Nose: Yeast rolls, tart apples and a lot of alcohol. Palate: Birch beer, herbal, faint notes of licorice. Water draws out some caramel sweetness but creates an odd sensation of a crystalline caramel shell with nothing inside. Finish: Short and slightly numbing Comments: I find it odd that Glenmorangie is so often mentioned in the same breath as Glenfiddich and Glenlivet. Both ‘fiddich and ‘livet are Speyside malts while Glenmorangie comes from the Highland region. Furthermore, the taste profiles are very different. Glenmorangie is herbal and slightly medicinal compared to the fruitiness of the other two. The extra alcohol content is small, but prominent. This dram is for a decidedly different palate. While this suits my palate best of the three, I cannot recommend it over the Glenfiddich as a gateway dram.
