Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Delicious infusion of sweet, perfumed notes of the candy shop dusted with a sprinkling of oak.
Palate: That sweetness is evident early on but soon diminishes as a fruity lustre gives way to a significan't build-up of spices.
Finish: Extremely long. Peppery, then fine malt interacts with oak and just a little smoke.
Comment: Eye-catching, complex and downright deliciously unusual.
8.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Distinctive, complex, rich, sweet, slightly winey.
Palate: Cedary. Very nutty indeed. The more raisiny notes of Malaga seem to play hide-and-seek in the background. Creamy. Nutty.
Finish: The characteristic Glenmorangie salt comes through very late.
Comment: Reminiscent of the port finish but slightly gutsier and less sophisticated. I would love to try it, tapas-style, with Manchego, or perhaps Grazelema, cheese.
