The oldest of three Mortlach single malts unveiled in mid-2018 (alongside the Mortlach 12 Year Old and Mortlach 16 Year Old), this expression matured for 20 years exclusively in sherry casks. Intensely flavoursome stuff (as we've come to expect from Mortlach).
Nose: Dense, elegant and intriguing. Dried fruit, cedar wood, leather and tobacco.
Body: Robust and rich. Palate clinging.
Palate: Robust palate with a coating of oiliness. Aromatic citrus. Hints of wood spice opening into a dark, meatiness of barbecue pork crackling. Berries, Jam and cocoa nibs add brightness.
Finish: Deep and complex, with gingerbread, raisin and a hint of liquorice
