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.

My absolute favourite
Usually can't stand sherry aged whisky but this is subtle. I always get a bottle of this when I see it and now boycott Diageo for what they've done to the brand.

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.

Brilliant.
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.
