Nose
Mortlach? Silky sweet with raisin, malt extract, hard treacle toffee and prunes in syrup. With water a burnt, nutty, roasted character. Rich.
Palate
Blackstrap molasses and roasted meat. Manages to be sweet and grumbling at the same time.
Finish
Long, slightly dry and tannic but there's enough richness to balance.
Comment
Yup, it's Mortlach alright. Every bit as good as the OB.

Nose
A gruff Christmassy nose with an enticing mix of fruit and spice. Fig rolls, a clove-studded orange, stewed plums and cloudy apple juice. Treacle toffee. With time a more meaty, herbaceous character barges in.
Palate
Sulphury with marmalade on brown toast.
Finish
The mouth-piece of a snorkelling mask.
Comment
An afterdinner tongue-lasher.
