It's 2017. One of these must graduate from storage shelf to drinking shelf. Who's it gonna be? Hmm... #Ardbeg #springbank #Hazelwood #mortlach

74-#mortlach #whiskylove #speyside - 1824. Mortlach 75 yo 1939/2014 (44.4%, Gordon & MacPhail, Generations, first fill sherry butt, cask #2475, 100 bottles) Most certainly the oldest whisky ever bottled! There already was a 70 yo back in 2010 (WF 88) but three quarters of a century may be more symbolic an age by Scottish standards (but that’s not that rare in armagnac.) I find this tear-shaped decanter pretty lovely with its art-déco feeling, you would imagine that pre-war Bugattis or Hispanos were fitted this kind of bottle in their bars. And old cognac. Oh, and I should add that I had also tried the Mortlach 1939 50yo by G&M a few years back, and that I had found it superb (WF 91). Now let’s try to answer the only worthy question regarding this new 75 yo that was launched in September: is this baby still alive or not? Colour: bright gold, not dark at all.
Nose: it’s the freshness that’s pretty impressive, the first thing that springs to my mind is a mirabelle pie sprinkled with cinnamon and almond powder. There are wild herbs as well, perhaps rather sage, and saponin, then palm oil, perhaps shea butter… Reminds me of mid-1970s suntan lotion. Remember Piz Buin? Also fresh hazelnuts, and green oranges, with a faint metallic touch (silverware polish). And also a little menthol, as almost always with very old spirits. Mouth: fresh herbs again! That’s good news, it did not get drying, neither is it tea-ish or oaky as such, even if these herbal notes do probably come from the wood. I also find quite a lot of grapefruit and lemon, rather amazingly, which makes it surprisingly fresh. Also a touch of green banana, which combines well with the lemon, and gives this baby a much unexpected tropical side. Good body, just a wee tad light, but that’s normal. Finish: even more tropical! Pineapples this time, and a distinct lemon balm. The aftertaste is a little more drying, with some tea this time. Some kind of zesty wulong? Comments: an uncommon style, never fragile, with an oak that never gets in your way. While the almondy side was to be expected, the tropical fruits are the stars here. But they’re unusual tropical fruits, not quite like in, say a 1972 Clynelish .


The Mortlach 1996 from The Warehouse Collection is a fantastic whisky.
Proceedings commence with the super expressive nose combining aromas of honey, cream, orange rind, pine needles, walnuts, cedar and cigar box. Everything is sitting perfectly together.
The palate is equally as impressive. Whilst starting oily and buttery, there is measured arrival of rounded tannins and orange rind. It’s a great example of double maturation that has both bourbon & oloroso casks speaking at equally harmonious volumes.
The finish just seals the deal providing an almost chewy, medium length where possibly the oloroso influence is more noticeable.
I would love to buy a bottle of this, but with only 72 bottles produced, the chances are extremely slim.

Zomg... This is my jam. My favorite distillery, #Mortlach! The true queen of #Speyside dragons.
.
The nose fills with sweet PX Sherry, intense malt, bricks and leather. Much leather and pork fat, huge body. Rich sweets.
.
The palate... Oh my God... Huge, malt and tire fires. Sharp wood and Sherry cake, mint and roasted pork shoulder.
.
The finish is ...I dunno how to say this. Immensely long, huge oak spice and sweet candies. .
