The boys and girls of BYOB-C (Bring Your Own Bottle Club from Belgium) have quite a few releases on their resumé. There is the Lads of Lobland series, the ongoing Mobsters on Mopeds and the Bearded Commando’s (with ridiculously funny labels), but from time to time they bottle a one-off under the motto Visit Lobland. Under that label they have a very young Strathearn, a lovely Arran and this 16 years old Mortlach, bottled from a single cask (shared with the Dutch club Casqueteers).

Delicious nose on sniffing tobacco, cloves, rum-raisins, cherries, quince and some chocolate, with a fresh note of spearmint. Gravy in the back. This is a top nose.

Oh, delicious! Creamy and dirty at the same time with quite some beef jerky, plums, ginger and cloves on the palate. A textbook example of the umami Mortlach that we all love. Dark & sweet, round, full of taste, a tad spice but above all… absolutely delicious!

Wonderfully long and sweet finish on plum jam and dark chocolate at the death.

How I wish I have bought more than one bottle way back then…
