    The cadboll tastes good. Is very drinkable. No big corners and edges. The "pineapple cake" in the glass has to be particularly emphasized. I like it a lot. With the current price structure of between € 53 and € 60 for the 1 liter bottle, it is definitely worth considering.

      When I first try it out, I have a deja vu with The Original. I also had this sweet light cake batter with pineapple compote for the 10er. But the overall ensemble at the Cadboll is more dignified and balanced. Simply delicious. You notice the alcohol a little when you smell deeper into the glass, a slight stinging is noticeable - despite only 43%. A gentle vanilla foundation can also be seen after the first sip. The exotic pineapple is getting stronger. The pasty smell decreases.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The first sip reveals a very nice mouthfeel with a luscious sweetness reminiscent of caramel. The light pineapple cake is still present. In my mouth, too, I have a distant association with the original. But here too the Cadboll is clearly the more mature, bigger brother. Nice round.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The cake will be a little spicier at the end. But not too much. The oak cannot yet be perceived as dominant here. The little brown (the name of a little black coffee with a little milk in Austria) stays longer in the mouth and in the finish.

    You can always tell with this malt that it still has a youthful face, but the sweet wine barrels have enough appealing aromas and lively tannins up their sleeves to stand up to the latent alcoholic impact of the very cleanly distilled, rather young distillate. A really good and pleasing NAS bottling of ''Glenmorangie''.
    • Nose
      Dried sticky sweet grapes and viscous honey are mixed with lovely mild spices, aniseed and mace, vanilla, a small pinch of powdered cinnamon on a very creamy base, scattered crumbs of crushed pink pepper, an association of ''Merci'' coffee chocolate pops up, a Pleasant yellow fruitiness develops with increased air contact, mirabelle plum and a little fully ripe quince, a dash of bergamot oil, and gentle malt in the background
    • Taste
      The grapes, which have almost shrunk to a crystalline structure, are carried into the mouth on a large wave of honey, the creamy texture is lost in a slightly thin and weak mouthfeel, before the busy oak sends a few playfully combative tannins onto the stage, where roasted ones await Almond slivers and a sip of "Earl Grey" tea with milk, people also sip on the cappuccino, in the second row sit light fruits such as Mirabelle plums, nectarines and a little papaya
    • Finish
      Clearly medium length, the yellow fruits say goodbye together with the honey note, here the brandy shows its alcoholic youth for the first time, milk coffee is sprinkled with a cocoa-cinnamon mixture, vanilla, the oak is now milder and ensures a toasty fine Finish, the tannins have been put to bed and covered with grape skins, but are not yet asleep, a hint of aniseed and mace, a few crumbs of very light tobacco, a memory of nectarines and mirabelle plums can be squeezed out of the mucous membrane of the mouth

    Little complex... sweet on the nose are pleasant, apricots, vanilla and raisins can be guessed... Unfortunately I don't recognize the Muscat...nor the citrus fruits that others think they recognize...

    The taste is rather deterrent, first slightly sweet, then a bit sharp, the alcohol is noticeable, not so well integrated... unexpectedly tart and more of a lack of solvents and an unpleasant tartness for me... on the finish, especially with the paint or solvents -Missing note…

    Not round for me and the finish is really not mine, despite the much more promising nose beforehand...

    All in all, a rather disappointing experience for me... I might give it another chance... but I definitely won't buy it again... for me, with over 80 points, it was definitely rated way too high...
    • Nose

      Really tasty on the nose and pleasantly sweet but lacking in depth or complexity...
    • Taste
      69 69
      The first moment is okay, but the wrong notes set in immediately... unfortunately the tongue then dominated... not round for me... ????
    • Finish
      66 66
      ...especially in the finish the tones of varnish and solvent bother me, you stay in the foreground for a long time... :/ For me the dram is not round at all and I'm quite disappointed with Glenmorangie...

    - a very tasty bottling (so far the best among the 4
    Legends bottlings)
    - but for 70 - 80€ the price is very high, a 1L bottle is ok but even if it is very tasty it is a bit over the top .....
    • Nose
      direct, full fruit, soft, round, sweetish, oak, grapes, intense and aromatic
    • Taste
      Sweetish, soft, fruity attack, oak and spice are added in the mouth, but very harmonious, sticky fruity sweetness, some bitterness at the end
    • Finish
      medium long soft finish ;
      medium long warm dry aftertaste

    RATING: 82pts – |80 – 82 (B-) → Okay| — No major flaws, worth tasting.

  8. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    a successful combination. Here the Glenmorangie wins through the fresh wine notes and the whisky looks light, but harmonious. A nice summer dram.
    • Nose
      sweet and spicy, directly winy, but noticeably more fruity and spicy, white wine Together with the honey-vanilla base note of the Glenmorangie, the nose is really good.
    • Taste
      nice sweet, spicy, cinnamon, spices, croissant, very pleasant. Light, but beautifully composed.
    • Finish
      The finish shows a little bitterness and above all clear white wine notes, fresh, tart, fruity. Unfortunately not that long.

