This malt needs some time to open up. It has rather subtle aromas, actually a little too subtle for my taste. – Rating: 78/100

Quite a nice malt with some sherry influence, but not in an overwhelming way. It’s not the most complex of drams but it provides genuine sipping pleasure. – Rating: 82/100

The semi-official Mortlach botting has a fantastic old-fashioned sherry nose. On the palate it displays prominent tannins but the richness of other flavours keeps it in balance. Not quite as “meaty” as other expressions – Rating: 86/100

A light bodied and quite pleasant malt. The complexity is not very obvious but it is there and you have to give the dram several minutes to open up. – Rating: 83/100

A very complex sherry dram that you can enjoy drop by drop, noticeable tannins but not really bitter. I like it very much. – Score: 87/100

Quite enjoyable, but takes a while to develop its full profile. – Score: 84/100
