Mortlach 12 year old

The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    Written by

    Location: Rainbow Lodge, Houston, Texas

    Date: March 2021

    Recipe: 1792 small batch bourbon and Carpano Antica aged in oak barrel with bitters and Luxardo cherry

    Garnish: Orange peel (not as per menu?)

    Comments: Very nice, and a good price, but lacked the cherry note I was expecting.  Not sure from menu if cherry was is in the barrel and part of aging process or bar replaced it with peel?

    The nose has vanilla, peach jam and sawdust.   The taste is smooth with vanilla, caramel, cocoa powder and some floral, perfumed notes. The finish has sweet cola and dry oak. Certainly one of the better JD expressions but a little pricey.
