MORTLACH 1992 16YO - DOUGLAS LAING - OLD MALT CASK

We go back to the Malt Whisky capital of the world, Dufftown for this next review.
Specifically we go to Mortlach distillery - a favourite of many, mainly due to the success of the 16yo Flora and Fauna Distillery bottling - but we go visit the indies once again.

Mortlach 1992 16yo xx.09.1992/xx.12.2008 50%, Sherry butt#DL4797, 582 bottles, Douglas Laing Old Malt Cask

Colour is Amber

Nose:
Heavy, meaty and sweet oloroso, sugared raisins, mulled wine, licorice and hard wood - also thinking coffee with a dash of milk?. Great Mortlach nose, for sure!

Taste:
Lighter arrival than expected, anise. menthol, vanillas and milk chocolate. The meaty Mortlach finish carries through on a good creamy sherry coating.

A great Mortlach for sure, this one! Bottled 4 years ago this little beauty is probably gone now... but if you do see one, buy it - it won't let you down!

89/100!
