Sweet and spicy with notes of dark chocolate, cherry jam and light tobacco, this Scotch Whisky has been double cask matured in both European and American oak to enhance the distinctively rich and robust character that makes Mortlach whiskies legendary. Our 12 year old whisky is best served neat or on the rocks with a few drops of water to release the beastly complexity.
Established in 1823, the Mortlach distillery was the first legal distillery in Dufftown, and it has long continued to set the standard. To this day, this unique Speyside owes much to the brave vision of its greatest owners–George Cowie and his son Dr. Alexander Mitchell Cowie, who pioneered the complex '2.81 distillation' process. Refined and elegant, Mortlach stands out among its regional counterparts: a wild child overlaying the traditional sweeter notes with an intensity of flavor.
