Fandt dette på Facebook, skrevet af en af gutterne fra Maltstock:

"hmm, apparantly a good cask, lasting for 70 years. Supose you would have used that cask for your 10y bottling. That would mean you could use it 7 times. Every time would give you let's say 300 bottles. So a total of 2100 bottles over the 70 years. Selling for 50,- a bottle would give you 105.000. so I supose the other 840.000 is because it's very special....."

So many malts - so little time...

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: The colour of sun-bleached polished mahogany.

Aroma: A mellow nose, at once waxy and fruity; candlewax to the fore initially, which becomes snuffed candle (a thread of smoke), with Maraschino cherries in Madeira cake behind, and after a while an orangey citric note - fresh and juicy, becoming apricot jam. Flaked almonds and whin flowers, becoming light coconut oil.

Taste: Surprisingly lively tasted straight. A smooth, waxy mouthfeel; a sweetish start becoming moderately dry, but not overly-tannic. Dried fig and tobacco notes, and an intriguing light smokiness. A long finish and, for the first time, a hint of planed hardwood in the aftertaste. With a teaspoon of water, the smooth texture in enhanced. The fresh, light sweetness becoming pleasantly sour ('Soor Plooms'), with sooty smoke in the finish.

Comment: Remarkable! No trace of damp wood or must or bung cloth - a delicate, fresh, vital, fruity whisky, but with unusual attributes of waxiness and smokiness - uncommon today, more usual before the 1960s.

Duffer - Det hører med at de smagsnoter som du klipper/klistrer er reklamemateriale fra producenten, Gordon & MacPhail, ikke fra en uafhængig kilde.

Man kan spare et helt pund ved at købe Mortlach 70 her:

Jeg skal da beklage hvis det har villedt nogen og de har anskaffet sig et par flasker ud fra aftapperens smagsnoter. :oops:
Gordon & MacPhail er vel aftapperen og Mortlach producenten. :wink:

Jeg vil nu også betegne G og M som producent i det her tilfælde. De har fået fyldt Newmake på deres egne fade, selv stået for modningen og selv bestemt hvornår fadet skulle aftappes. De har også haft indflydelse på en del faktorer (som dog ikke er hændt i det her tilfælde) såsom nedvanding og finish af det færdige produkt

John Hansell har en uformel anmeldelse :

Okay, the temptation was too great. I decided to pour a little more than half my 30ml sample last night after coming home from taking my wife out for her birthday. And I decided that I am not going to review this formally, but to rather enjoy it as much as I can and savor the moment of tasting a whisky that's 70 years old.
My informal impressions? I really liked the nose. I never would have suspected it would be this old. Very complex and impressive. Its age shows more on the palate. Past its prime? In all honesty, yes. There's definintely some resinous oak notes in there. Still, it's an entertaining and intriguing dram with redeeming qualities. I enjoyed drinking it. A rare treat.

Hvis jeg ikke husker helt galt, så har jeg klappet tønden tilbage i 1996, da vi besøgte G&M lager i Elgin.... Mortlach har vel solgt fadet til et firma på et meget tidligt tidspunkt, så jeg vil ikke mene, at man kan tillægge Mortlach megen credit i dag (hvor de er ejet af Diageo) for denne aftapning - den må vel fuldt og holdent stå for G&M ´s egen regning - som MacDeffe også er inde på

Intet destillat = ingen whisky :-)

Her er lidt mere eller mindre uafhængige smagsnoter:

RMW Staff Tasting Notes
Nose: Black Cherries, Orange peel, dark chocolate, some pine resin, notes of dunnage warehouse. Dried fruits "“ apricot "“ sherry influence comes through, then strawberry shortcake and fresh mint leaves. Some rubber, plums and macadamia nuts. All in all a nose to savour "“ very complex and quite incredible for a whisky of this age.
Palate: Oily and buttery, Worcester sauce, earthy smoke. More Orange and dried fruits. Surprisingly bold "“ again, for the age "“ with a very firm, waxy mouthfeel. Wood varnish emerges.
Finish: Long and dry, a touch of heather and spice comes through.
Comments: Still an amazingly vibrant spirit after so long in cask.


Charles Macleans Tasting notes
Colour of Sun: bleached polished mahogany
Nose: A mellow nose, at once waxy and fruity; candlewax to the fore initially, which becomes snuffed candle (a thread of smoke), with Maraschino cherries in Madeira cake behind, and after a while orangey citric note "“ fresh and juicy, becoming apricot jam. Flaked almonds and whin flowers, becoming light coconut oil.
Palate: Surprisingly lively tasted straight. A smooth, waxy mouth feel; a sweetish start becoming moderately dry, but not overly tannic.

Til de som ikke har været på G&Ms hjemmeside, er denne video værd at se http://www.gordonandmacphail.com/mortlach70/movie.html
Et godt fad der kan holde ABV'en på 46.1% efter 70 år...

De aftappede også en 1938 Mortlach i 1998 Flemming, det kan være det er den du har klappet ???? :-)

Eller :

Sidste år deltog jeg i en vertical mortlach smagning (En Mortical) hos GogM sammen med Bl.a Bandholm
Vi var så heldige at få en 1938 60yr serveret (aftappet 1998)
Bandholm sagde at han havde set et 1938 Mortlach fad i GogM's warehouse på en akademitur EFTER 1998 (1999 eller 2000, jeg kan ikke lige huske det), altså et andet fad end det vi lige sad og nød. Jeg syntes da det var ret fascinerende at vide at de havde endnu ældre whisky

Det var i 2000 på Akademituren, se uskarpe billede... med et lille fad er det utroligt er endte med at blive så mange flasker. Ved ikke om det er det nu aftappede fad, men på G&M hjemmeside ser det ud til at sherry teksten på fadenden er tilføjet billedet, er alt for skarpt efter min mening.

Billedet fra Gordon and Macphails side når man læser om den 70 årige.

...men på G&M hjemmeside ser det ud til at sherry teksten på fadenden er tilføjet billedet, er alt for skarpt efter min mening.


Det ser ud til at nogen af den hvide farve også er at se i den "udskårne" sorte tekst, så mon ikke det har været der "altid" - men dermed kan det jo selvfølgelig stadig være et "designet" foto...

Hej Lars

Du har ret, jeg gav mit billedefuldt lys i et redigeringsprogram, så kom teksten frem... beklager jeg ikke troede på det i starten.
