General description

Very nice and complex in the nose and at the finish. The port introduces a very noticeable dark fruitiness. Tasty!

Nose

Plum jam, forest fruits and dried raisins, full, sweetness, christmassy, some hints of citrus

Palate

Oily, sweet, woody/ oaky at the beginning, nice berry notes, a tad of spice

Finish

Wlody oak and a bit dry in the beginning with long lingering dried berries, port wine sweetness

General description

August 22, 2020 - Beautiful colour, "Burnt Amber", using our colour guide within: Delicate sweet nose, a nice oily film; powerful kick in the taste, but a sweetness; then citrus - certainly winey, but not necessarily Port, for me. The finish is long, again winey, zesty, strangely smooth & so pleasant. Save this for your best mates 👍It's a definite must try and relatively good value!
I am going to add a couple drops 💦 next taste!

Nose

The nose was fresh & sweet - spirit evident (46%).

Palate

Powerful, nothing harsh - nice almost spicy kick. Earthy & woody, citrus orangey, or maybe drier still, grapefruit ?? and a benign sweetness remains.

Finish

Long full & sweet & sharp. An Oak wood comes in late - Lots going on - I like it; a lot👍!

General description

a very surprising and complex whisky.

red fruits and port on the nose.

the sweetness of the port comes first. but after that the spices and the rich full flavours of the whisky come through.it turned into a bold but nice dram.

rich finish

General description

I was very surprised to find this on the shelf for a little over US$50. I snapped up two bottles and i'm so glad i did. But I was driven more by the surprise of seeing a Glenmorangie offering i had not seen before more than the value price. The nose has a heavy influence of port with added scents of wild berries and tangerines. Taste is smooth and sweet with nutmeg and dark chocolate added to the port wine notes carried over from the nose. Finish is medium to long and slightly tart, probably from the port wine influence. Well done Glenmorangie for finishing off in port casks!

Nose

Wild berries, tangerines, grapes, wine.

Palate

Smooth and sweet with heavy influence of port wine; slightly fruity with notes of nutmeg and dark chocolate.

Finish

Medium to long but not very long. Slightly sour and unusually tart probably from the wine.

General description

Initially surprised at the alcohol forward arrival but once that shock wore off the rest of the experience was absolutely delicious. Beautiful port notes, mouth watering dried fruits. Good complexity and a very enjoyable long finish. I am dreaming of this dram with a nice cigar after a good meal.
