[September, 2017]  I bought this bottle for 60 Euro in April, 2012.  Somehow I am in the mood to do a proper review of this whisky that I drank that often already.  

The colour is burnished and the texture shows slow legs and fat sticky tears (that promises a great mouthfeel).  The nose offers a bold sweet winey and vanilla-toffee profile with some delicious homegrown fruits aromas that is all nicely balanced.  The mouthfeel is exactly as the texture promised:  warming and instantly coating with a slight peppery feeling.  The taste is very rich and creamy again with strong sweet wine flavours and honey-driven toffee notes within a firm wooden structure.  I like that even if it is not very complex - but who needs complexity in such a quaffable profile?  The finish is of medium length and adds some spicier flavours to the taste that are highly welcome here.  Some water releases more aromas both in the nose and on the palate and I like it better with some drops added.

This is an easy and dangerously quaffable dram that should not be analysed but simply...enjoyed!  Slainte!

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it four times 90 and two times 87,5.  My notes state simply a dangerously quaffable dram...

[November, 2012]  I had another dram during a Lion's club tasting near Würzburg.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  I took no detailed notes as I knew it before.

Glenmorangie 'Artein' (46%, OB, 2011/2012) Four stars A brand new one, not yet in the market. It was finished in Sassicaia casks, a well-known Bordeaux-style red Tuscan wine, and is a blend of 1990 and 1996. We’re tasting it from a lab preview sample bottle. Colour: apricot. Nose: burst with red berries and peaches at first sniffs, with the maltiness underneath. Raspberries, cranberries, a little bubblegum or marshmallows and then a feeling of Champagne rosé - rather saignée here. Strange because that’s rather ‘pinot noir’ while Sassicaia is almost pure cab. Evolves more towards toasted bread (covered with raspberry jam) and a little gunpowder. Mouth: the ‘whisky’ part is bigger on the palate but there’s still these notes of red berries, especially the jams made thereof. Also peaches again, maybe liquorice allsorts, and then more black pepper and cardamom, as well as a faint touch of rubber that’s not unpleasant at all – maybe that’s actually blackcurrant buds, a typical cabernety thing. Also notes of orange drops. Finish: medium long, clean, even more on marshmallows, with some green pepper in the aftertaste. Comments: works very well in my opinion, with the wine’s fruitiness well in the front but without any excessive vinous notes. SGP:741 - 85 points.

Russetmuscat
Nose

Äpfel, helle Weintrauben, Ahornsirup, Honig, Aprikosen, Erdbeer-Campino, nasses Heu, salziges Fudge, im Hintergrund etwas Eiche.

Taste

Würze, etwas Eiche, spürbare Bitterkeit, leichte Süße, Kaffeenoten, im Hintergrund Pfirsische, helle Weintrauben.

Finish

Der würzige Zug bleibt relativ lange im Mund, der Kaffeegeschmack wird stärker, bevor er verschwindet. Die Eiche ist doch spürbar, verwunderlich bei 15 Jahren.

Glenmorangie Artein, 15 Jahre, 46% alc. Originalabfüllung
Ausbau: Bourbonfässer, Super-Tuscan-Weinfässer
Region: Highlands, Schottland

Nase: Süß und fruchtig....die Süße steht erst einmal über allem. Süße, Süße, klebrige Süße. Mit Zuckermelasse, Invertzuckercreme, etwas Ahornsirup und Akazienhonig. Darin nehmen einige Früchte ihr leicht parfümiertes Schaumbad: Aprikosen, sehr reife Pfirsiche, rote Äpfel, gezuckerte Erdbeeren. Auch kommen Assoziationen zu Fruchtgummi auf. Im Hintergrund milder Holzrauch und Zimtschnecken.

Gaumen: Wie die Nase, aber intensiver. Zudem deutlich mehr Würze als im Geruch. Einiges an trockenen Hölzern und Eichentanninen. Dahinter Pfirsicharomen, Gewürznelken, Bratapfel und rote Früchte.

Abgang: Lang, die Süße weicht der Würze, welche von Kaffee und Zartbitterschokolade ergänzt wird, Bitterkaramell am Ende.

Fazit: Schönes Teil, wirklich zu empfehlen.

88/100 Punkte (verkostet 2015, mittlerweile ca. 200 €)
Ich danke Thomas Zilm (Brand Ambassador) für Probe und Foto!
