  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.

      Nose & Mouth 4/5
      Final 3/5

      Whisky n ° 2066

    A touch of alcohol? Aromatic, tropical but also with pear and vanilla, some fresh oak, eggnog cream cake!
    Overall pleasant and encouraging to try.

    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 a slightly more fruity note.

    With delicately tart oak tones in a long, sweet and soft aftertaste.

  5. 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.

    An interesting malt filled with delicious flavors,
    but somehow doesn't come together in a round whole.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Floral. Honey, vanilla, citruses, bounty, fruits and caramel.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Pepper, raisin, oak, malt, citruses, rum nut, banana shake and orange peel.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length, spicy.

  9. Kaleva scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nice whisky with 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, 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 ...
