Mortlach 12 Years Old
This is a 12 year old single malt produced at the Mortlach distillery in Speyside, unveiled in 2018 as part of a trio (including a 16 Year Old and a 20 Year Old). This particular expression features the subtitle The Wee Witchie, which comes from the name of the tiny still that distils a portion of the whisky. It's drawn from bourbon and sherry casks, and packs a hearty punch of meaty Mortlach-y malt at its core, supported by dried fruit and toffee notes.
Nose: Rich and deep. A balance of oak and sandalwood. Light spice, charred toffee and red berries.
Body: Medium to full bodied mouth texture.
Palate: Sweet and spicy. Notes of demerara sugar, dark chocolate, cherry jam, light tobacco. Classic characteristics of Mortlach meatiness.
Finish: Smooth and dry, with a palate of bitter plum
