Glenmorangie Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky 18 year old
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland|
Rich rounded and sweet aroma with dried fruits and a complex floral fragrance. The taste is balanced between honey, malt and flowery scents. Dates and figs emerge in the background with a hint of wood smoke. The finish is long and enticing with the sweetness of dried fruit and subtle dryness of Oloroso nuttiness.
Despite the rich, buttery scent this single malt sips relatively dry. Rounded pear and sherry notes lead the palate at first, drying to leather and cigar wrapper and finishing long, with lemon zest and ginger zing. Water brings out more fruit, a tinge of violet, sprinkles of brown sugar and cinnamon sweetness, and a smoky whiff on the finish. Amazing complexity.
