Glenmorangie gave this whisky, after its regular maturation on bourbon casks, a finish on port pipes. I tasted it H2H against the newer release, the Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban.
On the nose, the malt is overpowered by the, in this case fortified, wine. After the initial sweet burst, it turns sour quite rapidly. It even reminds me of glühwein, although that may be due to the time of year. After that, it even becomes a little un-fresh. Cardboard and mould.
On the palate I get an instant pleasant mix of sweet (toffee, raisins) and sour (port), but then rosewater kicks in. Toward the end, it turns somewhat bitter.
The finish, medium in length, goes back down the sour path.
Yet another wine finish that cannot convince. About 40 EUR, but hard to find.
