    Easy drinking ... Otherwise I can not describe this Glenmorangie. Acidic fruit flavors, tart wood and walnut aromas make me simply "scavenge" this Nectar d'Òr. Not particularly, but a good all-day dram.
    • Nose
      Dark orange flavors blend with roasted aromas and almonds immediately. Intense honey and malty sweetness mix, a touch of vanilla is added. A subtly sourish grainy note pervades the creamy sweetness, the sour flavor becomes more intense and gives the aroma of Glenmorangie a special touch. An indefinable spice note rises from the sourish fruit, fresh and clear exudes the Glenmorangie his idiosyncratic aroma. Citrus fruits are discreetly in the background.
    • Taste
      Spicy fruit and wood aromas dominate the first sip. The sour aroma of the nose is reflected in the taste again, dry and tart wood elements mix with the fruity note. A multi-layered spice mixture (nutmeg is definitely there) gives the fruity apricot and peaches a peculiar aroma which I do not feel negative or disturbing. Butter and walnuts are mixed together, tart wood aroma comes to the fore, while sour grapes are over the entire aroma.
    • Finish
      The harsh wooden sharpness sticks at the beginning of the departure for a long time between the tongue and the palate. Slowly, these sour flavors are added, honey and fruity apricots are also in the finish to advantage. Slowly a bitter walnut aroma is created. With this harsh walnut aroma and tart grapes in the background, the finish gradually fades away.

      the finish is long, sweet, honeyed with a berry flavor, a piece of wood

  4. Don Cassi scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    At first very fine, mild and cautious on the nose with sweet white wine aromas. After standing for a while, citrus notes and associations of apple and peach rings, followed by some caramel.

    Very soft in the mouth at first, then the alcohol unfolds and causes pimples on the tip of the tongue. The taste is sweet and spicy.

    In the finish, initially sweet and vinous again, then dark chocolate and a little oak.

    Great, multi-faceted 12 year old and the best of the line.
