The Beast of Dufftown.

Dufftown is the Highland hamlet that likes to call itself the “Whisky Capital of the World.” This little town of less than 1700 people is home to six prominent distilleries. One of those is Mortlach. In fact, Dufftown used to be named Mortlach back in the Middle Ages. Founded in 1823 by James Findlater, Mortlach became the first “legal” distillery in Dufftown. The history of Mortlach is an honorable one of tradition, innovation, and engineering—including the famous “2.81” distillation method using multiple still types.

Their finely crafted spirits are a core component of the most premium Johnnie Walker blends—so much so that Johnnie Walker bought the distillery in 1923. Well, mergers and acquisitions being what they are, Mortlach is now owned by the Diageo who, rather than change this valuable nameplate, have instead reinvested, letting them shine out with new single-malt and other special editions.

Those “in the know” call Mortlach Distillery the Beast of Dufftown. We’ll leave the interpretation of that nickname to you. Mortlach 13 Year Old 2021 Special Release is part of Diageo’s Special Release collection that unveils hidden stories about iconic distilleries. This sumptuous bottle greets you with meaty and woody aromas that develop into savory spice and intensely sweet vanilla on the seriously smooth palate. In the background, notes of virgin oak support the orchestra of flavors, and a glorious, dry finish lights up the mood. Hint: savor neat or with a drop of water.
