Part of a trio of expressions announced in 2018 (which also included a 12 Year Old and a 20 Year Old), this 16 year old Mortlach single malt is drawn from sherry casks – the rich sweetness complements the intense spirit that the distillery is known for. Expect dark fruit, treacle and punchy Christmas spice notes from this one…
Tasting note: Nose: Gingersnaps and orange peel, with hints of roast chestnut, apple and blackcurrant pie and quince. Palate: Mature oak from the outset, joined by prune, clove, macadamia nut and a slight touch of baked earth. Finish: Lingering oily walnut and chewy raisin notes. More ginger appears later on.
