Mortlach 25 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: Toffee and herbal notes leap out of the glass, with floral scented candles, gooseberries, salted caramel, candied and fresh orange, spiced sponge cake and spiced butter following. As it sits in the glass, more delicate flavours appear, with white grape, honeydew melon and lychee, as well as a touch of cinnamon spice.
Palate: Light and delicate, with milky coffee, cherry, speculaas biscuits and some gentle charcoal smoke. It's also quite fruity and spicy, with sharp pineapple and apple chews joined by cinnamon syrup and oak. It slowly develops over five to ten minutes to reveal more sponge cake notes, as well as fresh cut oak and green leaves.
Finish: Earth, gentle wood spice and very old, polished oak.

One Of The Best But Not The Best Speyside Single Malt Scotch , Balvenie "Thirty" 30YO Is Better & Rarer Despite Costing Less With About 100GBP Comparing 70CL Prices Between Them.
Mind boggling, sweet, spicy, smooth. Perfect.
Fantastic, am a big fan of the Dalmore King Alexander and was pointed towards the Mortlach 25 from a specialty retailer in Edinburgh. Thanks for that recommendation - I love it!
Tasting Notes: Nose: Rich dried fruits with Plums and figs playing the lead roll on the nose, which makes way for sultanas skins and brown sugar. Palate: To begin the abv feels much higher then stated, but raisins and plums and dark dried fruits make themselves known as they develop even more. Fills and coats the mouth and works it's way into all the tastebuds. Finish: very, very long finish, lingers around for a while and notes of orange marmalade then evolve into a sweeter orange candied peel. One should saviour every single drop of this remarkable masterpiece, end comments. (DAMN)
