A gift from an old school friend at our 51st Reunion at Toowoomba Grammar School for those who graduated in 1970. He is a huge Single Malt fan and it was great to have the benefit of his experience and try this Mortlach 16 years old, for the first time. This is a Speyside single malt matured in only Sherry casks which impart a fruity note. Very mellow, balanced and warming on the palate. I normally prefer peaty Islay malts but this was a nice change - very high quality with full bodied flavours. Thanks John - I will buy another bottle next winter.

Don't make it anymore. Sultanas. Salty finish. Love it. Fuller than a usual speyside but great after a big dinner.

The last two weren’t worth writing about, but this is fantastic. Nutty with a nice toffee flavor.
