Mortlach Rare Old: The Beast of Dufftown
A superbly structured and well balanced whisky in which stylish fruit and floral notes on the nose introduce a rich, complex, energetic palate and a pleasantly drying finish.
In 1823, Mortlach (43.4% ABV, 50cl) became the first legal distillery in Dufftown, Speyside. Described by whisky connoisseurs as “The Beast of Dufftown”, for its rich and powerful flavours, Mortlach is produced in an astonishingly complicated and unique distillation process known as ‘2.81 distilled’. The production of the whisky is set to be replaced by Mortlach 12Y next year, so make sure to secure the final bottles of Mortlach Rare Old in Singapore with Luxglove before this delicious expression is discontinued!
Mortlach Rare Old Complete Tasting Notes
Nose: Reserved and discreet, first showing a ripe fruity tang of red plum, peach and blackberry (more obvious with a little water). A dryer note in the smooth, nutty layer underneath reveals complexity and depth. In time there’s the baked sweetness of a buttery Madeira cake or chocolate biscuits. This sweetness becomes more toffee–like then gradually more savoury, with heady floral notes and maybe just the slightest hint of smoke. The oak is restrained and natural, recalling a dry, sunny autumn day in the woods.
Palate: Stunning. Sweet, tongue-coating and fiery, then chewy on the mid-palate; gingery and tangy now too, ranging dense orchard fruits alongside a light gaminess. Growing sweeter, the flavours move from red fruit to liquorice to toffee, then sweet roast meat, set off by a rich, supple and muscular structure. Becoming dryer, with appealing hints of orange oil, it’s still all beautifully pervasive and comforting. Adding just a little water enlivens things without taking away the pleasing texture.

"The palate is big and chocolaty with some meat underneath. Hefty but elegant. The distillery character is not only intact, but enhanced." -- Dave Broom, 2014, Whisky Advocate Summer 2014, p. 121
