Mortlach Special Strength is drawn from a complex combination of first fill, refill and re-charred American and European oak casks. Diageo Master Blender, Dr Jim Beveridge said: “We chose to bottle Mortlach Special Strength at 49% as it reveals nuances of the complex yet harmonious character, a mix of vanilla and mature oak underscored by roasted aromatics, delivering a unique, differentiated taste experience when compared to, for example, Mortlach Rare Old at 43.3%”.

This new variant is aimed at travellers who enjoy super deluxe whisky and seek rarity and quality in their liquids. Alongside Mortlach Special Strength, two other expressions of Mortlach are now available in travel retail and domestically: Mortlach 18-Year Old and Mortlach 25-Year Old.
