    Body: Medium. Very firm. Rounded.
    • Nose
      Very distinctive, clean, oaky peattiness. This character is in the background throughout.
    • Taste
      Flowery. Fudgey. Toffeeish. Nutty. Very soft, restrained spiciness. Then toasty and peaty.
    • Finish
      Firm, clean, pettiness. Then long, very soft, spicy and remarkably  warming.

    A beautifully packaged Glenmorangie. This was made

    with the single malt distilled using barley from the original floor maltings at

    Glenmorangie, which have since been closed. A limited edition of 2,000 bottles.

    • Nose
      The nose is quite light and fresh with dry hay notes and beeswax.
      A fruit salad note with balanced acidity and smoked ham.
    • Taste
      The palate is full and quite sweet. There is a creaminess to the cereal notes with lightly salted butter on toast, a little tiramisu and winter berries. A good malt extract note with soft esters.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and full of malted barley notes.

  5. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "A special edition of Glenmorangie, bottled in 1999 ready for the

    millenium. It`s a combination of several casks laid down in 1974 with a

    total outturn of just 2000 50cl bottles - a rare collector`s piece,

    complete with wooden display case."
