Mortlach is well known for doing very well in sherry casks, and this is a shining example. Deep natural colour and rich fruity flavour from the cask matches up with weighty texture and spice from the spirit. Selected by The Whisky Exchange team and bottled exclusively for us by Signatory. .Tasting Notes (2)

Sweet and bitter orange: citrus oil and orange fondant. Sappy wood, rich earth and leaves underneath.
Brown sugar fades to spicy fruit cake.
Tasting notes by Billy A
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.
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.
Brown sugar fades to spicy fruit cake.
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.

Without doubt one of the nicer Whiskies I have tasted! Smooth and well bodied, a pity we finished the bottle in a single sitting. Good news is there was no hangover..
