Part of a trio of expressions announced in 2018 (which also included a 12 Year Old and a 20 Year Old), this 16 year old Mortlach single malt is drawn from sherry casks - the rich sweetness complements the intense spirit that the distillery is known for. Expect dark fruit, treacle and punchy Christmas spice notes from this one.
Nose: Bold and complex. Stewed black orchard fruits with earthiness and spice.
Body: Robust and full. Palate coating.
Palate: Robust and dull - palate coating texture. Light, leathery spiciness, notes of apricot and honey. Sweet and savoury, with a dark, full and rounded intensity.
Finish: Long and complex, with a surprising sweetening at the finish.
