What's in a name? Mortlach 1998 (Berry Bros. & Rudd) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Mortlach 1998 (Berry Bros. & Rudd) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Fresh and fragrant, with honey and fresh fruits. Warm pastries and anise, a little rose water too.
Palate: Honey and malt, Nice biscuits (really Nice ones) and almond oil. Creamy and thick.
Finish: Copper, oak and toffee.
Light, clean, crisp aroma. Wow... Powerful flavour (maybe due to the 56.8% alcohol!), Very round flavour, rich, tarte tatin, caramel... Delicious!
