Made using “the tallest stills in scotland”, Glenmorangie is a delicate spirit and a great whisky for starters because of it’s price and approach-ability. The tall stills means the heavier flavors don’t make it into the distillate (they are unable to escape the still!). Glenmorangie has a lot of depth if you want to spend time with it, but is a great standard whisky for when you just feel like a dram.
Apples, fresh fruits. Vanilla, honey, lavender and lilacs. Very slight salt. Buttercream and a hint of sweet copper.
Sweet honey, light caramel, hint of grassiness.
Gentle but lasting. Honey and butter.
Glenmorangie is a whisky that I’ve tasted many times since I started with whisky, and I always find it interesting. It’s built in a way that matches your “tasting mood” – complex when you want it, and tasty when you just want some doggone whisky!
