hs305 gave this whisky 89 points

[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!

Can't follow Dr. Bill on this one. I find the body and finish not too pleasing. I have the feeling of drinking two separate drinks. The (seemingly sweet) whisky and the quite dry wine in the finish that is not well incorporated in the whisky ((((at all)))). Tasting it blind, it seemed like a dry sheery, which was confusing due to the sweetness of the dram, but after getting to know it was wine, I detected some traces of it. The bugger, as always, but it remains in imbalance to me and tooooo sweet.


Nevertheless, I am happy to have tasted it.

[June, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 59 Euro in April, 2012.

[October, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in Mai, 2012.

[November, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in October, 2012.

[December, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in October, 2012.

[December, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in October, 2012.

[May, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in October, 2012.

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.

13 Aug 2016 2:50 pm

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.
