    overall a very smooth, mellow and mature single malt that is easy to drink and only show's weakness on th palate

      very delicate; slight sweetness; citrus notes; lemon; lime; tangerine; apples; pears; peach; dried fruits in the backround; slight spices; hints of oak; overall a good, complex and mellow nose
    • Taste
      very mild/mellow; sweet barley; slight vanilla; (dryed) fruits; nuts; after some time more exotic flavors like coconut; very smooth and mellow although the lack of %vol is noticable
    • Finish
      oak; spices more dominant; hints of chocolate; sweetness in the backround; (bitter) friuts; hints of coffee; nuts; surprisingly intense and long finish

    • Nose
      Vanilla, toffee, honey forms the base with hints of ripe juicy fruits such as apples, pears and berries. Tightening and several flavors of almonds, citrus and caramel are also to observe.
    • Taste
      Soft and creamy exchanging sweet and spicy off. Ingredients like ginger, nutmeg, caramel, raisins and sugar are clearly over with hints of almonds and cloves
       
    • Finish
      Long aftertaste of apple cider, fruit and pepper

    The golden Glenmorangie arouses curiosity, a whisky that has placed the bar high for the competition. Has for at least 10 years aged in American oak from the forests of the Ozark Mountains, Missouri, owned by the distillery itself.

    A classic!

  7. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This is clearly the entry level malt from Glenmorangie
    and hence easily obtainable in your local supermarket.
    • Nose
      The nose differs quite a bit from the old version.
      Vanille, toffee, honey: all three return. So Dr Lumsden did his homework. But I
      get some more fruit here: apples, pears and some berries. A bit creamier than the old one, too. Caramel as well.
      Much better.
    • Taste
      The attack is the middle between weak and creamy. Sweet and spicy (ginger and nutmeg). I get the fruit
      from the nose again, but also caramel, raisins and candy sugar! This might even
      be labelled complex (sorry, but after the old 10 I was not expecting this).
      Towards the end, I also get almonds and cloves. A layered whisky.
    • Finish
      In the finish I get some Apple cider and pepper. Medium
      in length and pleasant.

  8. karloff scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    One of the best affordible malts out there. My mate says if you go to heaven and meet St. Peter his breath will smell of Glenmorangie
    • Nose
      Sweet, malty and oaky
    • Taste
      a lovley taste of honey and almonds
    • Finish
      Long and dry.
