This Mortlach was matured for rich distillery character in small batches then carefully finished in Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso-seasoned casks to build yet more levels of aroma and taste. At once smooth, sweet and savoury, the many-layered outcome mirrors the complexity of the mysterious Mortlach 2.81 distillation itself.

Called the “The Beast of Dufftown” for its robust, meaty nature, 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.

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: Deep gold with amber lights. Good Beading.

Body: Medium to full.

Nose: A mellow, rounded, nose with some prickle. Lightly savoury and meaty but retains a slight citric note.

Palate: At natural strength, mild for its strength and super-smooth in texture. Sweet overall dried fruits taste, with a surprising kick of chilli pepper.

Finish: Seemingly endless and deeply impressive with the fruit and savoury notes in perfect agreement and a glorious rich afterglow.
