Wood meat served with wild fruit sauce, oranges and honey, milk chocolate filled with cherries, plums, ginger more discreet than in the 16 years edition. Tasty on the palate, pie pie, oranges, caramel, honey, toffee and vanilla, wild fruits and plums, chocolate, touch of cinnamon, sherry fruity. Beautiful smooth texture with flavors not too intense. The whiskey is well defined in its presentation of flavors, nothing chaotic, everything is precise. Finale spicy, cinnamon and ginger mixture with a good return on sherry and coffee with milk.
I already said it, but I can not explain it. Mortlach, for me, is the best in Speyside and one of the world's great whiskeys. This 12 years is no exception. I am aware of not being unanimous, but it must be the engineer in me who closes on the technical complexity of the manufacture of this tape, complex, but so elegant. Nose: Oh wow. A superb aroma of ripe fruit, slightly grilled red meat, spices, dark chocolate. Oh that feels good. Mouth: Always the sublime mixture of lightly grilled red meat, ripe fruit, spices and dark chocolate, but also oak and a note of discreet smoke coming from the burned wood which gives an additional level of complexity. Final: Of a good length, and I would like it to stretch even more so it's good.
