Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : Vieil or à reflets ambrés.
  • Nose : Ample, dense. Le sherry apporte tout d’abord du café, de la prune, de l’ananas et des fruits secs (figue, datte). Ensuite, ce sont des agrumes (mandarine, clémentine), des amandes, de la noix ainsi qu’un rancio, fruits noirs (mûre, myrtille). Enfin, des épices (coriandre, cumin), du pin et des fleurs (genêt).
  • Palate : Fine, complexe. A la fois minérale (goudron) et saline, elle devient cependant rapidement fruitée (mangue, pêche blanche). Le milieu de bouche laisse place aux épices (muscade, girofle, poivre rose). La fleur d’oranger, le vétiver, le géranium et la poire Williams accentuent son caractère floral et fruité.
  • Overall : Délicate, ferme. Oscille entre la vivacité de la pêche de vigne, les fruits compotés et la cire d’abeille. Avec raffinement, la poudre de cacao et le gingembre côtoient des fleurs capiteuses (chèvrefeuille, gardénia). La rétro olfaction est maltée et miellée (tilleul).
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

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
