Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Quarter Century

28 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.85 points

  1. Snerik scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Loads of dried and fresh fruits; peaches, apples, pears, oranges. Red roses, cacao powder, pickled ginger. Really amazing.
    • Taste
      It sweet and sour (the ginger note really works well here). It's spicy and very fruity at the same time. Like that Indian dessert..?
    • Finish
      Long, gorgeous, smooth. More fruit again, and less cacao and ginger.

  2. ctu scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Not a price / value champion, but 43% is not thin, sophisticated and well matured whisky.
    • Nose
      Usual Glenmorangie florality. Mixed fruit basket, milk chocolate, honey and sherry.
    • Taste
      Sophisticated. Black currant, phosphorous sherry, tobacco and milk chocolate. Raspberry jam and prune. Touch of pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium length, fruity, oaky and spicy.

  3. Koning scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A deep nose and a soft palate, with a dissapointing finish. Compared with the fruity 18 years sherry dominates the 25 years old. It is quite good, but I enjoyed the considerably more affordable 18 years as much.
    • Nose
      Clean laundry (a note I find typical for Glenmorangie,than heavy sherried notes like raisins, bramble, milk chocolate and coffee. I smell gooseberries and liquorice too.
    • Taste
      Velvety soft and creamy with raspberries, blackcurrant and milk chocolate. Also notes of sherry, balsamico and tobacco.
    • Finish
      A bit thin and astringent. Liquorice, vanilla, vague yellow fruits, a bit spicy and a whiff of tobacco.

  5. Goethe scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Quite a pleasant and lovely Glenmorangie, like the 18y old: Quite easy to enjoy. In the long term not very convincing for 25 years.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 5/10
    • Nose
      Gentle Oloroso, sweet fruits (like apples and pears), floral and honey, milk chocolate. 
    • Taste
      Sherry, herbs, plums, some Marsala and honey.
    • Finish
      Medium. Fruits and chocolate.

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    N-
    Rounded nature, sweet malt develop into honey and citrus peel, followed
    by star anise and soft spices arises. Caramelised banana, milky vanilla
    sauce. Elegant wood that sooth the senses, but somehow too gentle for
    my personal preference.

    P- Crisp, fresh and rounded as derived
    on nose. Whiff of refreshing sour fruits, lime-y. Light oily texture
    with gentle spiciness.

    F- Medium-long, subtly coat of wax, creamy ripe citrus fruits.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  8. Thermidor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I'm usually not fond of Glenmorangie but this one won me over. Not worth €300 though. Not by a long shot.
    • Nose
      A fine one but a bit shy. Fruitiness: tinned peaches and then something richer, sweeter. Slight turfiness. No smoke.
    • Taste
      Body is light or medium. A little too watery. Slick body with some particulates. A bit of creaminess, and a tannic bite on the gums. Honey, red apple, marmalade. The taste is very even and contains no surprise turns.
    • Finish
      Comparable to HP25 2012: both have this slowly fading finish that isn't entirely perfect because although the aromas are well balanced, it's the kind of whisky you want to be drinking only on good palate days because it might not feel lasting enough to leave a proper impression when you aren't at your best.

  9. JohannesB scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Complex, elegant, pleasing and wonderfully fruity. Especially the dynamic nose, which offers everything from fresh sour fruits to fully oxidized dried fruits, inspires. The truly best Glenmorangie that I have been able to try so far. If this whisky is missing something, it's rough edges. But does everyone have to have a malt? I think: no.
    • Nose
      Buttery and very sweet with lots of honey. The fruitiness changes every minute in the glass, very complex! First strawberry, mango and vanilla milkshake. Then dried fruits, especially apricot. This is followed by fresh, sour fruits. Kiwi, pineapple, gooseberry. Above all enthroned a fine Nussigkeit. Here you can spend hours discovering new things.
    • Taste
      Soft and creamy, the alcohol is by no means felt. The taste is now driven by dried apricots, pineapple, dates and slightly sour wine notes. A fine woody note comes up and a restrained, tender bitter spice, like a strong coffee, which was tamed with milk.
    • Finish
      Long and pleasant, with melting caramel, hazelnuts in chocolate and all kinds of dried fruits. The for 25 years very discreet seasoning from the barrels always brings some coffee and very subtle bitterness, but always remains elegant.
