Interesting how you feel the slightly heavy body of Mortlach even though this is an otherwise surprisingly clean and fruity version. I like the nose best. (www.whiskynotes)

Mortlach  distillery
La distillerie Mortlach est installée aux abords de Dufftown. Tout près de là, l’église de Mortlach est l’une des plus vieilles d’Écosse. Elle aurait été construite dès l’an 566. Mais tout le sol environnant est chargé d’histoire : le roi écossais Malcolm II y a battu les Danois en 1010.
La distillerie Mortlach a ceci d’Ecossais que tous ses alambics ont été achetés d’occasion !
Elle offre la particularité de produire un whisky issu de 2,8 distillations. En fait 80 % de la production est distillé trois fois, les 20 % restants n’étant distillés que deux fois.
Le Mortlach offre tout le plaisir que l’on peut attendre d’un bon single malt du Speyside : les fleurs, la tourbe, la fumée, le malt et le fruit. Sa complexité pourrait lui venir de l’extraordinaire diversité des alambics.

The Bottler : Brand First Editions
Founded in 2010, the origins of the company are rooted in the decades we have spent growing up in and around the scotch whisky industry, and our respect and passion for the spirit this history has instilled. With a label inspired by the classic elegance of an antique manuscript, the First Editions brand is the mark of quality which appears across our core range of single-cask bottlings of malt whisky.

We review our maturing stocks on a monthly basis, drawing samples from casks we believe may be ready for bottling. Always mindful of the benefits of a whisky being from just one cask, we will bottle it when we feel it is at its best for drinking rather than being influenced by “round” ages such as 18, or 25 years old.
The First Editions bottlings are always at cask-strength and, naturally, without artificial colouring or chill-filtration.

“Our mission as a company is to bottle only the finest single-casks of  Scotland’s malt whiskies, under our own First Editions label.”
“As a young company in an industry where time is of the greatest importance, we can afford to be patient.”

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
