The Mortlach 18 Year Old:
Distillery background: Founded in 1823, Mortlach was for sixty years the only distillery in what is now the whisky capital of Speyside, Dufftown.
From the box: Our malt masters have skilfully combined a characterful range of finely aged casks to bring out all the complexity of the rich, swirling aromas and sweet-savoury layers of flavour in the Mortlach 18 year old. A bright amber colour introduces aromas of fresh green apple and dried raisin with a savoury core suffused with candied chestnut and blackcurrant and later, toasted oak. There's an intense, honeyed sweetness on the creamy-smooth palate too. Balanced by cocoa, rich damson fruit and a roasted spicy depth, all building to an appetisingly bitter-sweet and drying finish.
