When Mortlach Distillery first opened its doors in 1823, it was the first distillery in Dufftown, pretty much the capital of the Speyside. Mortlach had a few inactive periods. For a few years there was not even distillation equipment. Mortlach has remained active since 1853 however. What is special about the production process is that it is about 'partial triple distillation', so the single malt whisky is not distilled twice, not three times, but at Mortlach 2.81 times.
In recent decades, quite a few distillery bottlings have been released. Before that they released hardly any. Much of the Mortlach single malt ends up in the Johnnie Walker Black Label blend.
Maturation plays a major role in this 12-year-old Mortlach, as it happens on European and American oak, bourbon and sherry casks. In addition to the cask influences, you can also taste meat / broth-like notes, characteristic of this Highlander.
Bottler Gordon & MacPhail was allowed to use the logo of single malt whisky distillery Mortlach for the label. The bottler was also responsible for the well-balanced maturation on their own sherry casks of this 15-year-old Speyside whisky.
This Mortlach has been maturing in sherry casks for 16 years. The sherry influence is not dominant, but nicely balanced with the tones of the spirit. Honey, leather, tobacco, berries, cinnamon, broth and many more tones ensure a pleasant drinkable whisky.
