General description

I'll never get the "hoarders badge" - but then, I dont buy them, to look at! This is another, quite pricey, duty free "exclusive"; & a bonus one litre! Completes the set in the "Legends Collection". Just out of the medals; in 4th!!
Not a bad dram; but I expected more from Glenmorangie!
Nice tawny colour, the spirit is gentle; (I'd go easy with water or ice.) Great presentation, gentle tears down the taster: .. 8 / 10! .. buy it if you can!
Absolutely superb nose, sweet with anticipated fruits, sherry & for me, some red grapes; but then the let down - nothing super negative, the PX seems too dry, the medium length, smooth finish, is very heavy on fresh wood & a little drying (virgin oak ??) - warm spices: Its not what I expected, but it doesn't lose too many points for that - when you swirl, swallow & wait, its a little bland, dull & missing that normal Glenmorangie 💥!! Still happy I have it in the collection.

Nose

N: Pure & sweet, winey, very inviting!
26

Palate

P: Malty, then nuts, creamy mouthfeel with leathery notes.
23

Finish

F: That marzipan, bitter-sweet nuts, drying & heavily oaky, cheap milk chocolate, medium length, clove, ginger powder, then a surprise sherry sweet ??

General description

Sehr schöne Kombination aus fruchtiger Süße und toller Eichenwürze. Macht sofort Lust auf mehr.

Nose

Sehr süß, dunkle Früchte und etwas Marzipan. Eine Spur Vanille und ein Hauch Birne. Im Hintergrund nussig, Zimt und leichte Würze.

Palate

Zuerst wieder sehr süß mit dunklen Früchten und sehr weich. Dann zunehmende, sehr angenehme Würze und wieder das Marzipan. Etwas Schokolade.

Finish

Süße Früchte und Eichenwürze wechseln sich ab. Auch das Marzipan ist wieder da.

Strong alcoholic nose. Sweet and spikey in taste. Did not have any water at hand but I think I would have liked it better with a drop of water.

General description

Glenmorangies Signet is high on my wishlist, but today it's time for the distillery's Duthac.
The Duthac is bottled at 43%. Additional colouring gave it its beautiful amber colour. A combination of bourbon and Pedro Ximenez casks where used.
Almost a fruity red wine rises from the glass. Thanks to Pedro for that. The spicy caramel and vanilla part on the nose come from the fresh bourbon casks. Very nice!
The taste gives you a sweet nutty caramel, a hint of chocolate and soft spices.
The long sweet finish reveals dark fruit and vanilla.
This dram is a very easy and smooth drinker. Thanks to Pedro I guess.
Very advisable this one.
Curious what the rest of Glenmorangie
has to offer.

This one scored a decent 84 points.

Lightly peppered dark raisins, dark treacle with ginger, nectarine and salty toffee.
