Mortlach 1976 (Gordon & MacPhail) Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 43% abv
Bottled by Gordon & MacPhail as part of their Rare Vintage range. This has been matured in refill Sherry hogsheads giving it a nice, medium body and a long and creamy finish. A terrific after dinner dram.
Colour: Dark gold.
Nose: Raisins and ground black pepper.
Palate: The pepper becomes smokier followed by a nut note that is introduced with the addition of water.
Finish: Lingering; fruit hangs around, creamy, and the pepper stays all the way.
