MORTLACH

Mortlach 20 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml 43.4%

Tamed for 20 years for a whisky worthy of the Mortlach mark of distinction. In 1973, high on a hill near the Mortlach distillery, treasure was uncovered. The discovery was made at Glenrinnes Lodge by the daughter of the man who masterminded the Mortlach unique 2.81 distillation technique, Dr. Alexander Cowie. Renovations were being undertaken to the north wing of the grand old lodge when a wooden box was found. Within it, carefully packed in straw, were 12 bottles of a whisky people had long forgotten existed. It was Alexander Cowie’s private stock, a deliciously complex dram that dated back to 1909. Cowie had no doubt bottled the best that his distillery had to offer at the time and graced it with a seal of the colour of great distinction, a colour that now adorns every single bottle of Mortlach. This is a new generation of Cowie’s Blue Seal. A selection of our very best Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been matured for a minimum of 20 years to tame “The Beast of Dufftown” in smooth submission and mellow complexity. It is a whisky that would have made the great Alexander Cowie proud. Tasting notes:Robust palate with a coating of oiliness. Aromatic citrus. Hints of wood spice opening into a dark, meatiness of barbecue pork crackling. Berries, jam & cocoa nibs add brightness.
