Nose: soft spices and sweet sherried notes which blend nicely. Fresh orchard fruit, with apricot, dark ripe plums and caramelized apples with semi sweet Sultana and chocolate. Not your meaty ordinary Mortlach.
Palate: bigger and spicier on the Palate, some sherry notes with hints of earthiness more dark chocolate, nuts and a mix of plums, sultanas ending on the dry side, tea and a bit leafy too.
Finish : Rum and raisin Chocolate, Brownies, hint of sherry.
Conclusion: This is not a classic big-ass sherry Mortlach. The 2nd fill casks impart a nice sherry effect, but it works well with the fresh fruit. Easy drinking stuff, very more-ish and very yummy. Happy to own a bottle.
