Mortlach 21 Year Old Directors Cut (Douglas Laing) Review

Mortlach 21 Year Old Directors Cut (Douglas Laing) As a blogger I'm sometimes very lucky and get to taste some incredible whiskies, this time is no different as I taste the Mortlach 21 Year Old Directors Cut from Douglas Laing.

This 21 year old from an ex sherry butt exhibits real fruitiness with underlying notes of menthol and a dusty airing cupboard which all add to the overall balance of the dram. A very nice example from this distillery and one i'm extremely glad to have tried.

Available to buy from the wonderful chaps at The Whisky Exchange and i've just discovered also available for a £5 less at The Green Welly Stop

Thanks Again to the guys at Douglas Laing for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


an initial nose of cherry/strawberry tunes with that fruit and menthol mixing note, underlying that is a dusty ness like dusty sheets in an airing cupboard, under that is some sweet oak.


more cherry tunes definitely some marachino cherries and menthol, sweet and oaky with hints of dustiness


cherry and menthol
