  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    good to drink
    very straightforward
    intense taste
    I have a feeling of fast food sweets that taste good
    what you are looking for in vain: surprise, excitement, adventure or noble
    What you get here: a delicious tasty chocolate peach whisky
    If you are looking for it, you should buy it: delicious

    I liked the nose the best
    an always welcomed dram
    • Nose
      new rubber soles at the shoemaker
      then fresh peaches
      later still raisin chocolate
    • Taste
      a lot of chocolate and peach lolly, tasty
    • Finish
      medium
      the fruits become woody and slightly bitter
      the peach lolly comes again

    • Nose
      Prunes, wine motifs, raisins, plum jam. The second wave adds a freshly planed board, weak lacquer notes. 22
    • Taste
      Moderately dry, moderately. Citrus, pepper and other spices, a little salt, bitter-sour wild berries. 22
    • Finish
      Medium in length, enveloping, smoothly fading. 21
      Balanced, tasty, drinkable, “combed”, but not boring whisky. The balance is 22.

    Not an every day drinker, at least for me, because of the wine-y sulphur notes. However, the sulphur is not negative per se, but in my case this is a dram that I really need to be in the mood for. And if I am, it is highly enjoyable, fairly complex and decently balanced.
    • Nose
      Proper meaty and rich stuff, and quite dry actually. There's a hint of gun powder, accompanied by coffee beans, orange zest and subtle floral notes. Finally a slight earthiness, like you'll find in a damp dunnage warehouse.
    • Taste
      Oily and thick, and as dry as the nose already suggest. Hints of rubber and gun powder, accompanied by dark chocolate, cinnamon, cloves and nutty flavours, as well as plenty of oak and a surprising amount of salinity.
    • Finish
      Lingering sulphur notes, drying. Hint of dark berries.

    Normally I am not such a big fan of maturation on ex-wine barrels, often a bit sour or sour taste that does not work with me.
    This companta, however, is the big exception to the rule for me: Beautiful full and fruity whisky, with also nice coffee flavors and flavors. Very nice dram, I think this is (by far) the best whisky on ex-wine barrels I have drunk so far.
    • Nose
      Ooh yes! Red fruit, coffee, cappuccino. Also some orange. Full, beautiful fragrance, plums now too.
    • Taste
      Sweet, full and soft. Fruity, red fruit, berries. Also somewhat spicy, cinnamon. And also the coffee / cappuccino taste.
    • Finish
      Soft and full, quite long. Fruity weather, red fruit. And spicy. Also some peach, and again the coffee / cappuccino.

  6. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    highly praised, but due to the lack of viscosity and the dominant wood influences not convincing for me - albeit not bad
    • Nose
      clear red wine notes in front of dark caramel, red berry fruit (forest fruit mix), earth and dark coffee, but overall very fruity-sweet
    • Taste
      first minimal fruity, slight sulfur, then spice explosion, especially pepper, oak and delicate chocolate, but rather quickly faded and very light, almost watery mouthfeel
    • Finish
      gets extremely dry

  7. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Another great sample from Glenmorangi, an excellent balance, a solid character, a snappy, easy, summer, vacation - quite complex to not be boring, simple enough to not distract from rest.
    • Nose
      Mineral, dry, invigorating, drying stones after the summer rain, in the background - light notes of citrus and dried apricots, cream, boiled sugar, lemonade tones and crushed monstrance. In general - light, summer, carefree.
    • Taste
      Sweet, raisins, a little oak bitterness - to set off the sweetness, dried apricots, a little pepper, ginger, pancake.
    • Finish
      Light ginger burning, a little salt, creamy toffee, raisins, peaches, lemon in sweet tea.

    [September, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 80 Euro in February, 2014.

    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 82,5.  My notes state an impressive and bold sweet winey taste that is spoiled with significant sulphurous notes, unfortunately...

    Nose could be better, very powerful casks bring lot of aromas and wood impact. Without getting dry or to bitter.
