  2. Drochaid scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Aroma: Dark mint chocolate, tangerines and Seville oranges
    mingle with sandalwood and walnut before giving way to a spicy finish of pepper
    and nutmeg.

    Taste: Mint chocolate and walnuts envelop the palate like
    velvet, laying the foundations for rose, Turkish delight and sweet Seville

    Finish: Long lasting silky aftertaste leaving dark chocolate
    mints and traces of orange.

    Colour: Sunlit rose gold

    I don't mind a dram of this any day. It's mature for its age, and very enjoyable on the palate. If you like sweet whisky with a slight kick, this is for you. Go and buy. You won't regret it. 
    • Nose
      Spices. A dry sweetness which is obviously the port influence. Also a chunk of oak in there. 
    • Taste
      Dry sweetness and a teaspoon of mixed spices. There's cinnamon and a pinch of pepper. The port becomes obvious further down the sip, as the sweetness takes over. 
    • Finish
      Medium. Oaky sweetness together with lingering spice and barley sugar. A bit of chocolate if you try for it. A bit thick too, oily. It tends to stay.

    quite a surprising Glenmorangie for me. Like it very much !
    • Nose
      oak and citrus. Buttery and a hint of seaweed. Raisins, a bit of chocolate and some port.
    • Taste
      slightly peppery and spicy. Delicious sweetness of port and tropical fruits like papaya and mango. Also madarins and after-eight.
    • Finish
      very sweet in combination with a pleasant little pepper and longlasting

    I love this version, it is a 12 yr and full of flavor. It is priced right and is great on the port, subtle of mocha and spice on the finish. Drinkable on any occasion
