Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets légèrement ambrés.
  • Nose : fin, nuancé. Dans un premier temps, d’onctueuses notes de toffee et de crème de marron côtoient des fleurs capiteuses (lys, lavande). Ensuite, il évolue sur les fruits confits (prune, mirabelle), les fruits secs (datte, pruneau) et les épices douces (baie rose, gingembre). Particulièrement harmonieuse, la palette aromatique trouve son point d’ancrage en pleine aire de maltage.
  • Palate : riche, affirmée. Ses notes de rancio évoquent un xérès oloroso. Les fruits secs sont bien évidemment de la partie (abricot, figue, amande), mais on trouve également des traces de sel. Elle prend au fur et à mesure une dimension plus exotique (banane très mûre) et plus huileuse. Des notes végétales (tabac à pipe) ponctuent la fin de bouche avec beaucoup d’élégance.
  • Overall : « vivacité et fermeté », telle est sa devise. Reposant sur un distillat inaltérable, elle laisse l’orge maltée s’exprimer comme bon lui semble. De cette colonne vertébrale s’échappent du caramel au beurre salé, des citrons verts et des épices nobles (cardamome). La rétro olfaction est chocolatée et le verre vide est irrémédiablement reglissé et malté.
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

The Nectar of the Daily Drams range was born from a passion for Scottish single malts shared by two great whisky connoisseurs, Mario Groteklaes and Jan Broekmans (who founded the Belgium company, The Nectar, in 2006). Young and old single malts stand side by side in this range, whether from well-known distilleries or not. Their research and selection work often draws rave reviews on amateur whisky blogs. One to watch out for!
