Mortlach 15 Year Old
70cl / 43%
Bot.2018 G&M Distillery Labels
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Gordon & MacPhail
A well-balanced and nuanced Mortlach, selected and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail as part of the Distillery Labels range. Rather than the full-on sherry monsters that Mortlach is better known for, this is a more complex take, with restrained sherry-cask notes and lots of Mortlach's rich and malty character. If you're a sherry fan, don't worry: there's still lots of rich fruit and raisins here, tempered by a touch of sultana and vanilla.

Aroma with Water: Malty and fresh on the nose with a subtle sweetness present; defined Sherry influences and a hint of chocolate and orange linger in the background.
Taste with Water: Light and very delicate with a subtle malty edge with a rounded Sherry influence and a hint of vanilla. Slightly mouth warming.
Body: Light to medium.
