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 ...
