this mortlach was matured for rich distillery character in small batches then carefully finished in pedro ximenez and oloroso-seasoned casks to build yet more levels of aroma and taste. at once smooth, sweet and savoury, the many-layered outcome mirrors the complexity of the mysterious mortlach 2.81 distillation itself.called the “the beast of dufftown” for its robust, meaty nature, little known mortlach may be the best-kept secret in scotch. bold flavours are the mark of this special breed, distinguishing it as the monarch of its glen as surely as the bellow of a mature red deer stag. the aromas run deep, swirling with dark dried fruits and savoury, meaty notes. the texture is super-smooth, the intense taste is sweet with rich fruit and cured ham, building to a lingering spicy-dryness. long and impressive, the finish truly emphasizes this harmony of sweetness and spice, leaving the palate dry in a glorious afterglow.a rare release with very limited availability of 7,692 bottles worldwide.
