Mortlach 20 Year Old Fashioned
Considered by many to be one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets, Mortlach is one of the boldest whiskies made in the famous Speyside region. Bridging the gap between smooth and smoky, this whisky has been adored by connoisseurs and whisky epicureans for nearly two centuries.
Mortlach 20 Year Old is bold and robust, but has been gently mellowed by two decades in oak. Developing notes of dried fruit, cedar, citrus, spice, ginger and dark chocolate, it is the perfect partner for this Old Fashioned recipe.
