Dubbed “the Beast of Dufftown” by whisky writer, Dave Broom, Mortlach uses a complicated distillation process that minimises copper contact and produces a sulphurous “meaty” spirit that is perfect for blending (not unlike Benrinnes and Dailuaine).
Until relatively recently, the only way to experience it in single malt form would have been the 16-Year-Old Flora & Fauna, or the occasional independent bottling. This was because most of its output was used for Diageo’s Johnnie Walker blend. However, that all changed in 2014 when Mortlach introduced its own core range of single malt expressions.
