  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This is not a special whisky now, mild, fairly simple, something that I would offer to guests who can do nothing else with whisky that does not hurt anyone
    • Nose
      A relatively straightforward ex-bourbon nose, sweet, vanilla, malty, a little coconut, a little mint, relatively mild and pleasing, red apple, and also green apple with some acidity, very light oak influence, which brings some spice
    • Taste
      somewhat watery, creamy, sweet, thin, apple, vanilla, the sweetness dominates, now also slight acidity from the apple, minimally bitter, pleasant, but nothing more
      on the second sip it has a little more substance, but not really very much, now a little coconut
    • Finish
      a little salt, still quite sweet, honey, now a little oak, tart, the mouthfeel becomes drier, medium-long, I find the finish best

  3. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      81 81
      Sherry; Honey; Vanilla and caramel, after the first sip of citrus
    • Taste
      83 83
      weak spiciness, then light oak, which becomes more intense over time, then the sherry (dry fruit, minimal bittersweet note and a hint of tobacco) slowly shows
    • Finish
      83 83
      rather short, some caramel, oak, a little fruit and again sherry, again some citrus

  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Hay notes evoking the Lowlands. Pretty austere. Herbal notes more and more present. Really original for a Glenmorangie
    • Taste
      Spicy, the sherry is not very noticeable, it only rounds off the whole thing.
    • Finish
      Spicy with notes of coffee.

      Enthusiasm 3/5

  5. schengel10 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    A soft, mild, very neat highland malt; maybe a bit young and not cheap!
    • Nose
      fruity (peach, nectarine), some caramel, a lot of vanilla;
    • Taste
      pleasant sweet onset, citrus (peaches), nutty, spicy, vanilla, caramel, oily, round and harmonious;
    • Finish
      medium length finish; long fruity finish with vanilla;

  6. Falnor scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    This dram is just alright, tasted with a few others and it didn't stand out.

      Generally sweet, sugar, apples, vanilla, orange zest, oak and caramel.
    • Taste

      Vanilla, wood notes, less sweet than the nose, somewhat spicy and fresh.
    • Finish
