MORTLACH 12 Year Old The Wee Witchie Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Winner of gold medals at the International Spirits Challenge 2020 and the Scotch Whisky Masters 2020.
Mortlach distillery was nicknamed ‘The Beast of Dufftown’ by whisky critic Dave Broom because of its robust muscular waxy and often meaty character. This is said to come from the unusual technique of distilling the spirit 2.81 times a process the distillery calls ‘The Way’. Its bold flavour without any smoke made this Speyside whisky an integral component for Johnnie Walker. But now you can enjoy it in its pure and unadulterated beastliness…
Named after the distillery’s famous small spirit still and matured in a combination of ex-Sherry and Bourbon casks for 12 years The Wee Witchie was unveiled in 2018. It’s a meaty and sulphury melting pot of waxy apples pears prunes damsons cherry jam tobacco burnt toffee roasted barley chocolate ginger cinnamon citrus oil and chewy beef jerky. To anyone looking for oomph and richness without the peat we say think more Mortlach.
