  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Special Edition. A soft, pleasant highland malt, but more suitable for a summer evening on the terrace! For the required price you can expect more!
    • Nose
      fruity peach, sherry flavors, spices, oak, vanilla;
    • Taste
      gentle, mild onset, tingling, peaches, oranges, prominent oak, nuts, vanilla, soft and creamy;
    • Finish
      medium length, fruity finish; in the end spicy oak;

    - a delicious solid Limited Edition
    - very tasty, really tasty and totally uncomplicated
    - but for a "winter whisky" I would have
    wanted a stronger character, he's really missing it
    the power, especially the finish is rather weak to hardly at all
    present
    - is more of a light summer whisky ;-)
    - for 45€ at that time it was quite appropriate, but also the upper limit, everything over 50€ no longer corresponds to the quality, then only serves to put it down ....
    • Nose
      very pleasant soft fruity character, peach, orange, spices (cinnamon)
    • Taste
      Mild, soft, slightly spicy attack, oak, fruit notes, again peach / orange
    • Finish
      short soft finish ;
      short fruity, subtle spicy aftertaste

    Aroma: Fruity with orange, apple and raisins, honey, vinous aromas, cup cake. A fresh shade of mint hovers over everything. There is a slight smell of salt in the background.

    Taste: dry, malt, the fruits are present, peppery sharpness and a slight bitter note

    Finish: maximum medium length with pepper. The bitter note is retained the longest.

    This was initially bottled as a Christmas present for Glenmorangie employees. You can taste the "Christmas spirit (!)" and I really enjoy it over the festive period. Warming sherry and spice flavours make for a rounded whisky. Perhaps too smooth for some.

    • Nose
      Light apple, a couple of nuts, very light strawberry, some caramel, in the background a few grasses, some orange

    • Nose
      Vanilla motifs, soda “Duchess”, sweet apples, flour, sweet peeled tangerines, a little bit of solvent, perfume notes. 21
    • Taste
      From light to medium. Moderately sweet, with bitterness. Pepper, ascorbic, lemon peel, orange peel, green apple, salt. 21
    • Finish
      Unexpectedly long, although uncomplicated, smoothly fading, bitterness begins to dominate. 21
      Pleasant, balanced whisky, ex-bourbon extract is felt much stronger than sherry. The balance is 21.
