More of a cocktail than a malt as if some wine has been left in the glass and Glenmorangie poured on top of it. Help! I'm confused!
Manager's Choice Port Wood
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Soft. Raspberry fool, cranberry sauce, custard, stewed apple/apple skin, fennel seed, dry wood.
Palate: Sweet and soft, apples in red wine, red fruit and cream.
Finish: Very soft. Wine gums.
Comment: More of a cocktail than a malt as if some wine has been left in the glass and Glenmorangie poured on top of it. Help! I'm confused!
Nose: Rough', fresh, fruity. Brought to mind fruit skins and almondy cherry pits.
Palate: Big, smooth, fruity, earthy. Becoming marshmallow-like and malty.
Finish: Sandalwood, walnut, salt ... all the Glenmorangie flavours come powering through.
Comment: Very port-tasting and curiously unrefined. Having robust tastes in food and drink, I loved it. Some might find it lacking in sophistication.
