    Smooth whisky with a Sauternes finish that gives it more power and aromas. Next to the Quinta Ruban my favorite of the Glenmorangie series.

    The nose pleases despite the slight alcohol note and arouses the desire to try.
    Here is one of the rather rare whiskys that manage to increase the taste compared to the smell. The finish is nice, very pleasant, but a bit one-sided.
    I like it in the mouth very much. The other two components fall off a bit. Overall, a solid, pleasant whisky on the rather sweet side.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, citrus, orange, peach, parsley, honey, a little freshly cut wood, a delicate alcoholic stinging, a little apple
    • Taste
      Soft body, noticeable start, delicately astringent, sweet, apricot, orange, caramel, milk chocolate, a hint of white pepper
    • Finish
      Pleasant notes of wood without bitterness, a lot of caramel, a little malt, medium length

    Very close to the signature Glenmorangie style, but I find it doesn’t really grab me. The sauternes cask finish doesn’t, in my opinion, bring out enough extra aspects to this whisky, or helps it develop some stand-out character and development. It’s a very nice, easy going whisky, but perhaps a bit too straightforward to be truly engaging. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll probably love this. And if you were ever trying to lure someone into liking whisky, this would do the trick. But truth be told, the original 10 yo would very likely get the job done as well, and that one is considerably cheaper.

      It has this soft buttery note which over time develops into a vanilla – custard note. There’s white fruit (melon, apricot) and some soft green tropical notes like kiwi as well. Something gently cereal, making for a vanilla cookie note. Definitely wine notes too, although not necessarily sweet, this comes across more like a medium dry white wine, but without any astringency. It does become noticeably more sweet over time as well as spicy and very softly musky as some nutmeg shows up (from the sémillon and sauvignon blanc, perhaps?). Overall quite nice, but perhaps a bit ‘simple’ and ‘easy’ as the dessert wine mostly ads sweetness to what is already soft and sweet to begin with? Let’s see what a drop of water does to this… It does accentuate some white fruit notes, but also brings an almost granulated sugary sweetness to it.

      the spices are more obvious and upfront, although this still remains soft, with sweet cereal and vanilla as the obvious notes, with a light-medium mouthfeel. I didn’t really pick up a million different flavours from this on the palate, but after some water there’s clear notes of white fruit and grapes, and it does bring out a more dry mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The finish mostly echoes what the palate brings and it’s not overly long with a spice note (nutmeg again) that lingers about a bit.

  7. Mascht scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A nice starter, nice and balanced on the nose, but accompanied by a bitter spiciness in the taste, but still a nice aroma profile.
    • Nose
      84 84
      light and pleasantly sweet, vanilla, freshly cut grass, sweet grapes, orange zest and a pinch of cinnamon
    • Taste
      83 83
      dry and astringent of grape seeds, bitter oranges, gingerbread, walnuts and ginger but also somewhat metallic
    • Finish
      83 83
      medium length and warming, notes of honey and oak remain

  8. domani scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Varied on the nose with a nice honey sweetness, the palate and finish are largely monotonous, which makes a large bottle unnecessary. The predecessor at 12 years old had a little more to offer in terms of cask influence - 01/29/2022
    • Nose
      84 84
      Sweet, honey, vanilla, citrus notes, grassy, herbs, coriander, lavender
    • Taste
      81 81
      Dry, immediate bitterness, turmeric, one can only guess at the finish, honey
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium length with oak spice, bitter walnut, dry sawdust, honey
