Mortlach 2006 8yr Provenance (Douglas Laing)

Mortlach 2006 8yr Provenance (Douglas Laing) With Tom out in Dublin and both of us invited to take part in the Douglas Laing #TasteTheRegions Twitter Tasting I stepped up to do some notes and that is where i tried this Mortlach 2006 8yr Provenance.

Before its make over I used to use Mortlach as an intro whisky to people looking to experience an affordable malt whisky for the first time, it was perfect, smooth, fruity and great long sweet finish so how was something half its age going to do?

You can purchase this from the Douglas Laing Online Shop or some Specialist retailers.

Thanks to Douglas Laing for the invite to the tasting and for the samples


Fruit, pears and custard like pear jelly belly or pear yoghurt.

Pears, sweet toffee and fudge With water takes away the fudge and leaves the pear again and a tinny hint, going from fresh pears to tinned pear.

For me sweet and quite long (without water)
