    The nose of this Westport acts at the beginning very rough and bumpy, the alcohol and musty aromas are very intrusive and very habituation-needy. Over time, however, the nose shows its very delicious, fruity and pleasing side, then changes again and is dominated only by Muff and Moder. The Westport is also very special in terms of taste, but I do not find it so bad in a certain way. Luckily, the musty and musty aroma does not even seem so disturbing and gives this Westport a distinctive character. Unusual, maybe a bit superimposed, but not too bad ...

    • Nose
      A syrupy streak sticks to the glass wall, a variety of long and oily "legs" disappears relatively quickly from the glass wall. Dull amber rests in the glass, strange flavors lift from the premium snifter and exude their peculiar bouquet. The first impression seems musty and moldy, the alcohol presents itself immediately from its powerful side. Roasted flavors mingle with slightly salty hints, freshly brewed espresso shows up just before apricots mingle with peach and sweet caramel. Unfortunately, the fruit flavors retreat relatively quickly, dominated by musty and musty aromas at the moment.
    • Taste
      The first sip spills creamy through the lower jaw, toasted aromas and dark PX aromas are distributed powerfully on the palate, a pinch of cinnamon dusting on the tongue. Dark caramel mixes with Vollmichschokolade, subtle sharpness creeps slowly over the tongue. My salivation is currently being stimulated massively, subtle notes of sulfur come into their own. The mouthfeel looks slightly dusty and sweet / dry before hazelnuts and walnuts mix with milk coffee. At the second sip there are hints of sulfur, muff and mildew, slowly appearing dried raisins and creamy milk chocolate to advantage. Freshly brewed espresso pulls through the palate, surprisingly, after a while, a subtle layer of salt over the tongue. With creamy walnuts, the taste goes into the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Walnuts dominate with espresso and milk chocolate the beginning of the aftermath. The walnuts slowly change into green and immature walnuts, the musty sulfur comes back to advantage. The mouthfeel is creamy and tart, slightly rancid walnuts fall in brine, with slightly spicy wood tones the aftertaste sounds slow.

    Really nice! But here you really don't get a clue of Glenmorangie anymore. But that just doesn't matter, right? Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2021/01/27/glenmorangie-mit-prof-dr-tasting/
    • Nose
      Rotten grapes, blackberries, currants. Vanilla also comes through the fruits. Wood and tobacco provide the frame.
    • Taste
      Dried fruits with intense aromas and good sweetness. Add salt and then dark chocolate. At some point, that turns into espresso.
    • Finish
      Dry and sour it goes down the throat. Then there is again espresso, chocolate and dried fruit. Spices and wood then stay relatively long.
