Gordon & MacPhail's Mortlach 1954 bottling. Image courtesy Gordon & MacPhail. This classic Speysider was bottled in 2013 at 58 years of age, and the nose is spicy and complex with roast beef au jus, hints of clove and ginger, and subtle touches of cocoa beans, plums, and dates underneath. The taste is fruity and rich with Christmas cake, good spicy touches of cinnamon and allspice, figs, orange peel, and honey. The finish is long and fruity with gently fading spices. Outstanding!
