Well put together & consistent. Highly enjoyable as the port finish adds characteristics, color, & nuance without truly becoming the dominant voice of the whisky. In simplistic terms, the base Glenmorangie is still there & recognizable.

On a humorous, personal note: when mom got the three years "all clear" from her oncologist, her immediate response was, " son, give me a glass of that red scotch. I'm celebrating. "

@ZackB, In celebration of your mom's "all clear", I tip my glass with another 'northern' dram, Old Pulteney 21.

SlĂ inte mhath!

Thanks. Old Pulteney is on my personal list of drams yet to try.

Given my line of work I love hearing an all clear.

I also like this whisky. Rarely drink it, though. Not available at LCBO currently and I've never owned a bottle but had it from friends and family.

This one is over $95 dollars at the LCBO when available. For a little more you can get a cask strength wine caskedA'Bunadh, and a few years ago, for $25 less, you could get Forty Creek Portwood Reserve.

I would classify this under "not going to buy but would definitely accept if offered"
