Mortlach 25 Year Old Bottling Note
The oldest expression from the 2014 release of Mortlach single malt Scotch whiskies is their 25 Year Old. Mortlach use whisky matured mostly in refill American oak casks, aged for a quarter of a century before bottling the whisky into these remarkably designed bottles. Along with the Rare Old, the 18 Year Old and the travel retail exclusive Special Strength, there’s now a handsome selection of Mortlach single malts to enjoy – quite a contrast to years previous, when official bottlings were few and far between.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Vanilla pods, pineapple, lemon zest and a warming hint of tobacco. Touches of crushed almond. Wafts of light oak develop and grow gloriously rich.
Palate: Dark chocolate, oak spice and dried fruits. Baking spices grow on the mid palate, building a rich core alongside the fragrant oak. Subtly herbal further on.
Finish: Sweet, drying notes, highlighted by cocoa and oak spice.
