A superb single cask boasting outstanding complexity. Marked down only by a slightly blemished nose.
The Cooper's Choice
10 Years Old
Nose: Vaguely sulphury but enough sweet maltiness and delicate smoke to make for a winning aroma.
Palate: Highly spiced and warming, then a rich vein of sweet sherry and coffee makes for a superb middle.
Finish: Loads of grapey notes with firm oaky depth. Fantastic bittersweet balance.
Comment: A superb single cask boasting outstanding complexity. Marked down only by a slightly blemished nose.
Nose: Fruity. Lemon curd. Sweet limes. Grassy notes. Fragrant smokiness emerges.
Palate: Smooth. Light toastiness. Cookie-like maltiness. Restrained sweetness. Nectar-like.
Finish: Delicate balance of firm, rounded dryness. Clean, appetising smokiness. Heathery.
Comment: A good bottling of this lovely malt. Mortlach has such complexity that I find new aromas and flavours every time I raise the glass.
