A rich and dark whisky that combines the classic sherry-matured style of Mortlach with a window into the fruity side of its spirit. It's the Mortlach entry in the Diageo Special Releases 2020, a 26-year-old whisky finished in sherry casks, giving it the rich, layers of dried fruit that you'd expect, without overpowering the distillery's character.Tasting Notes (1)
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Big sweetness to start: syrup and singed toffee – wide, rich and sweet. Orchard fruit, vanilla and toffee notes build – well structured and elegant. Pineapple hints develop, both freshly sliced (and very ripe) and barbecued.
The hints of richness come through on here – it’s much bigger and weightier than the nose suggested. A kick of gingery spice leads into a pile of juicy raisins, with ginger cake, rum cake and pineapple upside-down cake underneath. Baked apples and poached pears appear, with notes of meaty spirit, spice and forest ponds growing alongside.
Soft spice and spongecake followed by damp apples and unripe pears.
It’s toned down from last year, but after the nose suggested some almost bourbon-cask elegance the palate wipes that from the mind – it’s ‘only’ a sherry finish, but it’s picked up a nice whack of flavour from the casks. Not enough to hide the spirit, though, which definitely elevates it.
