Mortlach 12 year old

The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    Edradour Straight from the Cask

    I bought this bottle at the distillery in June 2011. It was a 500 ml bottle and the whisky was 13 years old, finished in a madeira cask and bottled at 56% ABV. The nose was sweet with lots of alcohol and caramel apple and marshmallow notes. The taste was fruity, apples and pears, with lots of sweet notes like caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Also had some biscuit, buttery tastes like a good scottish shortbread. Tammy described it like a girl scout butter cookie. Great aperetif.
