This gorgeous new Mortlach 26 Year Old is one of Diageo’s special releases for 2019 that was distilled at “The Beast of Dufftown” and matured in fresh-toasted first-fill Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso Sherry seasoned casks before being bottled at a cask strength of 53.3%. It brings rich fruits, toasted oak, sticky toffee and sweet pear on the nose, followed by Christmas cask, cinnamon spice, gingerbread and gentle winter berries on the palate. The finish is long with warming malt and more toasted oak. This all comes packaged inside a stunning bottle and box that features an intricately designed Scottish Stag on the front.
This whisky is a real beauty and with only 3,883 bottles produced, it’s highly limited and expected to sell out fast.
