Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie 2005 SMWS 125.76

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.83 points

  1. thebonewolf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    As a peat fan, I found this thoroughly enjoyable. It’s unique among whiskies I’ve tried as I don’t recall ever getting such a distinct peach flavor (or even a faint one, at that). This was bursting with flavor, and the color is unbelievably light for the age and only a second fill barrel. I found myself thinking, “This is what an unpeated whisky should taste like.” Hell of a cask, this one.
    • Nose

      Buttery and malty. Putty. Light stone fruit.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Malty, peach, minor heat, cereal.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Bigger malt and cereal. Peach leaps out after. Long.

    SMWS notes:

    We found the nose sweet, attractive and relaxing – like meeting an old friend; lemon puff biscuits, honeyed oak, varnished pine, orange blossom, juicy peaches and Granny Smiths. The palate provided lemon sponge cake, clover honey, dried figs and raspberry Ruffle bar – that dark chocolate bitterness being augmented on the finish by some tannic oak. The reduced nose was clean, bright and invigorating – fruit cocktail, orange Mivvi, sherbet fountains and ‘lemon lip balm kisses in a flower meadow’. The reduced palate had seductive sweetness (marzipan, plum jam) with restrained spiced orange and dark chocolate gently reverberating on the finish.
