Mortlach 12 Years Old 70cl 43.4°
The Mortlach distillery produces a very delicate and aromatic whisky thanks to the use of partial triple distillation. This edition has the subtitle "Wee Witchie" which comes from the name of the tiny still which distills part of the whisky in the distillery, bringing a lot of wealth to the distillate.
This Scottish Single Malt has aged for 12 years in European and American oak barrels that previously contained Sherry and Bourbon, to give it its character and robustness.
When tasting, the 12-year-old Mortlach reveals a rich profile, with good depth, worn on wood, dried fruits and spices.
