Described by Dave Broom as “The Beast of Dufftown” due to its robust, umami-rich character, little known Mortlach may be the best kept secret in the world of single malt whisky.
This small batch Mortlach has been matured in first-fill Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso seasoned casks, bringing a deep, rich, fruity intensity to complement the savoury complexity of the distillery character.
The aroma is profound and complex; rich with dark fruits in liquor, old oak and soft leather, developing into hard toffee and chocolate-covered coffee beans.
The texture is smooth whilst the taste sweet with damson fruit and toffee apple before becoming lightly savoury and spicy-dry.
A mellow finish marries spiciness and fruit in a long-lasting final embrace.
