Other reviews... Yes, another one by Silver Seal. Colour: gold. Nose: this one’s mineral, grassy, and waxy. We’re talking clay, autumn leaves, cut grass, linseed oil, green tea (opening a new pack), even concrete and plaster… With water: gets earthy. Mushrooms, dead leaves, humus, moss, all that… The kind of ch-ch-ch-changes that we love at WF Towers. Mouth (neat): excellent, really. Wheelbarrows of oranges and lemons, a touch of strawberry sweets, then this grassy citrus that always ‘lifts’ any whisky (pink grapefruits, perhaps), all that being coated with some kind of mineral oil. Admirably zesty, but with Mortlach’s fatness that keeps it, well, fat. With water: perfect, just perfect. Another one that hints at old Rosebank, with just a little more fatness. Perfect lemons, grapefruits, oranges, mandarins, tangerines, clementines, bergamots, citrons, kumquats, pomelos (that’ll do, S.) Finish: medium, fresh, zesty, very clean. Lemons, grapefruits, oranges, mandarins, tangeri… (tsk tsk)… Comments: there isn’t much that isn’t perfect in this one. The fact that it’s not quite meaty? Well… 52.4% Alc./Vol.
