry character, which cleverly hides and is hardly noticed.
    • Taste
      Sweet and tingling. Very oily and creamy is the mouthfeel. The apple pie comes through fully, the oak hesitates for a few moments, but then comes after. It is aromatic and present, but by no means dominant. Chocolate pastry comes in the after-taste.
    • Finish
      Medium long, subtly bittersweet. Hardly sweet, rather dry.