  10. fnk scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    very aromatic, sweet fruit, lemon is audible.
    drinkable, balanced, pleasant degree
    maybe for the ideal there is not enough depth and saturation, but as for a drink it is worth taking.
    well done, we tried!
    85!

  11. HunterRomario scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Alcohol: 43%
    Aroma: Malty fruity style, very juicy. Honey, overripe sweet fruit, a little acidity of citrus, slightly sweet spices and there is also a cereal. (87 b)
    Taste: Very malty on the tongue, again juicy fruity, with a slight spiciness. The aftertaste is then weaker, lifeless and a little bitter. (84 b)
    Points: 85/100
    Summary: The smell is very nice, the taste is solid, it's a pity that the aftertaste spoils it a bit. Thanks to Josef for the opportunity to taste.

  12. Marcel74 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Travel retail bottle, top whisky!
    • Nose
      Deliciously sweet at first, yet dry, like freshly roasted brioche. Then light, sweet and lemony scents emerge, followed by a fiery, fresh dryness and the subtle savory note of roasted sage.
    • Taste
      Smooth, full-bodied and rich on the palate, with flavors of freshly baked biscuits, sweets and icing sugar, balanced by a dry, fresh, mineral tone and the signature floral notes of Glenmorangie.
    • Finish
      Long and complex, with a final suggestion of old-fashioned strawberry and lemon candies.

    Good fruity whisky with the evident influence of wine casks.
    • Nose
      Orange, muscat, prunes, dates, almond.
    • Taste
      Candied fruits, fruit drops, raisins.
    • Finish
      Honey, ginger, oak, dried apricots.

  15. wbarchive_875995 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Very porridge-like whisky with pretty poor barrel work. The nose has incomprehensible nuances, either of an antibiotic, or of mineral water like Borjomi. The taste is what this whisky pulls out of the swamp, it is quite dense and pleasantly sweet. Otherwise, I don’t understand why he has such high marks.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Soft, porridge-like, fairly flat, warm. White bread crumb, apples, vanilla, white wine aromas: flowers, apples, candied peaches, mineral notes, nutmeg, berry jam, subtle off-notes of some kind of medication (Augmentin?).
    • Taste
      81 81
      Very sweet, almost cloying, a bit biting, quite complex and full. Raisins, a ton of sweet dessert wine, banana pie, peaches, malt, vanilla.
    • Finish
      81 81
      The train of sweets, rather dry at the same time, is quite pleasant. Dried fruits, dessert wine, vanilla-woody motifs.

  16. schengel10 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A simple kept, tasty, successful and good malt - the price is unfortunately quite excessive!
    • Nose
      fresh, sweet, yellow fruits, wine aromas, vanilla, maybe toffee;
    • Taste
      tingling, juicy, fruity onset, ripe grapes, wine aromas, mouth-filling, fine vanilla, some spiciness, oak;
      not too complex;
    • Finish
      medium-long, sweet, fruity, with a spicy and dry finish;

  20. Achany scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Fruity and sweet, typical Glenmorangie sweetnes. rather light but not lacking complexity. on the palate there is some oak, some vanilla as well. finish was a bit too short but still all right. Easy to drink dram, fine ABV, got it for a fine price onboard a DFDS ferry so it was well worth it.

  21. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty is the, for 40 € you could (or the whisky bar, could arrive with guests) like to treat a NAS as 0.7l, but 80-100 € for the liter then do not scream "buy me".
    • Nose
      light-sweet, light raisins, vanilla, milk rolls, orange, slightly sparkling, mineral water, moist clay, some white pepper, sawdust, hay
    • Taste
      sweet and rather spicy (so between ginger and cinnamon), fruity ... goes in the direction of peach wine ... later then creamy milk chocolate with white pepper
    • Finish
      long, first milk chocolate, grape skins, then warm, hot, dry and clean

  22. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I like it, an easy-drinking dram with potential better than the Captains Reserve of Glenlivet but that's not just the 3% more
    • Nose
      very sweet and becomes stronger, slightly oak, slightly vanilla later becomes stronger !!, slightly minieralisch, later spicy, nutmeg, cereals, cinnamon, light spices (no herbs)
    • Taste
      soft and round sweet, malt, spicy, red berries (wine?), light citrus notes, young banana ?, slightly prickles
    • Finish
      medium to long good spicy, slightly bitter, light fruit, astringent

  23. maltaholic scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very good!
    • Nose
      Wood notes in the aroma. Very pleasant. Soft and spicy, even a little vanilla right away.
    • Taste
      Strong in the mouth and rather sweet. He does not look young. Lets drink very well.

  24. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    i wouldn’t say it’s spectacular, but it’s certainly one of the better releases from glenmorangie, good balance of sweetness, definitely striking wine casks influence, sadly they should’ve finished it longer to give it a fuller wine influence
