As our legend goes, one fateful night the moon turned blood-red in the Mortlach sky and a mysterious alchemy came to pass. Deep inside the Mortlach stills, the blood moon’s seductive ruby richness and dark complexity transformed Mortlach itself with a rare and bewitching nature. Gleaming with ruby light, this legendary whisky was finished in a combination of Virgin Oak, Tawny Port and Red Muscat wine casks enhancing its deep amber colour. Robust aromas of rich wine and sweet grape entwine with Mortlach meatiness. Late at night, in flickering light, the finish soars above all. A whisky to cherish; sweetness, darkness and depth drawn together in mystical union.

Tasting Notes

Gleaming gold with ruby lights.

Product Body IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note body section


Medium to full.

Product Nose IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note nose section


Robust savoury, rich notes evoke a hearty cassoulet with haricots, tomatoes, spicy sausage, and crisp pork belly. Intriguing aromas of grape and red wine entwine with this meatiness then, as the nose develops, become more mineral.

Product Palate IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note palate section


Rich and smoothly mouth-filling in texture, while the deep and intense taste is sweetly fruity rather than meaty, and spicy-dry, as the virgin oak makes its presence felt. Magnificently lively, with a richly layered taste, in which hints of ginger lead a spicy dance. A dash of water fashions a delicious, harmonious and strong marriage between fruitiness and black pepper spiciness.

Product Finish IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note finish section


Long and deeply impressive, with power, fruit and black pepper in perfect harmony, a spicy kick as it goes down and a warming glow spreading across the palate. Finally, the palate is left dry, bathed in a glorious afterglow. A drop of water adds a dash of acidity.
