    After many disappointing Glenmorangies with fancy names, experimental cask finishes and no age statements I was happy to find this one very satisfying.
    "Extremely Rare" is an exageration, it's an easy drinking basic sherry finish with a price tag not too inflated.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Pleasant and inviting.
      Honey sweet with a subtle sherry caracter.
      Oranges, an apple, chocolate shavings.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Just about what you expect from the nose.
      Sweet honey and vanilla arrival.
      Oranges and a little spice comes along nicely.
      Quite bright fruityness, apricot, pears?
    • Finish

      Medium lenght.
      Some chocolate and nuts.

    Here's another controversial bottle. From the point of view of PLV a clear buy recommendation from me. Why? He is certainly not in the front but for this money you get relatively easy a rich and very mild mouthfeel. Also a really great finish. House whisky.

      He needs time in the glass. Then it goes with pleasure through the sweet nutty drying meadow. Behind it are small vanilla sticks in lemon water. Nose is a little too sharp. Peppery oak? Another peppermint? Nose ok. but hopefully the main part will be better.

      Oily and smooth with appropriate spice freight you go. Light vanilla with fresh mowed flower meadow. Now it gets a bit woodier in the direction of peat and pepper. A still mild and also full mouthfeel. Balanced as it should be. Good choice of barrel.

      He sounds long and very friendly. ! The best part.! Drying oak, nutty to malty with floral notes.
      Glorious. Now getting drier but wonderfully rounded. He goes and goes and goes. Wow. Refill is announced. class

    Nose: great aroma with many fruits, lemon and juice orange are prominent, some mango and other exotic are also present, brown sugar and a pinch of vanilla, light and flowery with a breath of old wood. Very round and pleasing, which in this case is nothing bad.
    Taste: softer onset but always "sparkling" is. Lots of citrus, orange peel and honey sweetness, dried apricots and a hint of ecotic fruit and spices, the finish shows next to some Nimm2 fruitiness and sweetness especially the oak. Since the 18 years Fassreifung are properly present. Great taste and nice wood on the finish, but seems a bit too styled.
    I'm surprised - I think it's really alright even if it was obviously created as a pleasing malt for the masses.

    Bang-on sherried malt, but pricey. Do not add much water.
