Nose

Very woody with hints of bitter chocolate, espresso and ground coffee as well as ginger, vanilla and coconut. It also contains some fruity notes like dried prunes and raisins. After a good minute or so some peppermint notes were reaching the surface.

Taste

The woodiness continues in the palate as well. Cinnamon and vanilla from the American oak and also some bourbon vanilla is noticeable. It's not all heavy because it goes into some fruity flavors, reminding me of blood oranges.

Finish

The finish is grassy, like dries hops but also menthol. Still woody as well, noticeable dark chocolate ad ground coffee. Still some fruitiness as well, the blood oranges are still present in the finish.

Coffeed whisky! I really like that It's 'dark' without a dominant sherry-influence, and retaining the fruity glenmorangie character at the same time.

Nose

It almost has a bourbon nose mixed with a quality red wine. There is some blackcurrant and plum jam. Some subtle mixed spices and toffee apple. 


Taste

Very warming with gentle spices and mixed fruit. There is some dryness and bitterness to it but it works well with the other flavours,works very well. There is also some sort of candy flavour going on. 


Finish

A long to medium finish that just sits in the background nicely, not strong but you know it's there. 


Comments

This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger. Wonderful stuff and would love a full bottle to explore.

Nose

Very round indeed, the alcohol not too present, with sherry, cocoa and vanilla. After a couple of minutes in the glass, a first sip and taking a deep breath, a fruity note emerges. Yellow fruits come to mind, more reminiscent of apricot jam than oranges.

Taste

The cocoa smell turns into a milky chocolate taste, with a slight bitterness hinting at cappuccino. More spicy than you would have expected after the sweet smell.

Finish

Long finish with more bitterness, milk chocolate turns into dark chocolate. Oak at the end.

Comments

Elegant presentation with a beautiful bottle design. Taking the price out of the equation this is a wonderful whisky. Well-balanced between creamy sweetness and spiciness. Take a big sip to fully experience its taste.

[September, 2010]  I had this dram during a Prof. Schobert tasting at Bonn.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85. My notes state a soft nose on heather and some spices.  The taste is full-bodied and a little biting.  It is best when taking larger sips.

There is no accounting for taste...
