Mortlach 16 Bottling Note

A full-bodied, sherried single malt from Mortlach, matured for 16 years and released as part of the Flora and Fauna series.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite fresh and floral, with developing smoke. Notes of rubber spearmint leaves and gentle smoke with a hint of warm kippers. The palate is very well-balanced and the flavours firm and full. Notes of heather root and gentle wafting smoke with toffee sweetness. Juicy and thoroughly chewy sultanas and mixed peels with a hint of amontillado. The finish is long and well-smoked with oaken warmth.

Easily my favourite whisky

So sad that it is discontinued. I haven't yet tried the new perfume-bottle bottlings—they're considerably more expensive.

Something really special

Have had the pleasure of drinking a few bottles of this stuff in the past couple of years. Really excellent dram. Big on the sherry and I got spiced fruit notes with the noticeable speyside citrus peel. Going out of stock now, prices have gone up and i feel lucky to have found this gem of a distillery.

As someone who usually goes for highland malts, I loved this scotch. Just a shame they export so little outside of Scotland itself. That said, I have seen other bottling companies do recaskings- up here in Canada I've seen Gordon and MacPhail (a somewhat common recasker/distributer up here) do a recasking of a Mortlach 15.

Fantastic experience

This was part of a 10 sample set and the first one we tried. Outstanding scotch with depth. Even the nose is overwhelming with a basket of scents.

Won my taste test

I was recently touring distilleries in Scotland and signed up for a connoisseurs tasting. This one was my winner. Brought some home and now I'm crying because I haven't been able to find it in the U.S.

Watch out, Macallan

And people buy Macallan over this? I, too, love Macallan, but this M16 takes the cake. Highly recommended!

Wonderful. The best whisky I have drunk so far.

While I am not an expert by any means in the ways and means of Single Malt Scotch, in my 75 years on the planet, I cannot recall having enjoyed a wee dram of any other as last night when a friend shared opening of MORTLACH (16 yr)he picked up when visiting last week at the British Open. Absolutely the compliments!!!!!
