Mortlach Estuchado Special Release 2022 is part of a limited annual collection of natural cask strength Scotch Whiskies from the original distilleries. Released annually since 2001, the collection has developed into a series of revered and highly regarded whiskies that continue to be highly sought after.
Legend has it that one night the moon turned blood red, transforming the distillery into a mythical creature that rose into the glowing red orb.
For this Special Releases collection, the master blender has wandered among incomparable reserves and let his imagination run free, pushing the boundaries of flavour through unique cask finishes and remarkable artistry. Each of the Single Malt Scotch Whiskies in the collection expresses a particular character, inspired by the mythical creatures that inhabit the lands surrounding each distillery.
Mortlach Special Release 2022 Tasting Notes
Tobacco, sauce and a hint of marmite on the nose somehow fade into hints of red velvet cake. The palate is much sweeter than the nose initially suggests, with notes of stewed red fruits, but retaining the meaty character, with hints of meatballs and cranberry sauce.
