Nose: Faint, sweaty feet, lychee's, slightly rancid, acetone, some wood.
Flavour: Rancid, hard, some sour fruit which isn't ripe yet, thin, bitter, finishes more sweet.
Body: Gives a chemically burning sensation, slightly oily, slightly dry, has a calm finish.
Comments: Completely different from any other Mortlach we've tasted. Very original, but not everybody's cup of tea. The different opinions about this one resulted in a verdict which is a compromise.
