Mortlach 21 year old (Diageo Special Releases 2020), 56.9%

Price: $755 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Aged in a mix of Pedro Ximénez and oloroso sherry-seasoned casks, this has a peppery, slightly savory nose, offering boiled sweets and dried fruits. The palate is voluptuous, with sherry, dates, caramel, dark spices, and oak tannins. Licorice and a suggestion of chile in the ultimately drying, lengthy, slightly meaty finish. (7,692 bottles)
