Mortlach 16 Year Old - Distiller's Dram
Mortlach 16YO is matured in only sherry casks to impart spicy and sweet notes atop the beastly complexity synonymous with Mortlach and different to other single malts from Speyside- leading respected whisky writer Dave Broom refers to it as “The Beast of Dufftown”.
Mortlach 16YO is the ideal choice for whisky lovers looking to explore big flavour without big smoke.
Add water or ice to reveal the beastly character.
Nose: Bold and complex. Stewed black orchard fruits with earthiness and spice.
Palate: Robust and full – 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.
