Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish Malt Whisky Tasting Notes;
Colour: Antique copper: golden, but with a rosey hue.
Nose; With a drop of water, the key aromas are of butterscotch and dark chocolate, but with fresh minty notes and a trace of dryness, like lint.
There is some sandalwood here, and citrus fruit, oranges, perhaps tangerine, even a hint of allspice. With a little more water, lighter scents begin to emerge: grass and hay, hazelnuts and candied peel.
Taste: The mouthfeel is voluptuously smooth, like sipping velvet. The entire palate is engaged, a most interesting and complex balance of sweet and dry flavours.
The bitter chocolate and the fresh mintiness noted as aromas are apparent. In the satisfying, lingering finish, a hint of port reveals itself for the first time, along with walnuts.
Finish: A remarkable whisky, perfect after a good meal or to savour at any time.
