A charming and excellent single malt offering untold complexity in the layers of flavours.
12 Years Old, Millennium Malt
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Fabulously complex with malt in varying degrees of sweetness and intensity giving an almost three-dimensional feel. Apples and kumquats offer a mixed fruitiness that lightens it a little. The oak offers vanilla and polished leather.
Palate: Big dry oak start which sweetens as the malt gathers pace. Brilliant balance of drier vanilla and sweeter toffee.
Finish: Extremely long and malty with the heavier, silky tones clinging, unusually for a Glenmorangie, to the roof of the mouth. The oak returns to add extra dryness and weight.
Comment: A charming and excellent single malt offering untold complexity in the layers of flavours.
Nose: Lightly oaky. Sandalwood. Hint of brown sugar.
Palate: Butterscotch, lots of vanilla and honey.
Finish: Light, refreshing. An almost spritzy, crunchy, toasty, dryness.
Comment: Very evident first-fill Bourbon character.
