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.
Being the first distillery to clearly state cask finishing's better side, Glenmorangie certainly has better appreciated bottles like Nectar d'Or, Signet, Grand Vintage Malt
