This 16 year old Mortlach single malt is extracted from sherry casks and is part of a trio of expressions launched in 2018 (which also featured a 12 Year Old and a 20 Year Old). The rich sweetness balances the powerful spirit that the distillery is known for. This one has dark fruit, treacle, and powerful Christmas spice flavours.
