Country – Region Scotland – Highland Distillery: Glenmorangie Type: Single Malt Age: NAS Cask: Bourbon & Amontillado ABV: 43.0%
Nose: Honey, nutty with almond aromas. Plus traces of vanilla and cacao. Palate: Nutty aromas are also existent here. Caramel, honey and vanilla takes upto the front stage. Finish: A medium length lingering, floral finish with notes of apple pie.
Taking the name from the Dornoch Firth where Glenmorangie settles, this is a whisky which donates an amount from every bottle to the Marine Conservation Society.
I tasted it with a whisky-friend of mine. Despite being a NAS whisky, it doesn’t necessarily feel young. The extra maturation is obtained in another cask just like the Extra Matured series of Glenmorangie.
I can totally comment that it is a nice whisky to sip in the winter season with a couple drops of water.
