  • Excerpt: Perhaps, though, this would be best as an after dinner drink as it finishes with a hint of chocolate mint, but just a wafer thin mint.

  • Excerpt: Adding water snaps this Scotch into focus, integrating vanilla and spice, with an espresso midpalate and a long, mouthwatering dulce de leche fade.

  • Excerpt: A perfect look into how port can affect a base spirit. This is probably my favorite Glenmorangie expression to date, given that the gross Glenmo bitterness is entirely absent.

  • Intro:

    This is a Glenmorangie expression that takes the 10yr core expression and finishes it for 2 additional years in a ruby port cask. It also gets a slight bump in proof, much like the Lasanta.

  • Nose:

    Sweet stewed fruits. Syrupy sweetness, figs, dates, currants and berries. Light pepper.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Sweet honey. Figs, currants, blackberry. Jammy and sweet. No heat. Really quite nice.

  • Finish:

    Short but lots of sweetness and fruits here. No burn, no signature Glenmo bitterness. Really quite nice.

  • Overall:

    A perfect look into how port can affect a base spirit. This is probably my favorite Glenmorangie expression to date, given that the gross Glenmo bitterness is entirely absent.

  • Score:

    6
