Mortlach 1954 Rare Vintage (Gordon and MacPhail)
The final dram on this Gordon and MacPhail Rare Vintages Tweet Tasting from The Whisky Wire was this 1954 Mortlach.
This mortlach is the Cocoon (remember that film) of Whisky, still feisty with plenty to say for itself, an exceptional experience.

Many thanks to Steve from The Whisky Wire and to Gordon and MacPhail for including me on this Tweet Tasting.
Lots and lots softly going on waxy, industrial soft caramel and red berries, nutty, sweet but has the herb factor with hints of fennel like a whisky aramoatherapy treatment, herbs spices, but still lovely sweetness, hints of malty sweet notes developing also
malty fruits followed by hints of smoke, becomes bigger and meatier with slighty sweet BBQ a real big hitter
Sweet, malty, bbq, yum
