A small batch Mortlach Single Malt with a unique "meaty/fruity" flavor profile.

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.

"The Wee Witchie" is a small-batch, copper pot still at Mortlach used for experiments. And some of the Spirit in Mortlach 12 Year Old "The Wee Witchie" is made on that little gleaming copper gem. It was released along with two sister-drams in 2018. But this wee-little-witchie is aged a full dozen years in a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks. It boasts the classic Mortlach "meaty" flavor profile with a fruity back palate and is bottled at 43.4% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
Dufftown itself used to be named Mortlach back in the Middle Ages — which is how the distillery got its name.

Ratings & Reviews
One of my all time favorites. Smooth and lovely!
Full of flavor, tastes older, a hint of bitterness, some citrus and herbs.
there is a lot going on in this whiskey. definitely get the marzipan in the nose, the finish is really nice. very smooth.
I really enjoyed this whisky. Smooth and fresh
The Wee Witchie is the new name from the distillery to replace the Rare Old moniker, on the label it indicated that the dram went through a 2.81 times distillation process (sounds complicated). Aged in ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks at 43.4%. When I first sniffed it, it smelled fruity, leathery, and sweet. On the palate follow through similarly with fruity (I think this is where the sherry comes in) and baking spices that had a little bit of heat, nutty and sweet. The lingering is basically the same with your scent and taste that coats your tongue makes with a rich flavors. Good price for the quality you are getting
Damn good stuff. Not too much of anything in terms of flavor profiles aside from delicious. Balance comes to mind. Has quickly become my second favorite behind, distantly, Springbank 18.
A fine scotch hitting that 10 to 15 year sweet spot. A good balance of wood and fruit without having been overwhelmed by the sherry cask.
One of the best single malt's I've ever tasted. The flavor was outdone only by the smoothness of this nectar. Highly recommended unless supplies are low!!
Delicious. There's a lot on the tongue - a surprising array of flavor. The bourbon and sherry casks float around in the back a bit; rounding out the fruity notes. All in all, very lively. Highly recommended. I will certainly buy another bottle of this.
