LCBO Note Status
TASTING NOTE: Appearance: Strong, oily legs clinging to the side of the glass. Noticeably darker in hue than some previous Glenmorangie releases. Dark almond and mahogany hues. Nose: Soft and lightly floral (hibiscus) initially, soon opening up to release dark cocoa and spiced plum. The layers unfold slowly and intriguingly. One moment lemon meringue transitions into key lime before bread pudding followed by leather and tobacco leaves. Sweet, fruity, and finessed. No rough patches to be found whatsoever. I could spend quite some time with just the nose alone, and I have. Palate: Full, round, and somewhat oily mouthfeel not unlike very well-crafted rum. To steal a word from the nose section: finessed. Absolutely classy presentation. Subtly sweet with notes of dark cocoa, tobacco, a hint of honey roasted cashew at one point, orange zest, brown sugar, and a never-ending parade of baked goods with a variety of citrus icings. Again, no rough patches at all. Score - 97 (Joshua St. John, thewhiskeywash.com, Nov. 16, 2016) Price $ 337.95
