A full-bodied single malt from the Mortlach distillery, aged for 21 years in first fill and refill sherry casks before bottling by Gordon and MacPhail.
The nose is of medium-body with a defined clarity. There are notes of juicy esters with a touch of calvados, Commice pear and apple peels. A good barley sugar note with cut herbs. The palate is quite full with a richness. Notes of sherried peels and notes of fragrant oaks, hints stemmy dried hay, notes of dried fruits and wood resin. Finish is long and supple with apple blossom and sultanas.
Nice & Fresh
Absolute not a 21 year old whisky
Perfect start on the weekend!
Bought it in Elgin, in the shop of g&m, very very pepperisch, sharp, not smooth, taste like a 10 or younger whisky. Just good enough to mix it with pepsi.

Good whisky, a lot of taste and long finish for a whisky in this price range.

Agree with the above. Nice, crisp and clear. Nice body and fruity with a nice and long finish. Great value for the buck, go and get it :) /Jens, www.chwisgi.com
