Lot Details
Gordon & MacPhail Generations-Mortlach 70 year old (Distilled 1938)
Bottle number 38 of 54. Cask number 2656. In wooden presentation case. Gordon & Macphail has long established relationships with distillery owners throughout the United Kingdom. Oak casks are sent to the majority of Scotland's working distilleries to be filled with 'new-make' spirit, which then mature for many years at the distillery of origin or in bonded warehouses in Elgin. The oak casks are carefully stowed and regularly checked until they finally achieve our highest quality standards. It's a patient business, some casks reach over 70 years of age and some have outlived the distillery that produced them.


Mortlach 70 Years Old is a single malt that epitomizes Gordon & MacPhail's approach to single malt, built upon generations of expertise in the industry.

  • Tasting Notes by Charles MacLean
    理查‧麥克林(Charles MacLean)的品酒筆記

    The colour of sun-bleached polished mahogany.


    A mellow nose, at once waxy and fruity; candlewax to the fore initially, which becomes snuffed candle (a thread of smoke), with Maraschino cherries in Madeira cake behind, and after a while an orangey citric note – fresh and juicy, becoming apricot jam. Flaked almonds and whin flowers, becoming light coconut oil.


    Surprisingly lively tasted straight. A smooth, waxy mouth feel; a sweetish start becoming moderately dry, but not overly-tannic. Dried fig and tobacco notes, and an intriguing light smokiness. A long finish and, for the first time, a hint of planed hardwood in the aftertaste. With a teaspoon of water, the smooth texture is enhanced. The fresh, light sweetness becoming pleasantly sour ('Soor Plooms'), with sooty smoke in the finish.


    Remarkable! No trace of wood or must or bung cloth– a delicate, fresh, vital, fruity whisky, but with unusual attributes of waxiness and smokiness – uncommon today,
    more usual before the 1960s.
