    • Nose
      Beautiful volume. Light and fragrant. Toasted notes. Jam of red fruits. A little coffee. The toffee wakes up. Simple and pleasant.
    • Taste
      Easy and pleasant. Consistent with the announcement of the nose. Pretty spicy. Noticeable reduction, but it passes.
    • Finish
      Sweet spices. Elegance and persistence.

      Enthusiasm 3/5

    I have always had a soft spot for Glenmorangie and they pioneered the finishing technique so I expected more. This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger.

      When I opened the sample bottle and pour it into the glass, I always have a smell of the bottle before the glass and in this case there was very little which I found a little worrying. Anyway onto the nosing glass and yes it's better but not much better. Light chocolate and light red fruits. What is in there is faint and you really have to drag it out. Strawberries icecream or yogurt. An old woman's cheap perfume or air freshener.

      The taste is better, not great but okay. Again I get those fruit sherry flavours but they taste a bit artificial, almost like an additive. Judging by the burn it tastes a lot stronger than 43%. Not a lot going for it really.

      The finish is short. In fact it's so short you almost miss it. Slight bitterness on the death.

  8. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Jo, that's neat, I like even better the Lasanta (from memory). With 60-70 € / l also priced in the green area.
    • Nose
      a little hot, but rather pleasant, cinnamon-spicy, brown sugar, slightly burnt, leather; for 43% of the comes pretty intense and tight over and also tolerates a drop of water and then lays again is beautifully fruity, canned peach, orange marmalade, with raisins and cocoa
    • Taste
      fits (see Nose), plus some walnut and black pepper, also here full and strong, even with water ... he also a bit earthy-dirty, sympathetic
    • Finish
      medium long, spicy-warm, some burnt sugar, dark chocolate, walnut

    Drinkable but a bit too much of that leather couch for my taste
    • Nose
      Clean sherry notes, hints of pencil shavings and rubber and whiffs of leather, yellow fruits
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, leather couch, peaches, quinces, subtle sweetness
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm
