Mortlach Special Strength
Mortlach // Speyside, Scotland
Using first and second-fill American and European oak (including some recharred casks), the Mortlach Special Strength is a limited release bottling, exclusively sold in travel retail outlets worldwide. Bottled at a higher ABV than its age-statement adorned kin, the Special Strength is part of Diageo's recent efforts to move Mortlach into the forefront of the single malt world. If this means more juice coming stateside from this under-appreciated distillery, we welcome the move.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
