Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 350: Mortlach 12 Year Old 2007 Carn Mor
Thanks to my buddy Manny I was able to taste this Mortlach from Morrison & Mackay in their Carn Mor Strictly Limited series. It’s a vatting of two very active sherry casks, that yielded some 700 bottles, albeit at 47.5%, which I do not believe to be cask strength. It was not love at first sight, but eventually the malt grew on me.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 351: Ardnamurchan AD 09.20:01 Inaugural Release
Another first release from a new distillery, always something to look forward to. In this case, Ardnamurchan actually waited until their whisky was five years old. This is a vatting of 53 casks: 65% former bourbon casks and 35% sherry casks, both oloroso and PX.

A very interesting presentation, Mark. Thank you.
I see that Ardnamurchan is located right near the coast in the western highlands. No wonder there is some salt getting into the whisky.

@Victor it's the proverbial stone's throw away from Tobermory (and Nc'nean for that matter).
