  1. tangtang scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    quite tasty, not particularly complex, but quite good for a 12 year old malt
    • Nose
      very fruity, grapes, sweet, dried fruits, mint, very fresh with citrus fruits, later becoming a little nutty
    • Taste
      sweet, fruity, honey, becoming spicy, nutty, aromatic, becoming somewhat bitter
    • Finish
      Nutty, sweet finish, fading into bitter. Dried fruits in the background

  2. Numwierum scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Smell: Sweet, red grapes, plums, followed by a little honey and subtle mint.
    Taste: Intense sweet fruit aromas, raisins, sultanas and oranges. In addition to the sweetness, light spicy notes come through.
    Finish: Medium long, slightly spicy oak spreads out.
    Conclusion: sweet, fruity and without missing notes, bottled with optimal drinking strength but not very complex, simply a good drinking whisky!

      Dessert-wine-like finish.

    Glenmorangie Málaga 12 Years Old was matured first in Bourbon barrels and then for four years in Dulce barrels, a rare wine barrel used in southern Spain. An experiment that was successful.
    It is rounded off in barrels that once contained one of the rarest distilled wines in the world. Glenmorangie Málaga 12 Years Old is wonderfully sweet, with notes of honey and mild spices.
