Full of Savory notes, the Mortlach 25 is an aroma & palate sensation from whisky matured in mostly refill American Oak Casks.
Nose: Figs, oranges but more like marmalade than fresh, variety of earthy spices like black pepper, but with a hint of the sweet, like cinnamon.
The nose becomes more Savory with time. Someone in the tasting room of the Nth Universal Whisky Experience 2015 suggested “Smoky Bacon Crisps”.
Palate: A bit of tannin on the attack. Black tea. Dried Mushrooms. Rich fruit, both fresh & dried
Finish: Beautifully balanced. Long with lovely citrus fruit lingering on the palate.
This is a complex whisky that reflects the care this Dufftown distillery takes in the making of this Quarter Century bottling.
