Mortlach 16y 700ml 43.4%VOL
Mortlach 16 Year Old Bottling Note
Part of a trio of expressions announced in 2018 (which also included a 12 Year Old and a 20 Year Old), this 16 year old Mortlach single malt is drawn from sherry casks - the rich sweetness complements the intense spirit that the distillery is known for. Expect dark fruit, treacle and punchy Christmas spice notes from this one...
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Gingersnaps and orange peel, with hints of roast chestnut, apple and blackcurrant pie and quince.
Palate: Mature oak from the outset, joined by prune, clove, macadamia nut and a slight touch of baked earth.
Finish: Lingering oily walnut and chewy raisin notes. More ginger appears later on
