It is not horrible - I will manage to finish the bottle. Hence the score. But it does have its horrifying moments. And this being their official 18 YO expression, that's just sad. They can do much better than this, as their Private Editions can attest.

Smells medicinal. An unidentifiable spice that I "do not like." Whatever that means...) Mentos? Jaeger? Relaxes itself after a while. Gets more apple like. OK. Ready to drink now.

Taste: Ugh. Something wretched and rotten. Deviled eggs. Not something I am looking for in a drink. Sweet. Sour. Boom. Bam. Gone. And that's it.

If it makes a difference, this was purchased in a presentation box. Not sure if it was an off bottling. It seems more recently releases are sans box.

Anyway, final assessment on the Glenmorangie 18 is not worth the price and not a repeat purchase.

Not top tier Glenmo for me, either. Only had one sample, but that one tasted just like your review...and didn't make me want to buy a bottle. With something like this, a core expression from a fine distillery, you just hope that the next batch will be better. I do, anyway.
