Glenmorangie Madeira Wood Finish

Again a whisky with a wine finish that is no longer available: Glenmorangie Madeira Wood Finish. I have been told this is the regular 10 Year Old that received a Madeira cask finish for several months.

Hmm, the nose starts off very nicely. Sweet on grapefruit, sultanas, apples and a touch of bubblegum. Unfortunately, the whole collapses rather quickly, leaving only caramel.

On the palate, it is that caramel, with some ginger, that can be discerned. Midpalate, the sweet wine lurks around the corner without going over the top. Towards the end, I even get a hint of salt pushing the wine back.

The finish is medium in length and dies a sweet/salty death.

Well. I just do not know. It is better than the Burgundy Wood (that is no contest), but really good? I will not recommend it. If you can still find it, you can add it to your cabinet for about 40 EUR.


The Burgundy barrels add some nice depth and extra fruityness, this is a nice smooth after dinner dram

Hmmm... I think you got the notes switched with this one. Madeira Wood is not Burgundy. I've got an unopened bottle of the Madeira Wood in the cupboard.


I found this one at a restaurant in Edmonton. I was surprised to see that the Sherry Wood was on the list, but unfortunately their list was not updated. So instead they had the Madeira Wood.

Nose: Thick sweet smell of honey and vanilla. A little bit of spice.

Taste: Chewy cake and nutty. Chocolate and cinnamon spicy.

Finish: Warming raisin at the start to a little salt to the end.
