[April, 2017]  Another experiment from Glenmorangie and so far most of them were quite interesting and good (except the sulphur-spoiled Companta).

In a blind tasting I would not guess this is a whisky after the nosing, I would rather go for a sweet wine or sweet liqueur or the like.  The wine aromas completely dominate so the malt flavours hardly shine through.  How to rate this?  I score it high for a wine but rather low for a whisky...  Bold arrival in the mouth, again very sweet and winey.  Now the whisky comes into play as do the wooden notes, but it seems a little unbalanced.  In the finish the madeira wine takes over and dominates the malt again. 

For me this is too much of a wine but I can imagine that others will love it.  I simply miss my beloved whisky flavours and aromas...

Taste

Fruchtig-süß, Multivitamin-Bonbon, Kräuterbonbon, Honig, herbe Orangenmarmelade, Ingwerschärfe, zum Ende lässt sich vielleicht etwas Bitterkeit erahnen und es verbleit etwas Fruchtsirup wie nach einem Nimm2 Bonbon 

Finish

Mittellang

Comments

Ein gut gemachter Whisky, zwar nicht sonderlich komplex aber er schlägt eine Richtung ein die man so nie erwartet hätte. Er ist intensiv fruchtig, fast Sirupartig, mild, leicht und in jedem Falle ausgewogen. Wie auch bei den vorherigen Abfüllungen weiß Glenmorangie zu überraschen. Und das muss man Ihnen zugute halten - 15.06.2017

N- Potpourri of floral, succulent and pleasing sweetness with trace of spirits, but all good. Finely strength with firm notes. Pear, boiled white fruits, malty, crushed leaf with whiff of virgin oak.


P- Feather light, latte, sweet peach, spiced Indian rock sugar and peppery warm.


F- Short-medium, soft and gentle. Quality fruits, well spices sweet and spicy coats. Light but enjoyable flavourful drams.

Nose: Tropical fruits dominate, but there are other interesting elements as well. Clay. Chai tea. Key lime. Vanilla. Cinnamon sugar. Chocolate pie. Tart fruit candy (Sweet Tarts). Sunny Delight. Baked apples. Toasted coconut.


Palate: The arrival is sweet with tropical fruits—papaya, banana, mango, passion fruit, coconut, etc. Orange is really quite prominent—orange marmalade, orange smoothie, orange chocolate. Fruit cobbler. Honey. Sour candy. Gummy bears. Oak. There is some bitterness on the backend, but it’s a somewhat pleasant type of bitterness—reminiscent of dark chocolate.


Finish: More tropical fruits. Fruit jelly. Starts sweet, but turns dry fairly quickly. More of the same bitterness from the palate. Orange pith. Dark chocolate. Christmas spices. Baked cinnamon apples.


Overall: This is a fairly unique malt. The Madeira cask influence is evident throughout, especially on the palate. This is a sweet whisky, but not too sweet. There is some bitterness in this one, which can often ruin an otherwise good whisky, but in this case it kind of works. And as I mentioned, it’s not the type of unpleasant bitterness you sometimes find in an immature whisky. If I had to sum up this whisky in a short phrase, I’d probably call it “baked sunshine.”


With all the tropical fruit flavors, I imagine this would be a lovely dram to enjoy while sitting on the beach. On the other hand, the orange and spice notes would also make this work well as a Christmas time whisky. Regardless, I’ve been enjoying this one quite a bit no matter the weather or circumstance. Recommended.

This is a strong effort from Glenmorangie and a solid entry to their continuing Private Edition story. I particularly admire the great translation from nose through to taste - it's very well connected together with the apricots and sharp flint-like minerals providing something both solid and yet also rather memorable.

Nose

Sehr süß, helle Früchte, vor allem Aprikosen, Birnen, Orangen und Äpfel dominieren zu Beginn. Honig, etwas Vanille und dezente Gebäcknoten gesellen sich hinzu. Die 46 Volumenprozente machen sich mit einer ganz leichten alkoholischen Note bemerkbar

Taste

Verhältnismäßig kräftiger Antritt, etwas zu alkoholisch & pfeffrig. Süße Noten versuchen sich in den Vordergrund zu drängen, vor allem Honig und Aprikosen stechen hervor. Weitere helle Früchte sowie etwas Karamell/Fudge, Milchschokolade und Mandeln kristallisieren sich heraus. Geschmacklich insgesamt nicht schlecht, jedoch wirkt der Malt sehr unrund auf mich. Der ungestüme, scharfe Antritt und die süßen Fruchtnoten wollen nicht so recht harmonieren.

Finish

Mittellang, wieder pfeffrig mit Karamell- und Orangennoten und leicht trockener werdend. Ein Hauch Zartbitterschokolade und Anklänge von mineralischen Noten.

Jung, jünger, Bacalta.. Nein ich weiß es nicht, aber ich finde ihn jung. Der Alk ist nicht gut eingebunden und wirkt kantig schon in der Nase. Im Mund auch eher unrund, mit Wasser verliert er aber sogar noch. Einzig der Abgang (Marillen mit Honig, etwas Pfeffer) ist ganz gut und da merkt man auch den Madeira. Aber auch der kann die Jugend nicht verdecken. Ich geb dem im Schnitt nicht mehr als 6-8Y Alter. Für mich für den Preis ein Fail. 

Es gibt mehr zu tun als man denkt, es gibt mehr zu denken als man tut
