MORTLACH 2012 Very Cloudy S.V 40%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 57624
Founded in 1823, Mortlach is one of the very few distilleries that practise partial triple distillation (2.81 times exactly). It uses old-fashioned condensers known as "worm tubes" and is noted for producing a very delicate distillate with a rich and fruity profile. Distilled in 2012, this version has been aged exclusively in ex-bourbon casks that impart sweet, spicy notes. Like the Un-Chillfiltered Collection, the whiskies in the Very Cloudy range are bottled in small batches of two to five casks. Reduced to 40% without either chill filtering or colouring, they have a rich, intensely aromatic character and slightly cloudy appearance. For a more authentic tasting experience, they can be enjoyed either at room temperature or lightly chilled to accentuate the oily aspect. The Very Cloudy range is exclusive to La Maison du Whisky.

- 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.
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.
The lineTout comme The Un-Chillfiltered Collection, les whiskies de la gamme Very Cloudy sont embouteillés à partir de petits lots de deux à cinq fûts. Réduits à 40% sans filtration à froid ni coloration, ils possèdent un profil riche, très aromatique et présentent un aspect légèrement trouble. Pour une expérience gustative des plus authentique, ils peuvent se déguster à température ambiante ou légèrement rafraîchis pour augmenter ce côté huileux. La gamme Very Cloudy est une exclusivité La Maison du Whisky.
