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.
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
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
Drying, more bitter chocolate now, coffee and grapefruit, dark honey still in between and orange peel with hazelnuts and dark malt
I like it very much. Really great nose and exciting palate, all the finish could be a little more telling. 88 points are still!
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.
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.
Medium long, subtly bittersweet. Hardly sweet, rather dry.
