  1. hogsheadwhisky scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    So the Glenmorangie distillate and Bourbon or American oak barrels go very well. If I didn't like the 18y Extreme Rare badly, this one goes a step further. Especially with regard to the fruit basket in the nose, the balance and the harmonious taste. A really well made bourbon cask aged Highlander. A perfect companion for a warm summer evening.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The color is a light gold. Really a lot of oily streaks, legs show up on the edge of the glass and whet the appetite for smelling. Yes. Classic Glenmorangie nose. Lots of vanilla, light, sweet cake batter that comes out of the oven while still warm. The relationship with the 10y The Original cannot be denied. Bright, juicy ripe fruits - a real potpourri of them - such as apricots, peaches, green and yellow apples. The flavors of sugar melons and honeydew melons also clearly shine through. Everything is very harmonious and dignified. The 43% alcohol content cannot be felt at all, the alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel. What you had in your nose continues seamlessly in your mouth. It begins with a clear, caramel-like, sweet note of vanilla, which is actively supported by the light fruits. Somewhat tingling spice like ginger and red pepper from the barrels as well as hints of milk chocolate are noticeable towards the end, towards the finish. But it is more of a pleasant counterpoint to the previous fruit sweetness and thus ensures a taste balance.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Towards the finish, the spicy and slightly bitter taste components become stronger. The milk chocolate from the mouth gets a little more cocoa content and turns into dark chocolate or even a small espresso with a hint of cream (in Vienna this is called a Einspänner when the cream, the whipped cream, is stiff). The vanilla, like the fruit, is still present. The finish is medium long.

    Very smooth and stable release. But I wanted something more from 19 years old whisky.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Hmm, why this bottling. It looks a bit fresher and fruity like the 18, less sweet. Similar rail. Also good unspectacular dram.

    • Nose
      Honey, beeswax, apricot, these three aromas are absolutely dominant, everything else is very much in the background, physalis, orange, lemon, gooseberry, floury apple, light earth, grasses, a little melon

      Extremely waxy. I've never had it so blatant. Unfortunately not as fruity as I had hoped for. Completely different from the 18.
    • Taste
      Honey, honeydew melon, apricot, gooseberry, dried apricot, passion fruit, wood

    Balance (22)
    Unexpectedly good. But I must say that it is very sweet, like the quintessence of markers from press releases (88)
    • Nose
      Lots of honey, orange jam, heather, dried fruits ... some hops? Good, exhausted aroma with light notes of pickles (22)

      Sweet, toffee and honey finish (22)

  13. marmeladow scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Delightful Glenmorangie with wonderful maturation in the bourbon barrel, far superior to the Glen Grant 18yo so overrated by Jim M. Unfortunately, it has become too expensive.

    [September, 2018] If you ever go to Scotland from Europe using the DFDS ferries (what I can recommend, because you can take your own car with you) - do not forget to check the special offers in their duty free shop. They stock a broad variety of fine single malts at very affordable price levels and the special offers (usually buy bottles instead of one) are real bargains these days. This Glenmorangie is a good example: one bottle for 95 Euro or two bottles for 75 Euro each. I could not resist…

    ...and that was well done! This is a fine and flawless Glenmorangie that shows the best about its signature profile: A superb and balanced bourbon-cask matured spirit that is both elegant and quaffable. Certainly not suited for all thrill-seekers but a perfect dram to enjoy on a warm Indian summer evening in the Scottish highlands. By the way, I think 75 Euro is a fair price for a bottle of such a quality these days (but 120 Euro are way too expensive, according to my taste buds)...
    • Nose
      88 88
      The colour is old gold and the nose offers this delicate signature Glenmorangie profile of honeys, sugars, yellow fruits and spices in a balanced mix. Nothing spectacular about it - just they way you wish a Glenmorangie to be with all the aromas you want to sniff in a relaxed highland setting on a warm summer night...
    • Taste
      89 89
      The taste is fruity and barley sugary sweet with hints of white chocolate, vanilla, peppers and other spices and some strong but not too bold tannins from the wood. The balance is just about right for my taste buds but the wood should not grow stronger (I know that many modern connoisseurs prefer rather strong woods - but I prefer to drink whisky over chewing oak). Some water releases more aromas in the nose and flavours on the palate and it does a great job to contain the sometimes borderline bitter tannins to an enjoyable level. I like this dram best when reduced to about 35% abv (really!)...
    • Finish
      87 87
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and nicely coating with a minor bitter-drying feeling from the tannins - depending on whether you are stressed or not it might be a little distracting or just about okay (guess what I am after a fine day in the highlands…). The finish is of medium length and adds more spices (chili, ginger) and more white chocolates to the party with a minor drying finish (yes, it is the oak again).

    Not really!
    • Nose
      He does not smell very fragrant. Maybe it's because the sample is very small.
    • Taste
      Also aromatic little meaningful. He is rather spicy, woody.

    Tasted at Glenmorangie 22/11/2017

    N: Light elegant fruity impressions

    P: Very light and refind taste

    F: very mild and smooth

    C: To buy or not to buy, that's the question? But it's a very nice dram anyway

  25. Achany scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    At the beginning incredible "fresh", citrus, mint, ginger, sweet spices, candy. Then it gets fruitier, more apples, green fruit, more candy, marzipan, some oranges, more spices, oaky. Finish is long, sweet and fruity. Very well balanced, really nice. ABV does fit perfectly, what a nice dram!
