  1. korry78 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Glenmorangie 30 yo ‘Oloroso Cask Finish’ (44.3%, OB, 4548 bottles, bottled 2004)  Nose: very special, on watercress and walnut skin, with some notes of Darjeeling tea. Very subtle and just superb. The mouth is rounded, sweet but nervous and complex. Some nice notes of ripe bananas, fructose, tropical fruits, getting quite smoky, spicy and gingery. This one is pure pleasure. 90 points.

    calling this a finish is correct, but please note this was first filled into ex-bourbon hogsheads in 1972, it was matured in Oloroso sherry butts from December 1989 and bottled without chill filtration at cask strength in 2004 (so 'finished' in Oloroso for at least 14 years).

    That is different cook than the 3 months finishing that is usual nowadays (or different biscuit)

    The color is dense brown. Nose, euphoric, expected Sherry barrel finish specific vintage leather! On the body, the elegant sweetness of sherry barrels (grape skins and bitter chocolate) is on top of the citrus freshness (not limited to Glenmorange, an orange peel sense common to old vintage bottles). In the finish, through the nose, a long afterglow. http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=6461

    The nose is peppery with moist grass and a dark nuttiness. A

    beautiful herbal note with well-balanced sweetness and a touch of sherry. The

    palate is smooth and rich with notes of esters and bubblegum, a touch of smoke

    and allspice with a little fruitcake. The finish is long and sherried with a

    little spice.
