    All in all, neat, the currently called price for me but of course not worth it.
    • Nose
      86 86
      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
    • Taste
      88 88
      oily start, full-bodied, waxy, fruity, now also sweet, again sparkling, floral, the influence of wine is great, only with time comes through oak
    • Finish
      87 87
      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...

    • Nose
      Very fruity and thick. Rich notes of lemon, nectarine and apple. Spices.
    • Taste
      Fresh and balanced, vanilla. Boiled sweets, very creamy, tiramisu, toffee.
    • Finish
      Medium long, gentle, malty and fruity

  5. mmaclean scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    "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).
