The 10th cask that The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottled from Mortlach, back in 1994. Today the majority of Mortlach's production is used as the sherried component in Johnnie Walker and there are few official bottlings.

Earliest of the eight Dufftown distilleries. On the Fiddich river, but not eponymously. Perfectly pale, slightly greenish colour, from a plain oak cask. The nose is very sharp, but sweet and medicinal, like eating toffee while being chloroformed. With water, it becomes mild and nutty. The taste begins sweet and peppery: barley-sugar in cayenne. It ends dryly and very long.
