  2. Allandale scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Warm and long. Soft and curvaceous  body.
    • Nose
      Nutty. Dry. Some faint peat notes. Sea air?
    • Taste
      Voluptuous. Long, sustained development of barley-sugar sweetness, almost  overpowers the distillery character.
    • Finish
      Liquorice . Roots. Late,restrained saltiness.

  4. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A pleasant and pleasing Glenmorangie. Nice to drink but not more. The light spirits disturb the enjoyment of something, yet a solid malt.
    • Nose
      Sweetness, honey, highland spiciness, sherry, subtle subtle pepper, oranges, nuts, dried apricot, orange juice, caramel, peach, lemonade, raisin, light and pleasant, as used by Glenmorangie, subtle coffee notes, even some oak remains in the memory, the sherry influence is clearly noticeable. The alcohol bizzelt despite only 43% but something fresh in the nose. The second nose is sweet and tasty
    • Taste
      sweet caramel, slightly sprittig, some pepper, toffee, oranges, peach, vanilla, milk chocolate, increasingly sweet, sherry, raisins, nuts
    • Finish
      mild and creamy, only minimal oak, subtle chocolate aroma, sherry, orange, slightly short finish with hints of herbs and gingerale

    A wonderful old-school whisky from the early days of my "whisky career". Subtle and fruity makes this Glenmorangie appetite for more. I like it very much!
    • Nose
      Sweet vanilla and wonderfully subtle sherry aroma pour out of the glass. Caramel and nuts mingle and are received by a fruity peach aroma. Fine spice permeates a subtle hint of chocolate, tangerines and oranges are revealed. Although the 43% alcohol content is harmoniously integrated into the fruity nose, it is always slightly sprightly evident. The chocolate becomes more intense.
    • Taste
      Spicy wood and sweet caramel are noticeable immediately after the first sip, fruity elements end in a sweet creamy mixture. The spicy wood quickly transforms into fine wood and exudes a subtle bitter wood note. A fruity nut aroma follows the harsh wood elements, slightly sharpness and a hint of pepper arises.
    • Finish
      Spicy and slightly dry, the finish starts. Dry, old wood and old walnuts are added, tart wood notes are slightly sweet and fruity. Relatively fast, the finish sounds and leaves a very pleasant aroma.

  8. vojt466 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Surprisingly a lot of salty and dry whisky, after the 2nd tasting, I am increasing the score.
    • Nose
      Tones of grapes, blackberries, flowers, oak. Take a little salt from the beginning. Very spicy spice. The smell is so decent, thin, but interesting
    • Taste
      In taste honey, malt, vanilla, citrus and spices, and quite a bit of salt
    • Finish
      In dry reverberation, malt, vanilla, a little citrus, grapes and spices
