A single cask release from the Mortlach distillery in Speyside, bottled by Signatory independent bottlers in their Cask Strength Collection range. Distilled on 10 December 2009, matured for 10 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead and bottled on 11 November 2020. Only 290 bottles were produced. Naturally coloured and bottled at a cask strength of 58%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Rich, balanced. Very Mortlach, the first nose offers a slight trace of peat in addition to the rip fruits (pear, plum) that characterize this superb single malt. Increasingly exotic (pineapple, lychee, kiwi), the aromatic palette is becoming more and more complex.
Palate: Ample, racy. Honeyed (acacia, heather), the attack in the mouth is also fruity (baked apple) and pastry (tarte tatin). In the mid-palate, both liquorice and spicy (clove) flavours form the backbone of the taste palette. Note the quality of a particularly full and racy mouthfeel (grain of rice).
Finish: Long, silky. Overflowing with dynamism, the start of the finish is superbly malty, herbaceous (alfalfa), vanilla and fruity (Mirabelle plum). Spices (cardamom, nutmeg) gradually ennoble a deliciously medicinal (balm) and earthy aftertaste.
