Mortlach fever

Whenever I go thru my collection and hit a few disappointments, I go to the top shelf and grab a Mortlach. This 21 year old is not hard to find and is really a great example of that musty old church and graveyard up the hill from the distillery.

A review writes: Mortlach is one of the sherry giants of Speyside, what a reputation to live up to! This 21-year-old expression is a refined take, which adds a great deal of complexity, smoothness and class. The typical characteristics of Mortlach are all there with bracken flavours, herbal notes and an element of dryness on the finish. Aged perfectly, this Mortlach goes unsurprisingly well when sat with glass in one hand and chocolate in the other!
