  1. BeatF scored this whisky 84 points Moderator

    Everything perfectly styled: the beautiful packaging, the elegant bottle and the composed content
    • Nose
      Vanilla, menthol, grapes, the finest bitterness of an oak barrel, everything crystal clear
    • Taste
      It thickens: oranges, milk chocolate, even some coffee
    • Finish
      And now it gets thicker like syrup or molasses: Orangeade, a scent from a wood fire, all backed by vanilla

    Good nose - orange marmalade and smoke. Nice depth to the taste. Usual Morangie, smooth and rich, but with a background hint of peat smoke. Finish is definitely minty, but not overpoweringly so. A real nice whisky and deserves a higher score than Murray`s stingy one in the 2011 Bible.

    Distillers Tasting Notes:

    Colour - Deep Amber

    Aroma - Caramelised orange and peaches soaked in liqueur are instantly revealed before giving way to sugared almonds, raisins, lime and a hint of distant woodsmoke.

    Taste - Mandarin, marmalade and hints of cherry brandy combine with the spiciness of nutmeg and ginger before icing sugar, chewy meringue and violet build up slowly on the palate.

    Finish - Full, rounded aromatic smoke with chalky minerals lingers on top of subtle layers of powdery floral scents.

    Love this private edition of Glenmorangie. When I first tried it I was

    blown away that it had sweet, spice, smoke, finish! This also is nice on

    the ABV 46% is very drinkable still for even the beginner.
