Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A lighter, more flowery aroma with mixed fruit. Ethereal quality to the vanilla-malt complexity.
Palate: Sweet and delightfully spicy at first, then becomes richer and oilier.
Finish: Brilliant malt caresses the tastebuds: some times sweet, sometimes a little drier.
Comment: For my money the best Glenmorangie. I have yet come across: complexity beyond belief. Truly outstanding.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very distinctive, clean, oaky peatiness. This character is in the background throughout.
Palate: Flowery. Fudgy. Toffeeish. Nutty. Very soft, restrained, spiciness. Then toasty and peaty.
Finish: Firm, clean (almost crisp), peatiness. Then long, very soft, spicy and remarkably warming.
Comment: Illustrates the extra dimension in whiskies when most distilleries did their own malting.
