    This is a good find for most. I feel fortunate to get a scotch like this and although a bit dated, it is a keeper!!
    • Nose
      Floral on the nose, with subtle hints of cherries and dried fruit.
    • Taste
      some banana cream pie, with bits of cinnamen and vanilla. small taste of oils and nuts with lots of fruit.
    • Finish
      Nice finish, big at the front, and flavor toward the end with again hints of fruit and vanilla.

  9. Segens scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    This whisky has a very good nose and taste and you realize that the Burgundy Wood Finish is really something special. Unfortunately The finish is very wooden and bitter and therefore the dram remains worse in the mouth as it actually is.

  11. drkrylov scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Finished in Burgundy barrels, this is one earthy

    Glenmorangie, an interesting dram for sure, and one that bears little

    resemblance to the standard bottling.

  12. granella2003 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Woody, red grapes and raisins with sea saltiness and overripe red berries.
    • Taste
      Quite tannic and peppery, there is a vanilla sweetness here but the oak wood runs the show. The saltiness comes through in the middle with a bit of the red fruit.
    • Finish
      Medium length and earthy. Quite dry but leaves a lasting honey grape sweetness

  13. The Macallan scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Lovely aroma's and dito wine finish, doesn't dissapoint you.
    • Nose
      Cereal like, rich and a dominat fruit character, sweet (reduced: hints of coffee/vanilla, crème brûlé, sweet fruit, peaches, very rich and complex)
    • Taste
      Light sparkling, velvety and spicy, dry (reduced: surprisingly explosive, fruity and a light sweetness).
    • Finish
      Soft at first and then a burst of spices, wich slowely merging in to pepper.

    Seems simple at first, but then develops stylishly.
    • Nose
      Toasty.
    • Taste
      Big. Soft. Syrupy. Sweetish. Very fruity. Winey. Easily drinkable.
    • Finish
      Lurking behind, and emerging gradually, restrained balancing dryness of toast and oak.

  17. Aristocat scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    Nice whisky, drinkable but a bit harsh, alcoholic, taste. There are better Glenmorangies out there. It misses something.

  18. mmaclean scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This edition to the Glenmorangie line is a wonderful style scotch. I really think the scotch is best had with a fruit dessert or after a roast lamb dinner. Not my favorite, however a decent scotch for an everyday drinking type of dram.
