Mortlach 16 Year Old
This product is sold out
Inspired by the iconic first bottling in 1992, our 16 year old whisky has been matured in only Sherry casks to impart an earthy aroma, rich notes of apricot and honey and a light, leathery spiciness. This complex whisky is best served over a single blocked ice cube to enhance its spicy richness.
Established in 1823, the Mortlach distillery was the first legal distillery in Dufftown, and it has long continued to set the standard. To this day, this unique Speyside owes much to the brave vision of its greatest owners–George Cowie and his son Dr. Alexander Mitchell Cowie, who pioneered the complex '2.81 distillation' process. Refined and elegant, Mortlach stands out among its regional counterparts: a wild child overlaying the traditional sweeter notes with an intensity of flavor.
The scotch was a birthday gift for my scotch connoisseur son in law. I especially appreciated the tips on the website as to what flavours made up this brand, helped me navigate since I hadn’t tried this scotch. In the end he loved it! His only complaint was that he had not visited this distillery while in Scotland. The website was helpful, the delivery was professional and timely. Kerry Vancouver, Canada
