RRP 575 per bottle
UK Stockist
Tasted by
Becky Paskin

Distilled: 1999

PX & Oloroso Sherry Seasoned Casks

Number Bottled: 7,692

Nose: Waxy and meaty with grilled nectarines, toasted nuts and a slightly singed summer fruits pie.

Palate: More stewed fruits with this thick, waxy, mouth-coating texture that moves things into dry leather, sweet glazed ham and a red chilli kick.

Finish: Long lasting with grilled peaches, candle wax and chilli spice.

Conclusion: Mortlach is known for its meaty feistiness, but when matured in casks seasoned with PX and oloroso Sherry it really comes into its own.
