  • Publication: Distiller
  • Excerpt: Adding just a few drops of water expands the body, which without is a bit thin. A fine dram which will be a good start to the evening.

  • Excerpt: I’m not too much into oak-flavoured whiskies, but this one sure is one of the rather good ones. Now, it's Astar, but not quite a star.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is a re-release of an older Glenmorangie cask strength expression.

  • Nose:

    Sweet buttery bread. Apricot, lime. Faint soapstone. Rich buttercream.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Honey, apricot, fresh baked bread. Honey, some pepper. Light lactic bitterness. Heat grows with time.

  • Finish:

    Short, hot and bitter. Vanilla, caramel, honey pair with the bitter, but cant overcome it. Some nice apricot character.

  • Overall:

    This was nice, but again stunted by the bitterness in the base spirit.

  • Score:

    5
