Glenmorangie 12 Years Old, Millennium Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 The earlier, and less expensive, of two millennium bottlings. In this one, the emphasis is on first-fill bourbon barrels.
Glenmorangie 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 The second of Morangie's twin peaks
Glenmorangie 1995 Artisan Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00% 8 This is a substantially richer style of Glenmorangie, but not overwhelmingly sweet. The balancing spices and herbs are all present and correct.
Glenmorangie 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.30% 8 Sherry wood is undoubtedly invasive but yet, here's a complex one. To be softened by chocolate pralines or almond biscuits.
Glenmorangie A Midwinter Night's Dram
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 I can't say I'm getting much Highland character here, but as sherry monsters go, it's ok.
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 A malt to make peace with the whole world. Soothing, graceful, satisfying.
Glenmorangie Burr Oak
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.30% 8 A malt disguised in rum! Very surprising but not less exciting for that.
Glenmorangie Côte de Beaune
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 As the glass sits on my desk, aromas and flavours slowly emerge, I like it more and more, but I suspect it will always be overshadowed by last year's Côte de Nuits.
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 A really lovely whisky giving Christmas punch, spices and honey. A distilled mead.
Glenmorangie Fino Sherry Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00% 9 A marriage made in heaven.
Glenmorangie Madeira Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00% 8 The madeira almost overwhelms the whisky, but the Glenmorangie saltiness finally sings.
Glenmorangie Madeira Matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.60% 8 One of the most expressive 'Morangies.
Glenmorangie Malaga Wood Finish, 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Reminiscent of the port finish but slightly gutsier and less sophisticated. I would love to try it, tapas-style, with Manchego, or perhaps Grazelema, cheese.
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Illustrates the extra dimension in whiskies when most distilleries did their own malting.
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 A standard malt? This is a very classy dram,so LVMH stop discounting. It only makes you seem like you're ashamed of it!
Glenmorangie Quarter Century
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Fantastic dram,but why oh why put it in such a horrible bottle?
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Again a real improvement on the old finish.Light.
Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 All very gentle and softly flowing. It just lacks a little grunt.
Glenmorangie Truffle Oak
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.50% 8 A superb fruity expression, with a summery aromatic profile. Water makes it even more sensuous. Definitely morish.
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Another belter from the Rothes gang.
Glenrothes John Ramsay
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.70% 8 A refined and fulfilling dram. Perfect balance. Complex without ostentation.
Glenturret 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.70% 8 Only 14. I'm amazed. A must try.
Glenturret 1980 Limited Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.20% 8 More rounded, and longer, than the 1972.
Glenturret 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 After dinner.
Glenturret 29 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.60% 8 An underrated distillery which, when on form, is up there with the best. More please!
