Another special one here. Old Mortlach!
This was another that I paid to try at the festival. I usually really like Mortlach in Sherry and I've heard good things about the older stuff. This is Bourbon though.
Mortlach indies has been rising in price since Diageo took notice of it and released a range in those 50cl bottles at frankly ridiculous prices. This is no different.
