Mortlach 1959/60 G&M for Royal Wedding 1986

by Oliver Klimek on December 14, 2013

Vatting of two casks for Andrew and Fergie – 40%

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Very dark amber
Nose: Oxtail soup with oloroso sherry, dried apricots, sultanas, woodland strawberries, just hints of cardamom and minimal smoke.
Palate: Very similar to the nose with addded notes of orange zest and Earl Grey tea. There is very little wood to notice.
Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly dry.
Overall: This outstanding Mortlach is both meaty and very fruity. The flavours are delightful but the low bottling strength makes it slightly watery.

Rating: 90/100 – No price information as this is a collector’s bottle
