.mortlach – 25yo

When we first tasted this at the Benelux introduction party, there was absolute silence in the room. This beauty has fully matured in ex-Bourbon casks for the full quarter of a century.

43.4% abv, €786*, single malt

Nose: sweet, marshmallows, spicy, cloves, black pepper, fruit, warm red apples, exotic fruit, mangos, pineapples, liquorice root
Palate: sweet, rich, fruit, warm apples, mangos, pineapples, liquorice, a hint of tobacco leaves
Finish: long, sweet, liquorice, spicy, cinnamon, allspice
Mark: ++++/+ 
Conclusion: Gorgeous. Really fantastic, but… there is no way in hell I am going to pay this kind of money, and most certainly not for a half litre bottle. 
*per 50cl
