My first attempt at writing a Whiskey review. I am revisiting a Gordon and MacPhail bottling of Mortlach 15 yo. The 750 ml bottle is about 1/3 left, been open for about 16 months. I wonder how the oxygen has interacted with the spirit if at all.

Nice legs clinging. Tawny Port, slightly oxidized wine, hints of freshly opened container of raisins. Tossed hay, fresh milled wheat.

Tastes like grains of wheat, citrus, ripe pear, pine needles, nice mouth-feel and the whiskey is lively. A lot happening with this whiskey on the palate- Tasty.

The finish is not as lingering as the mouth-feel promised.

I would like to revisit this whiskey another time, if only to test the theory of oxidation. This whiskey as tasted was enjoyable, though a bit disconcerting as to me it lacked balance.
