  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • 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.

      Enthusiasm:
      Nose & Mouth 4/5
      Final 3/5

      Whisky n ° 2066

    Geil used to be said to be very sweet food. In this sense, a really cool whisky. Dangerously tasty!
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      Immediately a beautiful round, caramel sweetness, cotton candy, Old Scool Lolly, citrus, and a beautiful, light oak note. Delicious!
    • Finish
      rather short to medium. Sweet without end, light fruit, honey.

  4. Mannix65 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Label and packaging design perfectly matches the character of the whisky - candy at the fair, easy to drink, easy to drink and short lived
    • Nose
      Sweet caramelized sugar, herbal tea, toffee, cotton candy, raspberry syrup, over time some ripe yellow plums, honey, in the background a hint of white pepper
    • Taste
      Red Campinobonbons, gummy bears, very sweet, strawberry yoghurt chocolate, butter biscuits
    • Finish
      Rather short, creamy and soft

  6. JohannesB scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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.

  7. EvilAFI scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This reminds me of a apple cinnamon potpourri, a good pour, but a tad tart and sugary sweet
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet, icing sugar and barley. White wine influence in a tangy Chardonnay esq way.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Tart, sweetness is balanced with oak and a tart apple pear note, baking spice
    • Finish
      84 84
      Dry and a mix of sugar sweetness and apple spice.

    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.
