Mortlach 12 Year Old The Wee Witchie Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky Distillery Bottling 70cl 43.4%

€59.00 €75.00

The entry point of the Mortlach range, combining both ex-bourbon- and ex-sherry-matured whisky to balance the distillery's traditionally weighty, dried fruit character against fresh fruit and vanilla notes. The result is a success, combining the best of both of these worlds while still showing off the meaty Mortlach spirit.

TASTING NOTES

  • Tasting Notes from Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • NOSE

      Nutty fruit cake with juicy sultanas, candied ginger and bittersweet marmalade. Fruity dark chocolate sits underneath, along with baked apples topped with a generous grating of nutmeg. Gravelly touches develop, with walnuts and hazelnuts, and a touch of nut-shell woodiness. The nuts become nut brittle and candied peanuts, and more fruit appears: tropical trail mix and dried apple rings.

    • PALATE

      Rich toffee and brown sugar. Soft sultanas and spiced sponge cake follow. Spice rolls in – cinnamon and clove – with raisin-topped baked apples dusted with caster sugar. Poached pear notes develop, drizzled with caramel sauce and served with a side of apple jelly.

    • FINISH

      Charred raisins and sultanas, sharp apples and their skin. This sweetens and becomes lingering tarte tatin.

    • COMMENT

      Well balanced, combining darker sherry notes with fresher orchard-fruit flavours, all while emphasising the distillery’s weighty character.
