  • Intro:

    This is a 16 year IB from Mortlach that is bottled at cask strength and finished for 33 months in an Oloroso sherry butt.

  • Nose:

    Light malted grain, hay and honey. Sherry and faint wine paired with delicious brine (I rhymed!)

  • Taste:

    Brine, sherry and some mild drifting smoke. Minor plastic notes and then the marzipan, oloroso sweetness and some dark chocolate flood in. Faint meatiness and musty tobacco.

  • Finish:

    Medium but gentle. Also doesn't drink like its character would suggest, but its still pretty high in the ABV department. There's a good deal of hay and sherry. Lots more funk here though.

  • Overall:

    Once again, another insane value put forth by the Signatory gods (hail).

  • Score:

    7
