Mortlach 1995 Celebration of the Cask (Morrison & Mackay) Review

Mortlach 1995 Celebration of the Cask (Morrison & Mackay) From the Morrison & Mackays Celebration of the Cask range this Mortlach 1995 is one from the range that really had me excited.

Mortlach is one of those distilleries that tends to produce consistently great whisky and the reputation Mortlach has as "the Beast of Dufftown" comes out a little in this one with huge savoury notes mixing with juicy fruits and a fizzy, bitter, tarte note.

this is complex, tasty, moreish and one you will want to hunt out and drink again and again.

Sold out at Master of Malt but if you find one anywhere snap it up.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Instantly fills the nostrils with a waxy savoury note, almost waxed crackers, touches of cured meats prosciutto, dusty warehouses, talcum powder, sour fruits, starfruit dragon fruit and bitter tropical fruits.

Palate

tangy tropical fruits and a lot of them, fizzy tangtastics, cured meats, waxy lemon peel and preserved lemons, sherbet dib dabs and oak wood spices

Finish

long lasting fruitiness that wraps with wax and meaty notes and a touch of spice.
