Mortlach 21 Bottling Note
A full-bodied single malt from the Mortlach distillery, aged for 21 years in first fill and refill sherry casks before bottling by Gordon and MacPhail.
The nose is of medium-body with a defined clarity. There are notes of juicy esters with a touch of calvados, Commice pear and apple peels. A good barley sugar note with cut herbs. The palate is quite full with a richness. Notes of sherried peels and notes of fragrant oaks, hints stemmy dried hay, notes of dried fruits and wood resin. Finish is long and supple with apple blossom and sultanas.
