Mortlach Rare Old

Mortlach Rare Old

Official bottling
Single malt - Speyside
Dark gold
43.4% ABV

Nose: Lemon zest, brass polish, ginger, eucalyptus, vanilla, cookie dough. 
Mouthfeel: Heavy body, slippery, slightly oily, chewy. 
Tasting:  Bitter sour. White grapes, lemon zest, candied ginger, cookie dough, hints of cotton sheets. 
Finish: Medium. Candied ginger, ginseng, white grapes, hints of green tea. 


A new official bottling from Mortlach. I'm sorry to see the classic Flora and Fauna bottling go, but this one is a reasonable replacement. It's not a sherry bomb as the older Mortlachs are, but instead carries a load of spicy tart notes, with interesting astringent hints on the tongue.


I like this.
