D&M Connoisseurs' Club Mortlach

I love Morlach and this one is a great example.
In November 2008 members received a bottle of a 14 Year Old Mortlach, from Duncan Taylor’s NC2 Series. Distilled in 1993 and bottled at 55.1% cask strength exclusively for the Connoisseurs’ Club Members. The whisky is bright gold with slow, thick legs. The nose offers a sherried nuttiness, with light honey grace notes and a hint of candied walnuts. On the palate, it’s big, chewy and very spicy. Richly textured it shows off a candied walnut sweetness. Just one drop of water really opens this one up, bringing up a floral note and integrating the spice. I highly recommend this one and a club membership.
