  1. Gaija scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Elegant yet pretty discrete nose on macadamia nut, the palate is then much more expressive on surprising notes of oysters (!) and bergamot. Not only good, interesting as well !

  2. SAND scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    (TASTED BLIND)
    NOSE: Pinewood, resin, banana, a little vanilla, dried and fresh yellow fruits. Fruitier with time. Clean. Quite concentrated aromas. Appears to have a fairly high ABV? (89p).
    TASTE: Mineral with a tight and lightly acidic fruitiness. Mildly vegetal (cooked vegetables). Improves with water; softens and sweetens, remaining nicely mineral but fruitier and less acidic. (88p).
    FINISH: Fruity, a bit short? (85p).
    OVERALL: A tight and mineral bourbon cask aged whisky which benefits significantly from water. Total score 87 points.

    I bought this bottle in 2007 for the retail price of maybe 40 USD, drank most of it over the next three years, and put the bottle in my cabinet at about 15% full for the next 9 years before unearthing it around christmas 2019. So the notes are not extensive because the bottle isn’t fresh. I remember it being salty when I first opened it but that note and taste is long gone.

    Nose: mead.

    Palate: vanilla candles, nuts and honey

    Finish: white pepper, lime peels, medium length

  7. DanishDistilled scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Pretty good, nothing amazing. An average value of 254 Euros is pure insanity (quality-wise).. There's 30-50 Euro whisky that is at the same level as this one.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Elderflower, flowers, honey, oranges. Very interesting nose, very floral. Apples, butter, banana. Smells of "bright" things..
    • Taste
      85 85
      Lots of vanilla, oak, butter. Some pears. Tastes quite good, but is a little flatter than I would expect.

      83 83
      Oak, sherry-ish notes. Medium length

    • Nose
      Vanilla, sweet apples, sweet citrus, oatmeal, granary dust, fudge, lemon peel, ascorbic, spicy herbs, honey, hints of freshly planed board, sea freshness, just a little furniture lacquer. To 43 degrees pretty powerful. 22
    • Taste
      Light, moderately sweet. Pepper, fruit motifs, sweet caramel, ascorbic. A little salt. 21
    • Finish
      Medium in length, warming, slightly astringent. In the final stage, bitterness comes to the fore. 21
      Pleasant, balanced whisky. The balance is 21.

  13. Mondrian scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Vanilla, perfume, apples, malt, peppery, peach. Regular first fill bourbon cask flavours with good body and that little extra perfumy note that is not floral (rose, calendula) but more herbal. Is that musk? Yeah, that's that after shave of my brother. With vanilla popcorn. And that oldschoolish oakiness that I often find in Glenmorangie.

    recently stumbled upon 2 bottles of this in a store selling at US$52 a piece, didn't hesitate and purchased 2, opened a bottle a few days ago.

    nose & taste: sweet, refined, fruity, caramel, butterscotch and floral,a step above the glenmorangie original

    with a touch of water: opens up nicely, magnificent, elegant, a step above hibiki 12, enhances a LOT

  18. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Poor malt, very one-dimensional and meaningless.
    • Nose
      Lots of vanilla and very soft. There are still some alpine herbs on the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet, light, soft. Vanilla and tidy barrel flavor. Classic Bourbon maturation.
    • Finish
      Something bitter and a lot of spices. Disappears quickly from the mouth.

  19. bojanglesryan scored this whisky 91 points Newbie

    The trick for this whisky, which is exquisite, is to let it oxidize with care. 

    After a few months, it acquires a much more powerful finish and a truly stronger initial taste. 

    Truly one of Glenmorangie's best. Underrated, under-appreciated, and due to its hard to attain nature, under-reviewed. Easily the equivalent of far more expensive scotches. 

    An essential to have for a Glenmorangie lover, and a beautiful addition to any scotch collection.

  21. Angelos scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    It is well suited as an aperitif. I have to admit, this bottle here remained half full for a quite while in the basement!... Result?... In my opinion much better because of some oxidation!
    • Nose
      The nose of this one here is similar to a white wine. Ripe grapes and some melt butter. Mellow citrus notes, some cherry and also some vanilla.
    • Taste
      Vanilla and some cherry, memories of an Silvaner white wine, I had last week in a pub. Cooked fruits that have already lost taste, some unripe pears and unripe pineapples. A bit weak in taste, at least in the beginning
    • Finish
      In the end it is getting briny and dry. Vanilla and citrus notes fade increasingly. Sorry, but i cant call that finish... A bit disappointing.

  22. Jai scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    The best Glenmorangie I have ever drunk. Well balanced, really smooth with sweet vanilla.

    But according to what I have heard, Cellar 13 won´t longer offered (at least in Germany).

  23. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Matured in a warehouse by the sea, this Glenmorangie has a more salty,

    fresh character with a whiff of iodine. Originally for Duty Free only.

  24. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    This is a very drinkable whisky, but I want more attack...
    • Nose
      Very sweet, vanilla and sweet lemon(is that possible?).
    • Taste
      Smooth taste, honey, vanilla and oak.
    • Finish
      Short finish. Shame really..
