Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Burgundy Wood Finish
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.40 points
Woody, red grapes and raisins with sea saltiness and overripe red berries.
Quite tannic and peppery, there is a vanilla sweetness here but the oak wood runs the show. The saltiness comes through in the middle with a bit of the red fruit.
Medium length and earthy. Quite dry but leaves a lasting honey grape sweetness.
- This used to be about 40 EUR, but it is not a bad
thing that you can no longer fin dit. There is much better stuff out there on
the market. This sort of whisky tells me again why I have a love-hate
relationship with wine finishes.
The nose is very sweet with orangettes (orange gum in
pure chocolate), honey, cake and something that reminds of rosehip. That must
be the wine influence. Caramel and strawberries after a few minutes. I must
admit, it is not bad at all.
The palate is somewhat light and unfortunately a bit
sourish. The wine takes the upper hand. Behind that I get some crystallized
sugar and malt, rhubarb marmalade and honey. But the wine kills the slightly peppered taste.
The finish is spicy and somewhat long. The wine fades at the end and allows the fruit to
mercifully rear its head.
- This edition to the Glenmorangie line is a wonderful style scotch. I
really think the scotch is best had with a fruit dessert or after a
roast lamb dinner. Not my favorite, however a decent scotch for an
everyday drinking type of dram.
