A classic example of ‘The Beast of Dufftown’, extraordinarily ‘well-mannered’ for its strength. Magnificent in every way, this is a fine Mortlach further enhanced by gentle secondary maturation. Very fine to drink straight and also with a small dash of water.

Appearance: Deep gold with amber lights. Good beading.
Nose: A mellow, rounded, nose with some prickle. The first impression is of rich, dried fruits, and beneath this fresh-baked buttered scones, perhaps spread with lime marmalade. Soon this becomes lightly savoury and meaty but retains a slight citric note. A drop of water modifies the latter and reduces the aroma.
Body: Medium to full.
Palate: At natural strength, mild for its strength and super-smooth in texture, while the wonderfully rich mouth-filling taste is immediately sweet overall with dried fruits, then intense and savoury with a surprising kick of chili pepper as it goes down. Magnificently feral and delicious. Drying overall, with rich tannins. Similar with a dash of water, which raises a little more sweet, spiced fruit.
Finish: Seemingly endless and deeply impressive, with the fruit and savoury notes in perfect agreement and a warming glow spreading across the palate. Finally leaving the palate dry, yet still wreathed in a glorious rich afterglow.
