Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Margaux Cask Finish
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.63 points
- Bottle # 2736 sold empty at ebay.
- All in all, neat, the currently called price for me but of course not worth it.
The first impression is vinous, a little effervescence, raspberry, espresso, light acidity, more fruity than sweet, almost dry, with chocolate in the background, mint brings some freshness, actually chives, if you move the nose in the glass something
oily start, full-bodied, waxy, fruity, now also sweet, again sparkling, floral, the influence of wine is great, only with time comes through oak
the aftertaste is drier, whereby the red fruits last a long time, nuts, long-lasting, vanilla also comes through, also bitter grape skin
- To my taste, Glenmorangie does better with the new oak and bourbon casks finishes than wine/sherry finishes. They are the opposite of Macallan in that sense.
While this is not uninteresting, and the nose is quite nice if you can get past the surprisingly strong alcohol presence, there are just too few dimensions to rise to the level of complexity and nuance of the Ealanta and Artisan casks--once again, to my taste.
I'm still looking forward to trying one of the popular Malaga finished versions...
Very fruity and thick. Rich notes of lemon, nectarine and apple. Spices.
Fresh and balanced, vanilla. Boiled sweets, very creamy, tiramisu, toffee.
Medium long, gentle, malty and fruity
- "A snazzy bottling of 1987 vintage Glenmorangie with a fancy box and some
time finishing in casks that previously held wine from chateau Margaux.
A must for collectors of Glenmorangie."
- Waves of fruit (apple pie, orange marmalade, sultana, ripe pineapple),
accented with notes of dark chocolate, roasted nuts, and spice
(cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, evergreen), particularly on the finish. (In
the past, I’ve thought that a couple of these limited edition
Glemorangie wood finishes were a little overdone with the finishing, but
not this one).
