Mortlach Special Strength 500ml

Mortlach Special Strength 500ml

"A big, friendly and warming special strength Mortlach, at once complex and delicious. Very grown up, with a complicated yet harmonious mix of young vanilla and mature oak underscored by roasted aromatics and a long and deeply affecting finish.

Nose:
Confident, complex and strong, with an instant full-bodied aroma that somehow successfully mixes sweet, ripe red apples and moist fruit cake or plum pudding. As the nose opens further there’s more sweetness, as if rich vanilla-cream was being poured over rum & raisin ice cream. In time there are more drying scents, now of roasting coffee beans, Christmas pudding mix, dried raspberry, allspice and dry roasted coriander seed.

Taste:
Full blooded with great impact, beginning with bitter chocolate and black cherry fruit then sweet, honeyed and smooth. After this more assertive and warming, growing earthier and drying to reveal a fine savoury bite reminiscent of charred pepper steak, as the distillery character rises to the challenge of the strength.

Savour:
Long, highly pervasive and surprisingly sweet with smooth, violet-edged dark- chocolate laced tannins to the fore, and behind this a dry char that leaves the palate sweet and just faintly smoky, as with a treacle tart. Splendidly warming and comforting, with late orange zest."
