Review: Murray McDavid Mission Gold Mortlach 21 Year Old 1994
Category: Speyside single malt scotch whisky
Origin: Mortlach Distillery
Bottling: Murray McDavid
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!
