This is a very interesting dram with some aromas and flavours that are hard to find in other whiskies. Nevertheless, it is not a dram I could drink everyday or more than one per evening. But it is a nice experience, for sure...
The colour is yellow gold and the texture shows fat sticky tears and slow legs. The nose is very unusual for a Glenmorangie with a slight cheesy aroma (young gouda, so it is not annoying). There are aromas of wild mushrooms, pine needles, salammoniac and many more that make the nose very interesting (but not exactly delicious).
The taste is very interesting again, sweet barley sugars combine with liquorice and spicy flavours and something that reminds me a little bit of fresh sour dough. I like it better than the nose and it is a somewhat new profile that I never had in any whisky before.
The dram arrives warming and a little coating on the palate with a minor drying feeling (cold metals, ashes). The finish is rather short and more peppery with a bubblegum-ish ending. Water is not needed as it pushes the rather unwanted flavours and aromas only.
