- A medium body.
Toffeeish, very satisfying, with walnut,then big development of spices. lemon grass and pronounced peat.
- Glenmorangie 21 yo '150th Anniversary' (43% OB, white ceramic, +/-1993)
A rather famous bottling commemorating the distillery’s
sesquicentennial anniversary. Glenmorangie was founded in 1843. Colour:
full gold. Nose: the strength is lower, but this has more oomph than the
18, although the styles are very similar. It’s also more complex,
summery, fruity, lightly honeyed, with many stewed and fresh fruits plus
whiffs of crushed dill and coriander. Then oriental pastries, maybe
touches of caraway seeds, more coriander, mead, hints of cigarette
tobacco, a little mustiness (in a great way)… All in all, the freshness
is quite impressive here. Mouth: once again, this is much, much bigger
than the newer 18. Creamier and spicier in any case, although the
general profile is all on juicy ripe fruits again. Apricot liqueur,
touches of mint lozenges, bananas flambéed, liquorice, honeydew… And a
much bigger saltiness than in the 18. Pretty impressive! Finish: long,
with more bitterness, burnt herbs, liquorice… Really big for a
Glenmorangie at 43% Comments: really a big Glenmorangie (yup I insist),
even unusually roughish at times. Loses one or two points at the
bitterish finish but otherwise, it’s brilliant whisky. SGP:562 - 89 points.
- A heavy fruity nose with sherried fruit.
Taste in the same signs as the nose, massive sherry fruits with raisins, dates and figs. In the background a pleasant influence of oak.
