    [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).

  3. 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!

    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.
