2007 Mortlach 7 Year Old Hepburn's Choice K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1192848

We absolutely the loved our sample of young Mortlach when we tasted in Scotland last year. But getting back to the states with only the memory of this lovely young whisky meant that when we actually ordered this whisky, we simply weren't certain what to expect. On paper it looks great, inexpensive, unadulterated young malt from one of Scotland's greatest distilleries at a great price. But, every time you put a young age statement on a whisky you're bound to have some push back. To our great delight, we know that our educated customer base will appreciate that single malt need not be old to be great. This little Mortlach is proof. So much complexity at such a young age, this whisky shows tons of pear and that subtle savory side. Without any sherry, the spirit is free to speak and it does so loudly! This guy definitely needs some air, but only a drop of water to open up nicely. Refreshing and clean, yet masculine and powerful. All that beefiness and sweet candied fruit all in one taut little package. Some of you will fall head over heels for this guy, guaranteed.

This young Mortlach has a lot to offer. It has a pretty aromas that are sweet and floral. It is pure, lively, and soft with a sweet core of malty flavors. This is one single malt that is hard to put down.

This fun and educational little monster whisky is the sort that makes geeks giddy and noobs cringe. I seriously heard two different groups at the Scotch Club tasting of this product proclaim that it was fabulous, while the other announced that they didn't get it at all. It's naked young Mortlach in all its malty splendor. If you're looking for something sweet and soft this is not it. It does have mounds of vanilla fudge (cake frosting), yellow flowers, snappy malty spark. Linear and structured. Takes water pretty well, but quickly looses intensity after a few drops.

We bottled this cask for those folks who like light, fruity-style whiskies and for those super geeks out there who want to see what young Highland whisky tastes like before the wood has completely taken over. It's bright, fresh, floral, and entirely reliant upon the inherent flavors within the Mortlach spirit itself. If you want to know what Mortlach tastes like before all the sherry maturation has sunk in, this one's for you.

This Mortlach is the perfect refreshment for the jaded malt whisky lover. It is elegant, laid back, light bodied and fun to drink. With a few drops of water and a little bit of attention this Hepburn's bottling shows layers of subtle complexity.
