Nose: Big thick bad-ass sherry, yes this the real deal if your’e a sherry lover : starting with black tea, and oodles of dried fruit : quite a lot of sweet sultanas, prunes, caramelized apples, toffeed black fruit, with a jammy quality to it, very thick and deep, leather and polished oak, very nice stuff, with the sherry and big oak notes, and Gouache paint.

Palate: Sweet dried fruit, mostly on dates, sultanas and figs, with a spicy edge : think pepper, ginger and some mint… It’s quite dirty and tarry and you can even get some wood char notes as well as more caramelized apples, black tea and some a syrupy texture, viscous and chew-able. There’s also some orange sponge cake decorated with orange peel bits on the top, hints of cardamom and cinnamon as well.

Finish: Dates, Tarte Tatin , polished wood and char.

Conclusion: Maybe not the most delicate, and not packing a lot of “finesse” , but the big Mortlach distillate handles the sherry very well. A lovely older big sherried Mortlach, with enough wood and spice to match the sherry. I like this A lot.
