  1. wuenne scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Had it in my closet for a long time and was very curious what to expect. All in all, a very drinkable and quite tasty dram that is just plain fun.
    • Nose
      sweet, especially caramel sweetness with hints of red fruits
    • Taste
      quite strong attack on the tongue with a nice sweetness;
      light roasted aromas join in;
      spreads out nicely in the mouth - mouth-filling;
      slight alcoholic pungency (not unpleasant), which disappears with a little water; becomes somewhat rounder and finer overall, and vanilla aromas are also noticeable
    • Finish
      medium long, but still has a nice aftertaste;
      especially caramel and roasted aromas linger pleasantly

    Nose: Bananas, cinnamon, marzipan, vanilla
    Taste: Very shallow flavor. Sheet music buried in the back. On subsequent approaches, you can feel very fuzzy notes of fruits such as peaches, apricots, bananas and vanilla
    Rating: 85 | 100 - Medium long finish with a slight fruit aftertaste. If the flavor notes of this whisky were more expressive, it would be much better.

  9. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    To be honest, it doesn't knock me off my feet if there is nothing unpleasant to be found
    • Nose
      Sugar-sweet, slightly caramelized, towards candy, in addition very floral, also almonds, fresh on the nose, clears the nose a bit, has a bit of a scented candle, slightly sour
    • Taste
      rather restrained in the mouth, not that sweet at all, also tart, orange, woody, tingling, a little dark chocolate in the beginning, a bit thin
    • Finish
      here comes freshness, slightly sticky, here then candy cane, mandarins, slightly coated mouth

    This reminds me of a apple cinnamon potpourri, a good pour, but a tad tart and sugary sweet

      Sweet, icing sugar and barley. White wine influence in a tangy Chardonnay esq way.

    Facts:
    Highland Single Malt, NAS (no indication of age), 46% vol., Matured in ex-bourbon barrels and finish in heavily burned-out Portuguese red wine barrels, not cool-filtered, colored with caramel, the Milsean is the seventh bottling of the limited private edition by Glenmorangie •

    Nose:
    A sweet size that reminds me of sweets. Cotton candy and candied fruit come to mind. Coconut and banana follow. You can still hear some ginger spiciness and oak spice.

    Taste:
    The Glenmorangie Milsean is also sweet in the mouth, but also shows a slightly woody side. Fruit comes through again with coconut and bananas as well as cherry and juicy tangerine. The single malt is full-bodied with a slight pepper note at the end.

    Outlet:
    Warm, persistent finish with chocolate and spices.

  16. keizerjos scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Sweet sweet scent, vanilla, taste with the well-known orange peel. Bitter, dry, beautifully firm against the very fruity-sweet profile. Matured in retoasted ex wine casks, I don't get rid of the tartness of tanine from red wine.
    I can get used to that toasting. It gives a crispy and recognizable taste to the whisky and the taste of the original barrel, wine, comes beautifully. This is pleasant, clear, recognizable and multi-dimensional whisky.

  18. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Alcoholic? Aromatic, tropical but also with pear and vanilla, a little fresh oak, eggnog cream cake!
    Overall pleasant and encouraging to try.

    Taste:
    Slightly hot and tingling, a bit spicy but also fruity and aromatic, sweet, a little oak ensures the right balance.

    * a few drops of water bring an even more fruity note.

    With delicate tart oak tones in a long, sweetish and soft finish.

    • Nose
      Sweet, but dynamic, with beautiful cereal notes. Yogurt with creamy fruit (which dissipates a little), vanilla.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity, accompanied by cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Ultra sweet, the sweet side present in the mouth here becomes almost sickening.

  21. Defeatless scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    It is not a bad whisky at all. Yet it is a modern whisky, a friend of everybody. And it feels a bit doctored.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet, sweet popcorn, malt, hint of marmelade and a bit of sweet orange. It's one of these fruit sweet notes which I cannot pinpoint clearly.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Little thin arrival. Then sweets, marmelade, bitter oranges, quite delicate caramel and some cream.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium length. A tad bitter, but overall sweet and mellow. Not really complex but nice bourbon influences keep lingering in the background.

