meademule gave this whisky 87 points

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.

[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...

Color
Pale gold
Nose

unfassbar blumig-süß. Überreife Tropenfrüchte wie Ananas (leicht spritzig), aber auch buttrige Mango und Papaya, untermalt von einer wunderbaren Vanillesüße. Türkischer Honig, Marzipan, dahinter dann eine leicht mineralische Note (wo auch immer die plötzlich herkommt). Oreokekse.

Taste

süß-saurer Antritt, weich und cremig. Der Alkohol prickelt minimal, trägt aber wunderbar die Aromen auf die Zunge. Englische Orangenmarmelade mit angenehmer Bitterkeit, gezuckerte Limette (Caipirinha lässt grüßen) und noch nicht reife Maracuja. Saure Weingummis.

Finish

warm, zartbitter und relativ lang mit schöner Getreidenote, sowie Zimtzucker.

Comments

weiß zu gefallen, eine logische Entwicklung des 10-jährigen. Dazu steht allerdings der Preis nicht in Relation.

In der Nase nach ein wenig Verweilzeit im Glas sehr verheißungsvoll mit tropischen Früchten und einer tollen Süße. Nach etwas Ruhezeit ist noch etwas Vanille und eine deutliche Zitrusfrische bemerkbar. 

Direkt im Mund ebenfalls angenehm, breitet sich voll aus, schlägt dann aber in eine Peffrigkeit / Würze mit einer leichten Bitterkeit. 

Der Abgang ist immer noch pfeffrig / würzig gepaart mit Walnüsse. Mittellanger Abgang, leichte Frucht bleibt noch für eine gewisse Zeit im Mund. 

Insgesamt genügt mir ein Sample zum Kennenlernen. Eine Flasche werde ich davon aber nicht kaufen. Da haben mir die Madeira Finish Ausgaben von Benriach und Glenfiddich besser gefallen.
