Called “The Beast of Dufftown” for its robust, umami-rich character, little known Mortlach may be the best kept secret in Scotch. Bold flavours are the mark of this special breed, distinguishing it as the monarch of its glen as surely as the bellow of a mature red deer stag.

This small batch of Mortlach has been matured in first-fill Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso seasoned casks, which have brought a deep, rich, fruity intensity to complement the savoury complexity of the 2.81 distilled distillery character.

The aroma is profound and complex; rich with dark fruits in liquor, old oak and soft leather, developing into hard toffee and chocolate-covered coffee beans. The texture is smooth, the rich taste sweet with damson fruit, lightly savoury and spicy-dry. The mellow finish marries spiciness and fruit in a long-lasting final embrace.

A rare release with very limited availability of 3,883 bottles.

Tasting Notes

Appearance

Deep magenta, polished rosewood. Superb beading.

Nose

The aroma is profound and complex: rich with dark fruits in liquor; prune juice and Oloroso sherry, sloes in gin, prunes in syrup. Old oak and soft leather to start with, developing into hard toffee and chocolate-covered coffee beans. A rich Christmas pudding too; all classic sherry cask notes. Later, savoury notes as the Beast of Dufftown is roused from its slumber. A drop of water suppresses much of this.

Body

Medium to full.

Palate

At natural strength, smooth and viscous in texture; mouth-drying and tannic. The wonderfully rich, fruity taste is immediately sweet, with damson fruit, lightly savoury with a trace of liquorice and spicy-dry, with a scented hint of cloves. Drying overall, with rich tannins. Sweeter and less tannic at reduced strength, with more sweet spiced fruit. Magnificent.

Finish

Seemingly endless and deeply impressive, with fruit and spiciness in perfect harmony and a warming glow spreading across the palate. Finally leaving the palate dry, yet wreathed in a glorious rich afterglow.
