Nose: Vanilla, honey, and a very similar aroma as the older Port Wood Finish Glenmorangie. No peat, no smoke, but that semi-sweet hint of port. Very nice nose.

Body: Smooth. Rich. Medium bodied.

Palate: Very lively in the mouth. Spices coming out. Nice flavor on the tongue. Not sure what to call it. Perhaps apricot jam?

Finish: A nice finish, pretty long. A bit acidic/tannic. That I could do without. Perhaps this is from the 46% ABV?

All in all, not a great dram. It is good, and I could drink it all night on someone else's dime, but for my money I'll look elsewhere. I think I would grade this above the Lasanta, however, but under the older Port Wood Finish. The PW had such a fantastic finish, which this whisky just doesn't have.

Perhaps this whisky needed to age some more. There is a bitterness at the end of the finish that puts me off.
