Mortlach 1984 - On The Road (Velier)

Mortlach 1984 - On The Road (Velier)


Mortlach was founded in 1823 and was the first of Dufftown's "Seven Stills" to be licensed. It rose to pre-eminence under George Cowie & Son, who's unique distillation regime produced a famously "meaty" whisky, which was highly prized by blenders. It was for this reason that it was acquired by John Walker & Sons, and so important to them was it that little stock was left available for bottling as a single malt. The Flora & Fauna release was the first official distillery bottling, but it was not until 2014 that Mortlach was bottled under its own fully fledged single malt brand.  Thankfully, there have been many spectacular releases from independent labels like this over the years.

This whisky was distilled in December 1984 and matured in a single butt. It was bottled in April 1995 by Signatory Vintage for Velier of Italy.

Velier was founded in Genoa in 1947 as a wine and spirits imported and distributor. They selected their first single cask whiskies in 1992, bottled for them by Signatory Vintage, and have gone on to become one of the most collectible brands in the industry. Luca Gargano's involvement with the company has also positioned them as the one of the foremost authorities and bottlers of collectible rum as well.
