This whisky from Glenmorangie's Cask Edition shows perfectly how important is the cask when it comes to maturation. Upgraded Glenmorangie original, as I like to call it, is matured for 10 years in bourbon casks and then extra matured for 2 years in oloroso sherry casks. And as you can see from tasting notes, sherry casks had a huge influence. Generally, thanks to its spiciness and higher ABV bottling, drinking this whisky is heartwarming experience and with its sherry sweetness it is perfect drink to share with your girlfriend or wife.

Tasting notes:

Colour: dark gold/amber

Nose: raisins, sherry, vanilla, chocolate and little bit of cinnamon

Taste: sherry sweetness, spicy with hints of vanilla and smoke

Finish: long warm and spicy with vanilla notes in the end

After adding few drops of water:

Nose: caramel toffee, raisins, sherry, orange

Taste: sherry with dried fruit, smooth

Finish: sweet and spicy, not so long as when served neat

Thanks for the review. It will help me do my tasting notes when next I sample a dram of this whiskey.
