With a body and mouthfeel deserving of the moniker 'The Beast of Dufftown', though perhaps gentler in nature than the name suggests, this is a fresh and lively Mortlach full of sharp citrus notes, honey, spice and a hint of malty sweetness. More likely to lick your face than attack you, though still has a little bite at 48.4% ABV.

Mortlach 2005 Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's notes

    Nose: Lemon meringue pie alongside toasted nuts and a sweet, oaky character.

    Palate: More citrus fruits and a thick, mouthcoating creaminess plus honey.

    Finish: A gentle spiciness lingers with hints of pastry and milk chocolate.
