Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A lighter, more flowery aroma but still not lacking in mixed fruit. There is an ethereal quality to the vanilla-malt complexity.
Palate: Sweet and delightfully spicy at first, then becomes richer and oilier. Barley sugar sweetness and some creeping oak.
Finish: Wave upon wave of brilliant malt carresses the tastebuds: sometimes sweet, sometimes a little drier.
Comment: For my money the best Glenmorangie I have yet come across: complexity beyond belief. Truly outstanding.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very distinctive, clean, oaky peatiness. This character is in the background throughout.
Palate: Flowery. Fudgy. Toffeeish. Nutty. Very soft, strained spiciness. Then toasty and peaty.
Finish: Firm, clean (almost crisp), peatiness. Then long, very soft, spicy and remarkably warming.
Comment: Made when the distillery had its own maltings, and an eloquent advocate for such an arrangement.
