Which Singleton and Mortlach are being served in J and F?

Appreciated the new scotch offerings in J and F this week. Singleton is definitely a step up from Glenlivet Masters and while I’m not sure the Mortlach > JW Blue in F, it was still a nice change (made up for a rather mediocre Pomerol). Does anyone know which years they are serving? Neither menu states.

Is this onboard? Must admit I didnít check on Thursday evening on my flight - was never a fan of the non age statement glenlivet that was on the list. Will have a look on Monday evening and report what is being offered.

Yes, I think its an across the board change. Noticed Singleton in J both on JFK and CPT this month. Mortlach on my F flight. Agree on the Glenlivet Masters. Singleton was definitely a step up.

Mortlach 14 was solid though is less than 50% the retail value of JW Blue. While retail value obviously doesnít equal quality, I probably still lean towards Blue. But its a nice alternative, especially for those who turn their nose up at blends.

Tried some of the Mortlach on Monday night on BA58 CPT-LHR. I have had Mortlach before with the 16 year old flora & fauna bottling (sadly very little left) and enjoyed that immensely. This isn't quite on the same level, but it's still a very nice drinkable whisky - far better than the orange non-age statement Glenlivet rubbish they had before. A positive move.

On the way back down from EDI last week in CE the choice was the usual Johnie Walker Black or the Glenlivet Distiller's Reserve, Triple Cask Matured. Previously I had only ever seen miniatures of the of the standard Distiller's reserve. Is this part of the change or a run-off of old stock? I'm not an expert but thought the triple cask matured tasted much better than the standard. Does anyone know whether this is the new normal or the eventual plan is to move to miniatures of the Singleton in CE on par with the CW offering?

Just a rebrand from Master Distillerís Reserve to the Distillerís Reserve. All triple cask maturation means is that some/all of the whisky has been in American oak, European oak, and sherry oak apparently. Most whisky tend to be partly in American oak and "finished" in sherry oak anyway. No idea what this European oak Glenlivet are talking about is - sherry casks are usually European oak anyway.

Really enjoyed the Mortlach on the IAD LHR run last night. Iím normally a Laphroaig chap (I finished the bottle in the IAD lounge yesterday) so it was a nice change. Itís good to not get a run-of-the-mill Glenfiddich or Glenlivet.

If they continue serving Mortlach in these quantities, they probably won't be serving it for long.

The chap next to me asked for the same thng and we both got the same amount!

Maybe they're working with Scottish/Northern Irish measures rather than English ones.
