ITEM 1: Mortlach Single Malt Whisky (Gordon & MacPhail, 25-years-old)
DONATED BY: Christina Habas
Mortlach is known as “The Beast of Dufftown.”  It is renowned worldwide for its robust spirit and ability to stand up to long maturation.  This 25-year-old whisky was one of a handful of whiskies released from the 1990’s, which coincided with a refurbishment at the distillery.  This particular bottling was distilled in refilled sherry casks. One might detect warm barley, ripe apple, nutty sherry and vanilla in its aroma with fresh summer fruit and cracked black pepper on the palate.  It finishes with smooth butterscotch.  Fantastic after dinner.
Estimated Value: $350 - Minimum Bid: $200
