This Mortlach from Gordon & MacPhail is from refill sherry hogsheads. Classic Mortlach with classic sherry notes in the smell. Some sweet fruit, almost tropical, mixes with the heavier dried fruits. Some light oak and marzipan in the end.
Sweet dried fruits fills your mouth. The taste is a bit heavy at first, but then the fruits and notes of berries appear more and more as the finish comes around. It stays for quite a while considering it is only 43 %.
Not that complex sherry whisky, but it has a great balance. It just good from start to finish, and definitely a whisky I will come back too when it starts to snow! I will rate this 88/100 (22/22/22/22).