  25. Kaleva scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nice whisky with a very delicate sweet nose. A lot of different candies in the nose, palate and aftertaste. Nicely balanced single malt with very good overall impression, which doesn't feel young but still is not very complex. Surprisingly not that expensive for a Private Edition expression, which was released 3 years ago. Still can be found at some shops.
    • Nose
      Floral, acacia honey, fruit lollipops, marshmallow, dried apricots, light creaminess, marmalade, vanilla, cinnamon, orange zest, water opens lemon and malty notes
    • Taste
      Sweet, a bit peppery, nougat, raisins, malt, slightly oaky with light bitterness
    • Finish
      Short, getting dry quite soon, citrus zest, pear

    Comparison of Glenmorangie Milsean with older Glenmorangie 15yo bottling. (Evaluated based on sample.)

    Already at first good Milsean looks after the smell like Glenmorangie 15yo went to the beauty salon. Milsean is fragrant and sweet to woe. Apparently, the once-tanned wine barrels have done more of their work than well, but I am no longer sure enough to benefit. Especially after adding a few drops of water, the fragrance intensity is fragrant - and terribly unpleasant. This is how I imagine "french whore perfume" associated with the Bowmore distillery in certain years of production.

    And the omnipresent sweetness dominates on the palate, but with a strange bitterness. Yes, the sweet wine that got out of the way.

    When I overcome it, it's almost like I was drinking whisky from a completely different distillery. And I have to say that the brighter and more honest 15yo enjoy me much more than the artificial and pseudo-sweet Milsean.

    PS: After about an hour in the glass, Milsean starts to smell more pleasant, less intense, even nutty - and moreover, closer to Glenmorangie 15yo. It was as if the mask of wine had finally fallen from it. However, Glenmorangie 15yo still smells and tastes noticeably better. And unfortunately, Milsean still tastes ugly ...

  29. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty - sweetness, spiciness, fruitiness - everything goes well together, pretty tasty, enough strength. But for € 90, that's too much for me to enjoy. NAS, dilute ... nene, leave it. And the fantasy prices over it certainly not.
    • Nose
      Honey, brown sugar, banana chips, a hint of lightly burnt coconut macaroon, pleasantly sweet, with strong sniffing it also has a certain sweetish-woody sharpness
    • Taste
      Yep, fits the nose, beautifully burnt-sweet-woody, in the onset a little pepper, but "sucking away" well, not too bitter, then again coconut macaroon, banana chips, in addition to drinking cocoa ... he bleaches long in the mouth, I still think fruity, towards orange peel / blood orange, evt, cherry jelly ... nice full-bodied and strong for 46%
    • Finish
      medium to long, sweet, milk chocolate / cocoa, gentle spiciness, then warm and dry

  30. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Dr. Bill at Glenmorangie has once again made something totally different and very original. An interesting creation, not an instant classic but something which will is worth trying. 
    • Nose
      Candy house - fluffy cotton candy, sugar sprinkles on sweets from an old confectionery shop. Burnt wood notes start to appear along with some peppermint. 
    • Taste
      Sweet on delivery, lots of sugary sweetness followed by a powerful explosion of oak spice. Peppery, fiery and packed with oak and prickles.
    • Finish
      short to medium, still with the peppery notes and a hint of sugar.

    Quite drinkable, but just a bit weak-breasted, the individual fruits are mostly not too strong, wobbles so to himself.
    • Nose
      Very tasty, has something of a basket full of sweets, creamy candies, apricot, peach, vanilla, caramel, honey, candy cane, marshmallows, honeydew melon, a little green apple, some banana also, in between sweet white oak, light malt, but only in hints
    • Taste
      Full honeydew melon, shallow lemon ice, green apple with shell, cotton candy, white sugar, light honey, vanilla, unripe apricot, unripe banana, white grapes, light malt, pleasant, but a little bit lax
    • Finish
      Typical bourbon cask finish, bright fruits of all kinds, white peach, green apple, honey, young, bitter oak chips, medium-long, dry-sweet

  41. dRambo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nose: starts with a voluminous creamy nose, sweet apples, honey, vanilla, ripe bright grapes that appear sweet at first, then increasingly fruity and always sour and woody, reminding me of Sauternes maturations, now and then a little malt flashes, then again delicate wood flavors from the Bourbon barrel, alternating with fresh fruity tart notes, peppermint tea with apple juice, Juicy Fruit, may sound. something strange but complex and delicious
    Taste: Tart pleasantly bitter wood, very smooth, oily almost creamy, it carries vanilla through the mouth, less sweet than the nose suggest, behind the dry oak hides complex acidity that comes from both the wine and the wood, with the second Sip and a little air in the mouth are bright fruits with toffee, the finish is medium fruity and runs in dominant very dry slightly bitter wood.
    Conclusion: I like the nose best, for me it would benefit in the taste of a little more "sweet and sour" in contrast to the wood. So he is personally too woody for me and for a large bottle too priced ambitious for the performance

