  3. Armin Fuchs scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The flavours are not quite steady;

    not very deep;

    somewhat flat - especially compared with the Madeira Finish from the corresponding vintages;

    but all in all quite pleasant ...
    • Nose
      Port wine, barrel, cherries, little plums, caramel(pudding), some chocolate, espresso powder, some cappuccino, nearly apples and pears, tobacco, red grapes, idea of (orange blossom) honey, a little window cleaner besides the alcohol
    • Taste
      quickly becomes syrupy, sweetness - tartness - a bit sour (idea of citrus), Port barrel, light pastries (Bisquit?), apples, leather, wood, caramel sweetness has difficulties to get through, later chocolate and coffee 
    • Finish
      medium finish - gently and slowly warming, tart (very tart), barrel, wood, port wine, gingerbread spice, apple peel, becoming dry and bitter

    This is an earlier bottling than the distillery`s current port wood finished

    expression, Quinta Ruban, and it`s really quite different.

    • Nose
      Lots of fruit - dark cherries, prunes, dates. A slight earthiness from the port
      perhaps. A pleasant malty sweetness.
    • Taste
      Smooth and sweet. The brighter notes normally found in Glenmorangie are definitely subdued, but it's very nice.
    • Finish
      It's in no hurry as it eases itself off your tongue with more soft, dried fruit sweetness
