Nose - Honey, and buckets of it. A Real tang of Greek yoghurt, and more than a touch of Grapefruit.

Palate - Delicious Honeyed Smoothness, less barley than one would expect.

Finish - Very long, Honeyed, lifted by a lovely citrus-peel freshness right at the end.

Not particularly complex, but a very refreshing citrus-driven dram worthy of attention.

Can you get more complexity for £80? Certainly. But it's easy to forget that not everyone is looking for complexity.

Glenmorangie have made no secret of their move towards a "Luxury Brand" with this product (due in no small part to the owners - Louis Vuitton, Moet, Hennesy). They've pulled it off remarkably well.

I must admit, I do like the direction that Glenmorangie are heading at the minute. I guess that puts me in the non-traditionalist camp...

@benellefsen How does this stand up against other 18 year old whiskies in your opinion? In terms of value for money?

I agree with the review and am drinking it as I type. It does have a nice thick mouth feel to it as well.