    N: More similarities to Green Spot with a little rubber, putty and candy.
    T: Starts sweet before developing more on a savoury>sour putty trail.
    F: Much mash, oaky mash with an all too familiar bourbon vanilla finish.
    C: A honey-less Glenmorangie [indicative of the 10yo] that concentrates more on a woody-grainy bourbon mash. I find it rather good if a little plain.

    candy floss, not as sweet as suggested by nosing, quite a bit of berry

      Like right away, yummy yellow fruit bomb with the Glenmorangie flower. In fact, sweet, but not overdone. He already smells nice! How should that be on the palate? More concrete: mead, syrupy sweetness, slightly spicy oak. Not very complex but round and appetizing.

    There was a certain cloying sweetness to this that I didn’t like, and that aside it felt a little unbalanced and a tad one-dimensional. This generated a lot of hype and carried a hefty price tag, so that’s disappointing.Tasted at a Malt Mongers Israel Evening and Reviewed in my blog: https://iwriteaboutstuffilike.com/2016/06/18/malt-mongers-israel-red-wine-finish-night/

    This is a restrained, even shy but very sophisticated dram and needs a
    significant amount of time to develop its full aroma. Smooth, sweet and
    lovely balanced with yellow summer fruits and delicate oak spice. Feels
    a bit young lacking some complexity, but the candy taste sensation
    they've planned to evoke is always present. This charming malt brings
    back my childhood memories when entering this lovely sweetshop in our
    village. Well done Dr. Lumsden!

    I thank the Whiskyhort for the sample!

      herbal notes (thyme) and oak in the back.
    • Taste
      Full and rich on the palate. Sweet and fruity with butterscotch,
      custard, cookies, candies and lovely apricots. This is complemented by
      significantly warming spice - oak, ginger, pepper, and a whiff of
      cinnamon. Honey and creamy vanilla nicely intermingle with subtle herbal
      notes and roasted almonds towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, slightly sweet and warm with tender dry oak,
      ginger and honey, lovely mixed with hints of rose petals on the tail.

      WITH WATER: With a few drops of water the fruitiness slightly turns
      into candied fruit with vanilla, subtle roasted almonds and caramel
      notes. Lively and vibrant on the palate with ripe yellow fruit, apricots
      and peaches, and a significantly tamed warmth due to the reduced
      spiciness of oak and ginger. The finish is medium long and dry with oak,
      acacia honey and lingering notes of rose petals.

    Too sweet in my opinion.

    • Nose
      Extremely sweet and fruity, almost like perfumed.
    • Taste
      Rich oily texture, a lot of sweetness like candy, a hint of spices like chilli or red-pepper folowed by sweet fruits like mellow peaches and melons.
    • Finish
      Long with dominant sweetness and some spices in the background.

    Not overly complex but absolutely to the point as far as the concept of this bottling is concerned. You really feel reminded of a sweet shop with the big sweetness, sometimes the sweetness even seems almost overdone. The toasting of the wine barrels has tamed the often so noticeable tannins extremely and produced a sweetness unknown to me until now. I like, but can not quite tie in with the quality and variety of the first bottlings from the Private Edition. For lovers of soft, sweet and complacent whiskys a revelation. Who appreciates edge and heavy aromas, is otherwise better advised.
    • Nose
      Burnt almonds, fruit bread, classic vanilla and caramel flavors and some cotton candy. More does not want to rise from the glass at the beginning, the whisky is quite restrained. With time and hand warmth you will find coconut, cinnamon and fruit gum. In the background are delicate herb and oak tones, which keep the sweetness in check.
    • Taste
      For Glenmorangie typically soft and very round in the mouth. Very sweet with sugared almonds, custard, sweet biscuits (subway cookies!), Cotton candy and all sorts of mixed jelly beans. The alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Finish
      Medium long and creamy sweet at first with cream caramel and cooked fruits. Reminiscent of velvety strawberry jam with additional sugar content. Towards the end, there is a bittersweet note of fine espresso and some wood.

