I'lll start by saying that Glenmorangie is a favorite distillery of mine. I can honestly say there is not a Glenmo I have tried and disliked. I just love their style. This one is right at the top, probably my favorite of the range. This is a spicy one and that's why I love it.
Here we go...
Nose: Wood, wood spice, cinnamon, apples, apricots, sour grapes, mustines, vanilla.
Palate: Spice in a big way. All kinds of spice. Pepper spice. Wood spice. Spiced Vanilla. Cinnamon. Honey. Apricot, orange and red apples. The spiciest Glenmo I've ever tried.
Finish: Medium. Spicy still, the tongue is zinging. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Orange zest big time. Call me crazy, but Black Licorice??
This stuff is wonderful. It is definitely sweet, but not as sweet as I expected it to be. Again, the spice dominated and I loved it. Would I call it a dessert dram? No, but it definitely would be great for dessert, or any other time of the day. My favorite Glenmo and that is saying something because I love the Original, Quinta Ruban, Astar and the 18 year. Enjoy this anytime, guys.
