Title:
MORTLACH 2022 Special Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Description:
A very special Mortlach, released as part of the Diageo Special Releases 2022. This takes a left turn compared to most other Mortlach whiskies, which are traditionally aged in sherry casks, and looks at other wines.

This Diageo Special Release 2022 collection pushes the doors of new maturation experiments and offers a Single Malt Mortlach in a new register.

We find the rich and meaty taste recognizable from Mortlach productions but with a finish in a combination of Tawny Port, red Muscat and virgin oak wine barrels, that is completely new to it.

Giving it robust aromas of wine and sweet grapes, its intense, lively and slightly fruity taste stands out for its depth and the spicy heat of ginger.

This finish also enhances its deep amber colour to tend towards a brilliant ruby red that inspires the label of this bottle, with a blood-red moon in a night sky and a mystical inspiration from the Beast of Dufftown.

Colour: shiny gold with ruby reflections.

Nose: robust and rich notes reminiscent of caramel, dark chocolate and bitter coffee, accompanied by intriguing aromas of grapes and red wine mingle and then mineralize.

Palate: rich and creamy texture on the palate, while the deep and intense taste is slightly fruity and spicy, the virgin oak makes its presence felt. Notes of ginger mingle with this harmonious and powerful combination between fruitiness and the spiciness of black pepper.

Finish: long and deeply impressive, with power, fruit and black pepper in perfect harmony. A spicy touch and a warm glow spread through the palate. Finally, the mouth remains dry, a drop of water adds a touch of acidity.
