  3. ahroeen scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Very light and floral, vanilla. Some unpleasant bitterness on the finish. I could not find much wrong with it, but not anything to speak about either. All in all a weak, harmless and light whisky good for little more than preparing ones palate for proper stuff.

  4. The-Man-best-Friend scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nose mild, flowery, fruity. The nose is the best.
    Strong onset, slightly sprittig, peppery, but immediately watery.
    disposal; faster away than a D-train. Boring.

  5. TastyDram scored this whisky 1 points Expert Junior

    Color: pale straw.

    Nose: Honey and heather flowers take the lead. Citrus and vanilla are also present. A very sweet and accessible dram. Adding water rewards you with peaches, ripe grapes and a bit of crème brulée.

    Taste: Sweetness of honey, vanilla and floral accents. This reminds me of violets. Near the end I'm getting something nutty. Perhaps almonds. Water strengthens the floral and nutty flavours. There's also some lemon zest.

    Finish: Quite short with a nutty after-taste. Like putting an almond immersed in honey in your mouth.

    Conclusion: A typical Highlander. The sweetness and floral flavours make it very accessible.

    The golden Glenmorangie arouses curiosity, a whisky that has placed the bar high for the competition. Has for at least 10 years aged in American oak from the forests of the Ozark Mountains, Missouri, owned by the distillery itself.

    • Nose
      Vanilla, toffee, honey forms the base with hints of ripe juicy fruits such as apples, pears and berries. Tightening and several flavors of almonds, citrus and caramel are also to observe
    • Taste
      Soft and creamy exchanging sweet and spicy off. Ingredients like ginger, nutmeg, caramel, raisins and sugar are clearly over with hints of almonds and cloves.
    • Finish
      Long aftertaste of apple cider, fruit and pepper
