Mortlach Rare Old 500ml
Formerly one of the less well-known gems of Speyside, coveted by those in the know, Mortlach's light is now being firmly pushed from under its bushel with a luxurious new range of single malts.
The first available release in the new luxury Mortlach range, the Rare Old expression has been matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks and balances distillery character with cask influence to create a wonderfully tasty dram with a meaty character reminiscent of one of the distillery's former bottlings - the 16 year old Flora and Fauna edition.
Mortlach Rare Old rich and full of flavor with spicy notes of cinnamon and oak, followed by vanilla, raisin and biscuit combined with dark jam. The finish is warm and dry with flavors of cinnamon, pepper and vanilla.
