Mortlach 21 Year Old Special Releases 2020 Description
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. The many-layered outcome mirrors the complexity of the mysterious Mortlach 2.81 distillation itself.
Part of the Diageo Special Releases 2020 range, this expression is highly-limited.
Nose: mellow, rounded; rich, dried fruits and fresh-baked buttered scones, followed by more savoury and meaty notes.
Palate: mild for its strength and super-smooth; rich and sweet with dried fruits, then intense and savoury with a surprising kick of chili pepper as it goes down.
Finish: seemingly endless and deeply impressive,with the fruit and savoury notes in perfect agreement and a warming glow spreading across the palate.
