A beautiful, fruit-forward Highland Single Malt from Gordon & MacPhail.

Dufftown is the Highland hamlet that calls itself the “Whisky Capital of the World.” This little town of less than 1700 people is home to six prominent distilleries — including Mortlach. Founded in 1823 by James Findlater, Mortlach became the first “legal” distillery in Dufftown. The history of Mortlach is an honorable one of tradition, innovation, and engineering — including the famous “2.81” distillation method using multiple still types. Their finely crafted spirits are a core component of the most premium Johnnie Walker blends — so much so that Johnnie Walker bought the distillery in 1923.

Most of Mortlach’s production gets pulled into the blends. But Gordon & MacPhail — the famous independent bottlers — regularly get their hands on casks worth drinking to issue special releases. And Mortlach Maltman 15 Year Old is one of the best. It’s a true Mortlach Single Malt aged a full fifteen years in a combination of first-fill and re-fill Sherry casks and bottled at a perfect 46% ABV. It’s another beautiful example of Highland Single Malt with impeccable credentials.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).
