Mortlach - Batch 1 Bottling Note

Run for your lives, it's the Beast of Dufftown!!! Fortunately (despite the terrifying creature adorning the label of this first batch of Boutique-y Mortlach) it's actually the whisky itself that's known as a beast, not some abominable giant hell demon you should be in mortal terror if you ever visit Speyside! The name comes from the whisky's robust, muscular character.

Batch 1 is a release of just 89 bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains, bourbons, blended malts and blends from a variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic novel-style labels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Stewed apples, rich tea biscuits and damson at first, before a rather surprising touch of Peshwari naan straight from the kitchen. Old, laminated oak and meatiness soon develop.

Palate: Sugared almonds, black tea and oak once again. Crème caramel and Werther's Original sweets. After a few minutes, the oak notes start to become slightly smoky...

Finish: ...and said smokiness continues on to the finish, along with a subtle waft of cigar box.

Overall: A top Mortlach that develops more and more in the glass.

Mortlach - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) Reviews

Epic Whisky

You can taste the muscularity of the spirit in this release - the sulphurous undertones are there in full effect, and the balance from the cask provides a lovely foil to the richness. Superb Choice.
