Our first ever exclusive single cask of Mortlach was bottled for us by Hunter Laing, and it is a steal. Bottled at 50% after 11 years maturing in a Refill Hogshead, Ref: HL14889, it is a steal for just $95! Featured on Day 4 of KWM's 2018 Whisky Advent Calendar.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: apple-cinnamon pastries, dried pineapple chunks, vanilla extract and white chocolate bars with cocoa nibbs; silky malty, soft citrus and decadent honey.
Palate: soft, malty, honeyed and sweet; loads of white fruit, sliced pear and more warm apple-cinnamon pastries; fruity, a touch of melon, more tart pineapple and crisp citrus tones; floral vanilla and white chocolate with cocoa nibbs; warming and toasty.
Finish: fresh, malty and honeyed; white and citrus fruits fade slowly along with some spices, warm pastry and raw cocoa.
Comment: I remember when we selected the cask, I had very low expectations, they were shattered; for $95 a bottle it is a gem.
Producer's Tasting Note
Nose: vanilla, chocolate fudge and lime juice.
Palate: chocolate mousse, citrus and soft fruit.
Finish: long and lingering with caramel and oak.
