Mortlach 12 Year Old Bottling Note

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.

Mortlach 12 Year Old Reviews

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.

Absolutely gorgeous, without a doubt the best malt I have ever tasted

Subtle and refined

I absolutely love this, been through 3 bottles this year. I mainly drink Speyside and sherried cask whiskies, though individual standouts for me in 2020 were Glengoyne 15 and Glendronnach 12. The mortlach 12 it’s a subtle dram so avoid if you like them heavy and peated. However if you want something smooth and slightly sweet this is more complex than most, with a hint of smoke and long finish.

Nice but no cigar

I must say I was underwhelmed by this whisky, especially one that calls itself the ‘Beast’. It’s very enjoyable but for the price I think the extremely underrated Blair athol is far superior.
