The nose confirms the full term maturation of this Mortlach in a refill hogshead. Mortlach's spirit character is fully retained in the nose. Dried straw, nuts, extra virgin olive oil, melons and tropical fruits. There is also a hint of floral aroma followed by the sweetness of fruit candies.
The palate is full and thick with the aromas of nuts and extra virgin olive oil. There is a slight saltiness to the mouthfeel, almost like that of a salted peanut! There is also dry straw, tea, dried walnuts, melons and tropical fruits. There is a hint of a baked pizza crust too! The longer you hold the whisky in the palate, the more its fruitiness surfaces.
The finish is long with fruit candies, oak and a hint of flowers.
