Mortlach 70 Bottling Note

What can we say - this is now officially the world's oldest whisky at a barely believable 70 years of age. Stunningly presented, immaculately matured - this is the absolute epitome of all that old whisky can be.

On the 11th March 2011, the second part in this series was released, the Glenlivet 1940.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Appearance: The colour of sun-bleached polished mahogany. Aroma: A mellow nose, at once waxy and fruity; candlewax to the fore initially, which becomes snuffed candle (a thread of smoke), with Maraschino cherries in Madeira cake behind, and after a while an orangey citric note - fresh and juicy, becoming apricot jam. Flaked almonds and whin flowers, becoming light coconut oil. Taste: Surprisingly lively tasted straight. A smooth, waxy mouthfeel; a sweetish start becoming moderately dry, but not overly-tannic. Dried fig and tobacco notes, and an intriguing light smokiness. A long finish and, for the first time, a hint of planed hardwood in the aftertaste. With a teaspoon of water, the smooth texture in enhanced. The fresh, light sweetness becoming pleasantly sour ('Soor Plooms'), with sooty smoke in the finish. Comment: Remarkable! No trace of damp wood or must or bung cloth - a delicate, fresh, vital, fruity whisky, but with unusual attributes of waxiness and smokiness - uncommon today, more usual before the 1960s.

Shut yo' mouth

This stuff is like the sweat from Joan of Arc's gusset. Sip it, mix it, put ice in it, it's still gonna taste like damp cardboard with parmesan shavings. Give me Dewar's White Label any day.

Hehehe

I think some of you might have missed the point to most of the above posts. They're jokes. :/ I doubt any of these people have ever tried it. Me on the other hand, I had two bottles of it, one I vatted with JW black (because it just tasted too old), and the other I gave to my son for graduating kindergarten.
