Out of stock, join waitlist for early access
One of the very select distilleries allowed to continue production of alcohol during the second world war and equipped with old fashioned condensers called “worm-tubes” used for triple partial distillation – makes Mortlach, established in 1823 quite a unique distillery. This Single malt was distilled in March 2009, left in a refill hogshead to mature and then bottled 10 years later in March 2019 by Douglas Laing.
Rich, balanced. Very Morlach, the first nose offers a slight trace of peat in addition to the rip fruits (pear, plum) that characterize this superb single malt. Increasingly exotic (pineapple, lychee, kiwi), the aromatic palette is becoming more and more complex.
Ample, racy. Honeyed (acacia, heather), the attack in the mouth is also fruity (baked apple) and pastry (tarte Tatin). In the mid-palate, both liquorice and spicy (clove) flavours form the backbone of the taste palette. Note the quality of a particularly full and racy mouthfeel (grain of rice).
Long, silky. Overflowing with dynamism, the start of the finish is superbly malty, herbaceous (alfalfa), vanilla and fruity (Mirabelle plum). Spices (cardamom, nutmeg) gradually ennoble a deliciously medicinal (balm) and earthy aftertaste.
