    I can understand if you find the winter night's dream disappointing or overall just too round. Nooks and crannies, all in all, one searches in vain for complexity. But it is not a big challenge, just the right thing for a light, pleasing dram, maybe even on the winter-Sunday coffee table. It may be doubted for the first issue price of the "Limited UK-only" version from 2015, but a buy recommendation for the variant that is always significantly cheaper in some offers; for beginners, or if you can also get something sweet that arouses a few other winter associations besides vanilla.

      The copper-golden, amber-colored winter night's dream greets the nose with fresh-sweet orange, which slowly intensifies and, together with nutty impressions, reminds of grandma's cookies with orange jam. Hints of green grapes, raisins, pineapples, nectarine, they all mix - fruit tea in the cup next to the cookie plate. The sugar candy in the small bowl next to it also presses into the smell impressions. The old oak table in Grandma's kitchen can also be discreetly seen in the background, just like the spruce branches draped in the middle of the table for decoration. A hint of baked apple and vanilla sauce floats out of the oven with a little bit of nutmeg ...

      The Glenmorangie gently and sweetly fills the mouth, no burning, no biting. Buttery soft, but somehow also fresh and fruity sweet, Hubba Bubba with a mint leaf - or different: Here it is again, Grandma's fruit tea, with a good dash of cream and a thick piece of rock candy, milky, creamy, sweet, with just a hint of tartness Tea or tobacco leaves and the white threads of the tangerine between the skin and the meat, as google says, the mesocarp ...

      Only with the finish there is a slight tingling on the tongue and palate. At first it is short and most likely a little disappointing, almost too soft. But both Grandma's oak table and the fruit pot pourri do not want to say goodbye right away, especially the sweetness of nectarines still lingers for a while.

    Honestly, I did not want to get this bottle for Christmas. He will not let go of the young notes with a little sherry and otherwise he has little to offer for me.
    • Nose
      Somehow he does not get away with it. Or he really smells mostly mealy, like yeast, and rather young. From Sherryanteil comes to me very little. There is more in the second nose. PX with malt behind, not completely dry raisins, very sweet, orange juice (rather fresh from ripe oranges than from the pack). Maybe cinnamon?
    • Taste
      The young first impression he will not get rid of here, but I have Oloroso, PX too. Very sweet, orange peel, latte. For all over 43%, he would also be very alcoholic, I think. He has already gotten some barrel.
    • Finish
      Pleasant aftertaste, especially hazelnuts and bitter orange jam. Later, some old coffee.

    I much prefer this NAS Glenmo over the 10. you certainly get sherry and stone fruit on the nose, and it tastes softer than the 10. Really nice daily drinker.

    As I think very great whisky. Especially for lovers of soft whiskys.
    • Nose
      Intense smell. Cherrycake. Exuberant fruit. A hint of vanilla and trace citrus fruits. Very nice smell.
    • Taste
      Nice soft whisky. Tidy fruit sweetness at first. Very pleasant mouthfeel. Fruity, nutty and vanilla-flavored.
    • Finish
      Very long. Clear but pleasant oak. Now comes a hint of spice to pepper.

    As I think wrongly judged partly bad. For me a very good whisky. For the price you get a great whisky. Typical Glenmorangie softness, pleasantly fruity and very long finish with a clear, beautiful oak note.
