Mortlach 19 (Cooper’s Choice 1996/2015 Cask #0279) Review

This is a 19 year Mortlach matured in a bourbon cask and bottled by Cooper’s Choice at 53.5% ABV.

Nose: Loads of sugar and vanilla with a fresh bouquet of flowers, demerara, green apples, pears, coriander, slightly doughy.

Palate: Dough persists into palate as a myriad of spices emerge – cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Oak delivers a bit of a harsh bite tempered by raisins.

Finish: Apple peels, honey, and flowery malt linger for some time.

Rating: 89/100 – A very solid ex-bourbon cask Mortlach.

Value for the money: This is available online from the UK for £108 (£90 excluding VAT) – I think that’s a pretty solid price for what you get.
