Tasting Notes
by Billy Abbott

  • Nose: Concentrated raisins with fragrant brown sugar – touches of Eccles and lardy cakes – with cherry jam. Sharper notes of varnished and polished oak tables provide contrast, but are balanced by barley sugar, sweet-shop notes of melting Wham bars and Refreshers chews, and sweet spice – cinnamon sugar and clove pastilles.
  • Palate: Thick sweetness on the front of the tongue, fading to spicy bitterness at the back. Lashings of sweet and bitter orange sit in the middle, with mouth-puckering citrus oil and creamy orange-fondant touches. Underneath the citrus is a darker layer, with sappy driftwood, rich riverbank earth and crackling autumn leaves providing foundation.
  • Finish: Brown sugar fades to spicy fruit cake.
  • Comment: The four-and-a-half years of maturation in a sherry cask has given this layers of dark fruit, but Mortlach's weighty spirit character still pokes out from behind.
