Mortlach 12 Year Old

This is a 12 year old single malt produced at the Mortlach distillery in Speyside, unveiled in 2018 as part of a trio (including a 16 Year Old and a 20 Year Old). This particular expression features the subtitle The Wee Witchie, which comes from the name of the tiny still that distils a portion of the whisky. It's drawn from bourbon and sherry casks, and packs a hearty punch of meaty Mortlach-y malt at its core, supported by dried fruit and toffee notes.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Damson, toasted almond, cinder toffee and heavy barley.

Palate Warming oak and soft raisins, with a bit of olive oil salinity mixed in.

Finish A bit jammy, a bit nutty, some lingering citrus oils cutting through.

Very decent example
We bought this as part of a deal and in that deal there are absolutely no complaints. Very nice and a good example of its kind. Should have 5 stars at the reduced price but at full price I think I can only give it 4.

If you like Speyside whisky give this a try.
I purchased a dram sample for my son in a five sample box. After trying the mortlach 12 yr I found it very smooth and very nice on the pallet. I have always praised macallen gold but this is my new tipple. I know what I like and this is at the top of my list for a Speyside whisky.

Didn’t grab my bag!
Sorry but I can’t give this any more than 4 stars, there is nothing wrong with it but it just didn’t grab my bag! A pleasant drink but not for me.

Great dram
Nice bottle for a gift or yourself. Good value.

Robust oak and oily palate and a smooth finish. Look forward to trying more from Mortlach

A very nice gift.
Was gifted this, and very nice it is too. Raisins, toffee, nuts and spice all making this very enjoyable. Can't see this bottle lasting long!

50 years to discover this !
Why has it taken me over 50 years to discover the Wee Witchie ?

A great Malt for those who like a “meaty” Speyside.

My previous favourite Speyside was the 12 Year Old Macallan, but now at knocking 70 quid, the Wee Witchie has it beat !

Excellent Speyside with a lingering finish.
Probably my favourite ‘everyday’ Speyside - big hits of sherry and toffee that linger on the palate. The jammy fruits and hint of nuttiness add to the complexity. This one’s a reasonably priced orchestra for the tongue.
