Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie The Tayne

    Unique whisky because of the unique Amontillado sherry casks that have been used. Interesting layers, but quite a short finish.

    I also wonder why the used pigments to create the dark copper colour. In my opinion it doesn't add anything.

    For me the reason to have a bit lower rating.

    Interesting malt with an amontillado finish, not particularly sweet, but elegant.
    • Nose
      Fruity cherries, with brown sugar and cinnamon. Also sour notes and fermented grapes. Peaches and orange jam are added later.
    • Taste
      Fruity citrus fruits, full and powerful. Then pepper and walnuts. Marzipan.
    • Finish
      Bittersweet with caramel, walnut and chocolate. Spicy and dry.
