my mission continues and now I'm considering to try out Mortlach ... and I need help for selection.
Next bottlings I could get my hands on with reasonable costs.
Mortlach Signatory Sherry Cask 43% 88/02
Mortlach Murray McDavid Sherry Cask 46% 89/01
Mortlach Murray McDavid Fresh Sherry Cask 46% 12yo-1990
At the time, I considering the last mentioned, since I haven't yet tried out any fresh sherry cask whisky (I'm not sure about Glendronach 15yo)... it might be an experience worth to try, or?
G&M's 15yo is bit out of my league and also Flora & Fauna 16yo ... but of course I will consider these if they are outstanding.
The Signatory and MM bottlings are not topclass. They are good whiskies, as Mortlach is a great distillery. On the other hand the F&F 16 yo. is a great and complex whisky with sherry tones.
The next to try would be the limited edition which is also great but is getting expensive.
Normally I prefer independent bottlings but in this case I vote for the F&F 16 yo.
I have in my hand at this moment a 15 year old Mortlach from Gordon & Macphail and it is superb, a very well balanced whisky.
As this is my first bottle of Mortlach I can't compare it to the others.
I did not buy it myself so do not know what it cost but I will defintly buy another.
Hope you enjoy which ever one you pick and all the best for 2003
Try G&M cask strength 22 year old Mortlach at 63% abv, heaven in a bottle.
Heh, thanks for the advice John. I will remember that when I win in the lottery.
Scotspain and others, about Signatory and MM, are they by default kept as not topclass or is it just these Mortlach bottlings? Probably the latter ... right?

Mortlach is one of my favorite malts and there are a lot of nice ones out there. My favorite is the 1972 22 year old (65.3%) from the Rare Malt series. The Limited Edition (sometimes known as CS F&F) is also very nice at 80/17 63.1%. If you are looking for something a little less expensive consider the young Cadenhead expressions. One that is available in the USA is the 87/10 at 61.6%.
