  1. hs305 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2015]  Finally I emptied a bottle that I bought for 84 Euro in April, 2015.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 82,5.  My notes state a slightly bitter and unbalanced profile that I did not like.

    Pretty light in the nose, some light sherry, a bit of pepper, vanilla and honey. Acceptable dram, but not a wow-factor

  3. schengel10 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A soft, delicious and good Glenmorangie, in the liter bottle and at a reasonable price!
    • Nose
      soft, fruity, (pear, peach, berries), honey, vanilla;
    • Taste
      mild, soft onset, fruity, sherry aromas, caramel, toffee, increasingly spicy, peppery, slightly dry;
    • Finish
      medium length, fruity finish; slightly bitter in the finish, oak;

  4. Kaleva scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Not a bad Glenmorangie, much more tasty than 10 yo. Quite well balanced (but a bit on the oaky side) although feels somewhat young. Easy going and can be a good daily dram if the purchase price is around 50 euros.
    • Nose
      Fresh, sultanas, vanilla, red berries, oranges, some honey notes, cinnamon, a bit of dark chocolate
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet, fruity (apricots, yellow apples), spicy (peppers, ginger), black currant notes, burnt caramel, some bitterness
    • Finish
      Short, sweet, oaky and slightly bitter, walnut shells, notes of malt

  5. SimpleSample scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    In the taste very appealing, the nose could be better. But still nice whisky
    • Nose
      79 79
      In the first impression a bit weak or not immediately recognizable.
      Some wood a fruitiness with a touch of honey. Somehow, every now and then a note of sulfur comes through
      The second glass of apricot
    • Taste
      85 85
      Yes, now clearer sherry with a nice sweet (milk chocolate) paired with some black pepper and slight bitterness
    • Finish
      83 83
      Mouth filling with light spice ... medium long

  7. Falnor scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Nothing special or worth buying. It's drinkable, but there are way better choices.
    • Nose
      A light and young start. Grass and hay. Green banana and yellow apples . More caramels and milky chocolate paste later on.
    • Taste
      More sherried on the palate. Raisins and some plums. Toffee, cream and some chocolate.
    • Finish
      Just too light, short and boring.

    Pretty drinkable and convenient, I would say simple and easy
    • Nose
      Apples, xmas spice, cinnamon, dry hay, little lemony too
    • Taste
      Citrusy, lemony, subtle sweetness, a bit liquorice too
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm
