Mortlach 21yo 700ml 2020 Special Release
Diageo Special Releases 2020
The Mortlach release in this year’s Special Releases is a 21 year-old finished in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso seasoned casks.
Nose: A dram overflowing with rich, dark fruit aromas - raisins, prunes and figs roll from the glass. Then the characteristic Mortlach meatiness comes through, balanced and lifted by lemon and lime peels.
Palate: Full-bodied and mouth-filling, this is like dark chocolate with nut inclusions, plus spiced orange, and a chilli pepper prickle. There's a suggestion of appled meat on a barbecue, with robust tannins building in texture.
Finish: Long and luscious, meandering between the savoury meat notes and succulent fruits.
