Nose is gentle, creamy and citrus sweet with a hint of oak. No really dominant notes, but complex and elusive. Impressive.
After taking several sniffs over several minutes, I finally get around to tasting. Warm and smooth - woody with a hint of toasted, sweetened oats. I get flashes of citrus and vanilla. Nearly as hard to pin down as the nose.
The finish is long and warm - initially all sweetened oats, that fades into creamy oakiness.
Between this and the Astar (the only two Glenmorangies I've had), I'm fast becoming a fan. Complex, balanced, intriguing and excellent value for money. That pretty much sums up the two bottles I own. If the rest of the range are anything like the two I have, it's not hard to see why Glenmorangie is such a big name in the world of whisky.
