Reserved and discreet, first showing a ripe fruity tang of red plum, peach and blackberry. A dryer note in the smooth, nutty layer underneath reveals complexity and depth. In time theres the baked sweetness of a buttery Madeira cake. The oak is restrained and natural, recalling a dry, sunny autumn day in the woods. Stunning. Sweet, tongue-coating and fiery, then chewy on the mid-palate; gingery and tangy now too, ranging dense orchard fruits alongside a light gaminess. Growing sweeter, the flavours move from red fruit to liquorice to toffee, set off by a rich, supple and muscular structure. Becoming dryer, its still all beautifully pervasive and comforting. Soft, coating and surprisingly sweet with blackcurrant and drying, yet silky-smooth tannins. Later, spicy with black pepper, as with chilli-accented dark chocolate.
OTH 90 points - The introductory expression of the range shows a further example of the widening of the Mortlach style. Stewed and dried fruits mingle with light earth notes, wet Labrador, supple shoe leather, and varnish. A drop of water is all that’s needed to add a savory element and even some funky fruitiness reminiscent of cooking agave. The palate is big and chocolaty with some meat underneath. Hefty but elegant. The distillery character is not only intact, but enhanced. (Summer 2014) Reviewed by: Dave Broom  (Aug18 2014)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Bronze/orange color. Hearty but sweetish first aromas of grain and BBQ evolve into deeper scents of new leather, cocoa bean, Spanish onion. Taste is vibrant, off-dry, intensely malty, waxy, clean, robust. Concludes concentrated, grainy, sweeter than midpalate. Delicious, opulent. (Mar 2015)
