Mortlach Special Releases 2022 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
According to legend, one fateful night the moon turned blood red in the Mortlach sky and a mysterious alchemy occurred. The Beast of Dufftown transformed under the sanguine glow and soared into the night sky, a mythical creature dragged upward by the mesmerizing crimson orb. In the depths of Mortlach’s stills, the influence of the blood moon echoed, its seductive ruby richness and dark complexity transformed Mortlach itself with a rare and bewitching nature.
Nestled in its dark and historic valley, Mortlach has long attracted fans of its deep and magnetic character. It has its aura; light seems to lower through its hallowed doors. Even the way of things is different, 2.81 times whiskey distilled in six singing stills arranged in a pattern found nowhere else. Part science, part mystery. Bold, but enigmatic.
Glistening with ruby light, this legendary whiskey has been finished in a combination of Virgin Oak, Tawny Port and Red Muscat wine barrels that enhance its deep amber color. Robust aromas of rich wine and sweet grapes intertwine with Mortlach meat. Dark and richly layered, the intense, lively and sweetly fruity flavor glows with a depth of ginger spice from the original partial maturation in Virgin Oak. A whiskey to love; sweetness, darkness and depth combined in mystical union.
A wonderfully intense and textured Mortlach that ensnares the fleshy “Beast of Dufftown” in a deep, spicy, fruity ruby red forged in a very unusual combination of aging barrels.
Dark, sweet, ruby richness interwoven with ginger depth. Finished in Tawny Port, Red Muscato and Virgin Oak barrels.
A deliciously rich expression of Mortlach’s dark and fleshy character that combines sweetness, darkness and depth in a mystical and intensely fruity union.

Mortlach SR22 is a unique gift that stands out within the Special Releases collection and is perfect for gatherings with friends or family.
