Must have MORTLACH 15 YEAR OLD

MORTLACH 15 YEAR OLD 43%

Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside 70cl Ref: 14299

A must have LMDW

We were lucky enough to visit the Mortlach distillery in 1996 in the company of the Master Distiller. Nearly twenty years have passed, and yet we still remember virtually every minute. This wonderful place produces a very full-bodied, very concentrated Speyside single malt. If there is a category of ‘whisky-lover’s whiskies’, then Mortlach is in it. A perfect balance of dryness and sweetness, Gordon & MacPhail’s 15 year old is the archetypal single malt from this distillery. La Maison du Whisky has distributed this great Scotch and all of Gordon & MacPhail’s whiskies in France since 1970.

This distillery carries out two and a half distillations (the foreshots and feints are re-distilled). The result is one of Speyside’s richest single malts. Bottled by Gordon & MacPhail, this release is a perfect example.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : old gold with glints of amber.
  • Nose : full-bodied, concentrated. Simultaneously fruity (pears, cherry plums), floral (lilies, gardenias) and spicy (saffron, ginger), it evolves into notes of leather, dark chocolate, and dried fruit (dates, apricots).
  • Palate : rich, powerful. Plenty to chew on. Characterised by notes of honey drops, citrus fruit zest (orange) and cocoa. Slightly smoky, it develops aromas of flowers (purple lilac) and star anise.
  • Overall : long, balanced. Develops notes of precious wood and leather with a hint of red fruit (strawberries and raspberries). Lingering aromas of spices and freshly cut grass.
The brand

The brand

Founded in 1823, Mortlach is allegedly built on the site of a former illicit distillery. It was one of the rare distilleries allowed to produce alcohol during the second world war, right up until 1944. Using partial triple distillation and a traditional “worm tube” condensation system – also used by Talisker and Edradour – Mortlach produces a very delicate distillate. As is the case with many of the distilleries owned by the Diageo group, very few official bottlings of the malt exist outside of the Flora & Fauna and Rare Malts ranges released in the 1990s.

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

The Distillery Labels range assembles a collection of whiskies from distilleries that have not produced an official release for many years (and in some cases, never have), i.e. whiskies bottled by the owners of the distillery. Most of the labels in this range are unique, and have been created to highlight the distillery rather than the range, and also to maintain the excellent business relationship that Gordon & MacPhail has with the distiller.
