Mortlach 24 (First Editions 1989/2013) Review

This is a 24 year Mortlach that was matured in an ex-bourbon cask and bottled at 49.7% ABV.

Nose: Loads of honey and pepper up front with brown sugar and lilacs following. Muted tart berries and vanilla in the background.

Palate: Funky, farmy Mortlach profile with dried hay, fresh dirt, honey oak, a dash of salt, and red apples.

Finish: Turns quite peppery again with the farm notes lasting.

Rating: 88/100

Value for the money: This retailed for $220 which is too steep for this expression. I’d be a buyer closer to $150 or so.
