Tasting Notes

"There's a faint sherry influence here, but also notes of citrus, apple and sweet barley. Not overly complex, but the palate makes up for it. A blast of flavors, with hints of smoked barbecue sauce. Meaty, full-bodied and with an unexpected floral note, this is an excellent Mortlach."
