General description

Fruit cocktail with a syrupy mouthfeel to match.

Nose

Fruit cocktail. Straight up fresh fruit, peach, pears, mango, faint banana in the syrupy juice. There's sherry influence and even though I think this is Oloroso, I do get PX influence with the deep dark sweet fruits. It's so sweet!

Palate

And I just ate a spoonful of the fruit cocktail. Peaches and mango dominate up front. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel that I love. Some oak spice plays perfectly with the sweetness.

Finish

Spicy sweet. The fruits stay on the tongue while the spice lingers on the lips and roof of my mouth. Slightly astringent with a bit of cinnamon that lingers.

General description

well-rounded taste and excellent nose. Very mature.

Nose

Very intense (bold) and full of flavors of ripe fruits, sherry and hay/honey.

Palate

Intense, rich and mouth watering. Lots of ripe fruits plus a spice kick.

Finish

Sweet and spicy and turning 'dry' quickly.

General description

Lives up to Mortlach's deservedly high reputation. Smooth and satisfying, with a lovely, rich character. Only drawback is the cost.
