    An unusual Glenmorangie. Actually, a tasty Easy Drinking Dram if not this subtle sulfur note somehow dominant and slightly disturbing in the background would be. This malt is fruity with very spicy wood and a slightly salty note. Unusual and yet somehow delicious ...
    • Nose
      Clear and radiant amber Glenmorangie shines in the glass. A plethora of long streaks runs leisurely down the glass wall, dried fruits and berries pour out of the glass. Full-bodied apricot and orange aroma mixes, a subtle hint of sulfur lies in the background. Dark caramel and a dash of malt and grain are added, floral notes and a slightly grassy impact make the Glenmorangie appear fresh. A pinch of salt, a touch of leather merges into a sulfurous note, again grassy and flowery, then raisins and peach again. The nose is complex and releases a wide variety of flavors.
    • Taste
      Spicy wood with a fruity twist makes the first sip pleasant to remember. The dried berries return again, the subtle note of sulfur (unfortunately) as well. A pinch of salt is distributed over spicy wood elements, the second sip flows creamy and slightly sharp over the tongue, a pinch of pepper makes the palate glow and exudes a bitter aroma. Dark caramel comes to the fore, fruity berries mingle with bitter wood. Nutty the Taghta goes into the finish.
    • Finish
      Herb and yet fruity, the Glenmorangie rests on the tongue. Dark and old walnut aroma mixes with dried raisins, above all lies this subtle note of sulfur and spreads a tart and slightly meringue aroma in the mouth. For a long time, these aromas resonate and are pleasantly remembered.

    I really enjoyed this one.Unfortunately, i came late to the party and the prices have gone up too much to justify buying a bottle.

    Better than the Dornoch, the spicy Manzanilla comes mainly in the finish and the nose.

    • Taste
      Creamy and spicy. Oak, caramel, citruses, peach ice tea and ginger.
    • Finish
      Medium length, bittersweet, spicy.

    [September, 2016]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.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.  I
    took no detailed notes as this whisky did not interest me.
