Official Glenmorangie Distillery Tasting Notes
Colour - Bright golden syrup.
Nose - Luscious and soft with an intriguing dessert-like sweetness. At full strength, rich toffee, golden syrup and ripe fruits (pear and peaches) are discovered, followed by Christmas cake. Later, the freshness of mint chocolate chip ice-cream emerges through the sweetness. Addition of water releases the softness of vanilla, honeycomb and lemon meringue pie. A complex mixture of coconut ice, hazelnuts and hits of grape must simmer beneath the surface.
Taste - The taste is smooth, sweet and gently oily and is reminiscent of lemon meringue pie and vanilla ice-cream melting on the tongue. The sweetness of honeycomb and vanilla is present throughout the taste. Hints of chocolate, nuts and raisins make an appearance in the middle then fade away to leave vanilla and lemon meringue. Wild mint and hazelnuts make a brief appearance before the sweetness returns to centre stage.
Finish - Long and sweet with an unsurpassed creamy vanilla character and a gentle taste of coconut.
