  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fudge, toffee. Initially very greedy, it softens, becomes hollow and diluted.
    • Taste
      Juicy, typical profile of a bourbon cask, quite greedy too, he suffers from the same problem of lack of volume as the nose and is really too diluted.
    • Finish
      Light spices, delicately scented.

      A whisky that lacks scale, too flat.

      Nose & Mouth 2/5
      Final 3/5

    Easy to drink, accessible whisky. In the body it starts pretty full but suddenly collapses a little, haven't experienced that very often.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Fruity, tropical fruits, peach, pineapple. Surprisingly pickering alcohol for such a low Abv. Overripe banana. Later on softer and more attractive, vanilla.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Some pepper, sweet, pretty full body, peach. Later on smoother and unfortunately more pale as well. Suddenly pretty watery. Tropical fruits, vanilla.
    • Finish
      83 83
      A little pepper now, sweet, peach, orange, honey. Not very long, a bit candy-like, 'schuimblokken'.

    Good NAS Highland Single Malt - in the liter bottle for less than 60,00 € = ok!
    • Nose
      Bourbon flavors (caramel, vanilla), sweet pears, honey;
    • Taste
      a soft, very fruity tart, juicy pears, peaches, malt, sweetness, caramel;
    • Finish
      medium-length, warm finish, with beautiful spicy finish (oak, ginger);

  4. Kaleva scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant NAS. Typical Glenmorangie, somewhat young but with good overall balance. A good purchase in Duty-free shops.
    • Nose
      Fruity, butterscotch, pear, honey notes after adding water
    • Taste
      Sweet, vanilla, honey, spices, touch of coconut
    • Finish
      Medium-long, warm, orange zest

  5. Syleo scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    That's what an ex-bourbon and virgin oak maturation must be for me. The combination of the toffee-vanilla fudge notes from the ex-bourbon and the particularly fruity-floral aromas of the Virgin Oaks works perfectly well for me in this combination. NAS or not, the Tarlogan is made in my opinion excellent craftsmanship and a regular in my home bar.
    • Nose
      89 89
      After pouring the polished gold floats immediately a sweet cloud of pear and apple juice through the room. Fresh, sour apples meet ripe, yellow pears, nectarines and a slice of lime. And constantly present vanilla fudge and shortbread dipped in forest honey. At the same time the bouquet is almost overwhelmingly flowery, violets, roses, lavender and orchids evoke memories of red Haribo raspberries or fondant. Other associations line up, a glass of moderate red wine with pecan nuts, nutmeg, rosemary and coffee beans tickle something in the nose. At most, the slightly perfumed and tingling touch leads to slight deductions in the B-note of an otherwise excellent nose.
    • Taste
      91 91
      The aromas in the smell presented anything but boring, the taste is still surprisingly distinctive and by no means as perfumed sweet as expected. Silky soft he fills the mouth, but at the same time flowery-fresh and again slightly tingling. Toffee fudge and honey on malted brown bread, pear compote and pineapple, balanced by a light woody bitterness of almonds.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The finish again emphasizes the sweetness, light chocolate, shortbread and malt sugar, softened by almond skins and a hint of woody notes, as if one had just sucked on a colorful candy cane.

    • Nose
      92 92
      Honey and herbs with light roasted aromas. After a while, red fruits are added to vanilla with caramel.
      Great nose
    • Taste
      88 88
      Nice sweet with a little bit of bitterness.
      Caramel with citrus fruits.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Mild with a very mild spice. Medium to long and it comes a chocolate sweet

    Jim Murray has awarded 95 points to the Tarlogan. "As refreshing as an early morning dip in a Scottish pond..."

  9. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Bottler's notes: "Aroma: Sweet, earthy notes of cream caramel, classic Glenmorangie vanilla and coconut and malt biscuits.
    Taste: Soft, silky mouthfeel with dessert notes such as vanilla custard and pears. Delicious pineapple and citrus notes.
    A hint of exquisite ginger followed by long-lasting, recurring notes of white chocolate and almond marzipan. "
    Yeah, sure. I really tried, but the description is a fairy tale. And for people who are just fans of typical 1st-fill bourbon and virgin oak whiskys, that's nothing. And from treats such as Traditional 100 °, Cellar 13 or Astar from your own home far away.
    • Nose
      Vanillekipferl, coconut, shortbread, but rather gentle and cozy, not as intense-crisp, as I know it from some other good 1st-fill-bourbon and virgin-oak whiskys, this clearly green apple and pear - I do not know yet , if I find that good - I did not expect it, it whispers something "I'm very young!"
    • Taste
      Mouthfeel first nice and oily, then gets quite spicy, some green apple is back, but rather Hubba-Bubba-artificially, to bitterness, with goodwill one could say cocoa, but just before-just-bitter ... nothing vanilla, nothing Coconut, nothing pastry
    • Finish
      short bitter medicine, then warm and spicy, in the end there is some cocoa
