Not that long ago, I reviewed a 24 Years Old Mortlach Cask Strength from Signatory Vintage. And today I have another independent bottled Mortlach for you, namely the 1995 ‘Stem Ginger Preserve’ from Wemyss Malts.

A pretty unique nose for sure. Red Apples, bananas and exotic fruit syrup. Accompanied by mint chocolate, caramel and ginger marmalade. And sure enough, some meaty notes in the background, like you would expect from a Mortlach.


Thick and heavy. Almost chewy. Beef in fruity syrup and rasped ginger followed by sticky toffee pudding with orange liqueur and rum chocolate. Also some hints of white pepper in the back.


Long, thick and fruity. Again ginger. Touches of peppery oak.


A rather untypical (although one might say “modern”) Mortlach.

Score: 87 / 100
