  2. Koning scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A bit unbalanced. Impressions of Schwarzwalder Kirsch (cherry-chocolate pie) and After Eight, but at the same time a bit 'green', oaky and astringent. The fruity and smooth character of Glenmorangie hardly shines through
    .
    • Nose
      Fresh (clean laundry), cacao,mint candy, cherries, citrus, gooseberry, band-aid/plaster
      .
    • Taste
      Green/vegetal, grapefruit,chocolote,mint,walnuts, a bit woody and astringent (tannins)
      .
    • Finish
      A bit spicy, mandarine, sour cherries, oaky and a bit astringent again. Also a bit waxy and a hint of smoke
      .

  4. uap304 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Sweet with fruits and honey. Strong whiffs of canned cranberry and strawberry mini-wheat filing (!), as well as a hint of bourbon.
    • Taste
      Thick, mouth-watering and mouth-coating. Nicely spicy and assertive, apple, those gooey-filled strawberry hard candies, red fruit roll-ups, and the underlying distillery house style in the background. Really nice!
    • Finish
      Medium length. A little hot, woody and bitter, complex, full-bodied, heavy and interesting, a bit demanding but your attention is rewarded.

  7. Wtrstrnghlt scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose: soft fruit, winegums, powdered sugar, crème brulee. 

    Feels a bit thin, but pleasant. 

    Taste: spicy arrival. Peper and sugar. Red fruits like cassis. Very sweet, but also a bit drying on the tongue. 

    Finish: quite long, sweet with some oak.

    Easy dram, decent, but that's just it.

  8. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    One of the first whiskies I ever had. And still a decent dram. 
    • Nose
      Sweet and fresh. Honey and red fruits. Slight tingly spice. Vanilla. 
    • Taste
      Soft sweet arrival. Then spices emerge on balance with honey and red fruit and a mild citrus note. 
    • Finish
      Smooth finish, but the spices erupt immediately. Sweetness drop quickly for a drying and lingering finish with mild fruit. 

  9. pianoman scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Dark fruits, plums, berries. Creamy. Bananas and sugared oranges.
    • Taste
      Heavy. Plums, pickled sweet cherries. Chocolate. Slightly peppery, slightly sticky. Sweet and dry.

  10. J.K.Ch scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Totally decent whisky, but it's not exactly my style. I would appreciate the fruit more mature. On the other hand, being in the barrels after the port is quite fresh. So lovers of lighter and lighter whiskys could come to theirs.
    • Nose
      Less ripe fruit and a less ripe pear, similar to Glenmorangie 10 Yo. Fine influence of port wine. Somewhere I saw Christmas. And yes, you are there.
    • Taste
      A special warm pear aroma, a chocolate truffle candy, a hint of grapes, and a bitter bitterness, perhaps like a burgundy bunch of grapes and unripe fruit. Traces of high-chocolate chocolate.
    • Finish
      The mouthpiece is quite long, fruity, with a hint of oranges and some unidentifiable exotic fruit for me. Generally, the sound is drier and slightly bitter.