     Does the Milsean bring the Privat Edition back to its former glory?

    The nose provides a great potpourri, in taste it looks mostly flat and unbalanced - 14.02.2016
    • Nose
      The sweetness starts immediately, very sweet, sugar, wine gum, a little vanilla, caramel, sweet fruit, date, fig, raspberry
    • Taste
      Sweetness, a little vanilla, butter biscuits, fruity, light grapes, pear, a bit bitter, there is not much left of the nose here
    • Finish
      medium

    Neat in the nose, not so tasty in my taste. He has a little something of everything, but in the whole nothing, so I would have to pour myself over and over again - certainly not at the price.
    • Nose
      At first, the ex-bourbon barrels dominate, honey and some vanilla are superficial. With some time in the glass, add Ricola herb drops and some pineapple like green apples.
      Overall, very sweet, light herbs in the background. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Mild on the tongue, then an undefinable jumble of green fruits, a little vanilla, stale wine, spicy oak, a bit of shortbread. That sounds good, maybe it is. Personally, this rage of flavors in its entirety does not really go along. Sweet at first, then spicy, but not really strong.
    • Finish
      Some honey is there before the light spice peels into the foreground and determines the finish. The 46% Vol. Fit quite well.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Glenmorangie ‘Milsean’ (46%, OB, +/-2016)  A nice retro packaging that reminds me of an old circus, perhaps (check Compass Box’ next bottling in that respect!) Or an old ice-cream truck, remember? This baby was matured in bourbon wood, then finished in re-toasted wine casks. Why not! Colour: gold. Nose: the antithesis of the old 10. When that one was saying ‘rocks’, this one says ‘candy floss’. Indeed, candy floss, and marshmallows, jelly babies, the expected vanilla, touches of coconut, and then drops of light rum and nail polish. I don’t know why, I cannot not think of Auchentoshan. Mouth: we’re going towards bourbon, or even pure corn whisky. That’s funny indeed. Sweet maize, coconut, vanilla, sultanas, plenty of sweet oak (not tannic as such), and a feeling of cassata ice-cream. From the aforementioned ice-cream truck, of course. Ends up with more pears, which suggests youth. Finish: rather short, clean, and always on sweets and jellies. Some might say this is a sexist remark, but I find it a little girly. Comments: some light bourbon from Scotland – a Scottish obsession these days, it seems. Drinks very well, for sure. SGP:741 - 81 points.

    All in all, a very successful NAS where I would even be willing to pay € 90 for ...
    • Nose
      Very sweet and he actually reminds me of sweets store where we were always so happy as a child ... coconut nut and toffee. He also comes out of the glass fruity, but can not properly describe which fruit ... raspberry?
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is quite spicy with gummy bears and fruits ... Actually, here comes the raspberry. He has many sweet, but also harsh sides ...
    • Finish
      Long, the raspberry dominates, a light spice is still there and he warms throat.

  75. XorLophaX scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion: 90/100 points - "sweet, sweet candy". Although this Glenmorangie reflects the general "mass compatibility" of a typical, edgeless Glenmorangie and is accordingly not very complex, but with its overwhelming fruitiness and sweetness it is something special. Attention: dangerously tasty! Link to the tasting on my blog: http://www.tasting-notes.de/Archive/401
    • Nose
      very fruity, sweet wine gum, exotic fruit basket in a class of its own
    • Taste
      On the palate, the whisky is also very fruity-sweet. Notes of mango, honey, a bit malty, vanilla and slightly overripe fruits. Ee is not very complex but extremely fruity and tasty. In the end, a lot of pear.
    • Finish
      long, fruity finish dominated by ripe Williams pears

  76. Segens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Quite a special Glenmorangie which cannot compete with Companta which was my hope but is nevertheless another good whisky in the Private Collection series. For me personally it was worth a try as I have not had such a "candy" whisky before. Nevertheless I am hoping that after Tusail and this one there will be a whisky that is going back to the 90 points barrier :-)
    • Nose
      Incredible candy sweetness in the nose. I also get some fruity notes like raspberry, apple and pears, The alcohol could have been implemented better..
    • Taste
      Again candy sweetness and the raspberry is very dominant. Quite a special whisky I have to admit!
    • Finish
      The finish is nothing special. You still have some sweetness and fruits but also some few bitterness (probably due to the young age)
