Whisky Review: Mortlach 18 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company). Quite fruity and fresh with red apples and toffee apples, hints of smoked ham and sweet-cured bacon, plenty of malt but also floral and herbal in places too. 86/100
A great old grain with a real intensity of flavours and not too sweet, good herbality but also distinct evidence of grain spirit origin still even after all that time in the cask. A great example of why old grains can be as full and wholesome as single malt whisky. 86/100
Sweet peaty perfection! Quite subtle too though, there is a soft sweetness and rich maltiness in this that really helps it along. But mostly its about the peat!
