What they say:

Muscular Mortlach matured in a first fill bourbon cask! The outturn was 292 bottles at 50.4% abv, a common bottling strength for Murray McDavid’s Mission Gold range.


Creamy coconut & mellow citrus mandarin, underpinned with a depth of warm chocolate orange, burnt toffee & charred oak


Taste of smoky cereals, paired with a satisfying oily mouthfeel


A final tang of light plum

What I Say:

The 6th and final dram from The Dram Team Incredible Indies tasting set was this 21 year old 1st fill Bourbon-cask matured Mortlach.


Muscat dark and rich (11/20), large tears and thick oily legs resolve to medium


Heather honey, orange oil, chocolate, butterscotch, treacle, molasses, malty cereal barley


Black forest gateau or black cherries dipped in dark chocolate, a little blackcurrant and a lot of malt


Medium-long, treacle rich, treacle toffee pudding


A superb Mortlach expression, rich, meaty, mealy and full of mouth-watering flavours and aromas. Just Immense!

Score: 91/100
