Original Glenmorangie finished in oloroso sherry butts and bottled at 46% ABV.
This one is on the rich side with the sherry coming through a lot more than say the simialrly aged Balvenie 12 Doublewood. Coffee beans, dark chocolate, leather and sandalwood on the nose.
Full-bodied and rich, the palate is reminiscent of a strong red wine like a cabernet sauvignon. I almost want to have a porterhouse with this one. Sherry and hints of chocolate and hazelnuts are present.
The finish is very spicy and nutty with a hint of vanilla. Medium-long.
It's very good although this is one I find I have to be in the mood for; it has a decandant quality but lacks a luscious feel.
