    Blindverkostung
    • Nose
      The whiskey brings me apple, lemon, vanilla and the associations of white wine, no smoke, it smells great. From the nose it has a rather low alcohol content, so 40-43%. He looks rather delicate and elegant
    • Taste
      I taste sweet vanilla, citrus and apple again, and lots of caramel. A light spice is also there and some oak. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy. The low alcohol content is confirmed
    • Finish
      At the finish, the oak is a little bit stronger and a slight bitterness sets in, the caramel stays in the mouth. The finish is not eternal, but quite medium

    Westport 1997 (15 years) - private filling, 58.1%
    Scotland, single cask bottling limited to 253 bottles.

    The distillery may not be named on the bottle for licensing reasons. However, Westport has established itself as the name of Glenmorangie's single casks, bottled by independent bottlers. He is not allowed to call himself a single malt whiskey either, as he is mostly a fan of Glenmorangie, to which a few drops of Glen Moray have been added. Thus, strictly speaking, it is a "blended malt", often called "teaspoon malt". As Glenmorangie is not allowed to be mentioned, bottlers soon became known as Westport, under which Glenmorangie used to sell barrels for blending.

    Nose: Tropical fruits, sourish apples, vanilla, a lot of vanilla. Something grassy freshness. The high alcohol content is then only very soft and already well integrated. Apricot comes up and sweetly floats in the background.

    Palate: Sweet and fruity, vanilla and honey, mango. With water, the fruit is softer, oak tones move to the foreground.

    Finish: strong but entertaining with beautiful fruit notes that stick to the tongue.

    Conclusion: Pleasant and quite round, highly recommended. Not really complex, though.
