    1705) Glenmorangie, 18YO, Extremely Rare (24/11/2018)
    • Nose
      N- Elegantly mellow honey and nutty. Aldehydic at heart with rattan-basketful of fresh floral pouring in, like dipping nose into half full fine perfume bottle. Potpourri, hint dried citrus and hand crushed petals. A class of its own from most single malt, absolutely distinctive. Wee soft perhaps, but for a good reason on not to 'soapy' it. (90/22)
    • Taste
      P- Metalic honey, slow roasting coffee berry, expressive citrus and floral extract,. Perfume-y with alluring scents of woman. (92/23)
    • Finish
      F- Medium long, elegant citrus, aromatic floral and juicy oak in harmony. Well restrained sweetness. (90/22)

      B/B- 93/23 Vatted with absolute care and skill for its distinctive style. Not the usual 18YO pasar malam.

      Weighted Rate- 90p Not as highly scored as the 2007 batch, but hell yes, this is superb.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Full, elegant and mild aroma. An interesting mix of fresh and dried fruits, but not like those from typical sherry casks. Sweetness mixes with acidity, but at the same time dryness comes in. Later, ripe or even dried apples. Spices. Cinnamon. Ripe citrus. The second time there are traces of vanilla, caramel and honey.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Dried fruits. Dried apples. Some sweets. A pinch of spices. Cinnamon. There is a slight acidity of fresher apples. A trace of oak bitterness. More spice than on the nose.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Full, rich. Dried fruit, dried apples. Less sweets. A bit of acidity. Light spice spice. Cinnamon again. A bit of oak, but quite nice. Then cocoa. Long finish.

  8. tangtang scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    pretty good 18 year old. Quite complex and round. PLV is ok
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sherry, oak, sweetness, fruity with honey notes, some herbs and light citrus fruits, vanilla comes through
    • Taste
      86 86
      a lot of sherry and spice, oak, a bit spicy on the tip of the tongue, malty and very slightly sweet, nuts come through, some honey taste with dried fruit
    • Finish
      85 85
      Lots of nuts, oak, a bit bitter but also sweet with honey and chocolate. At the end I think I can hear a little sherry.

    Molt does not meet expectations. Oak barrel dominance was especially disappointing

  10. marmeladow scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    very well balanced, easy to drink and not overly complex, successful mixture of age, bourbon and oloroso sherry casks, all well married. Different (slightly different) than the core range of Glenmorangie and also different from the superior and significantly more expensive Signet, but in itself a very good 18yo, maybe a little overpriced at the moment. The 70 € I paid is worth it all the time
