Tasting Notes

Details

Nose: Sweet fruits; Melon, pineapple, peach and buckets of orange saturated in honey syrup. There are mild herbal scents, perhaps green tea with a backbone of gentle cinnamon spice and hints of coconut and vanilla. Palate: Unusually fruity and less meaty than what you would perhaps normally expect from this 2.7 times distilled Speyside malt. Juicy honeydew melon, Seville oranges and nectarines stewed together in a fruit cocktail. Finish: Once the fruitiness subsides creamy vanilla sponge notes conclude this beautiful whisky.

Mortlach Single Malt Whiskey


Mortlach Distillery was established in 1823 on the banks of the River Dullan in the Speyside whisky region. Mortlach is equipped with wooden worm tubs, six stills of assorted shapes and sizes and three spirit safes in order to run a unique two and a half times or partial triple distillation process. Official bottling of Mortlach single malt are few, however, independent bottlers recognise the great quality of Mortlach whisky particularly following long maturation in sherry casks. Gordon & MacPahil released a stunning bottling of 70 year old Mortlach single cask malt whisky distilled in 1938 and matured in a single sherry hogshead until bottling in 2009.
