A Travel Retail Exclusive, it is named after Dr. Alexander Cowie who created Mortlach's unique 2.81 distillation process in the late 19th century.

Tasting Notes

"Mortlach 14 Year Alexander's Way shows a quick hit of Cointreau to start things off, followed by soft notes of fresh oak, pear and white pepper and a few other spices. The palate is also fairly spicy, with cinnamon and nutmeg making an encore, but luckily there's also a touch of barley sugar and menthol. A slightly dry and somewhat oak-forward Mortlach."
