Pale colour of Glenmorangie "Cellar 13"

Postby JAL3 » Tue Nov 28, 2006 1:50 pm

Hello everyone,

I just received a litre of Glenmorangie "Cellar 13" as a birthday present, and I have to say that after reading some of the past posts here about it, I'm quite looking forward to trying it.

One thing that's readily apparent about this dram is its complexion: it's quite a light straw colour, more so than the standard 10 y.o. Does anyone know if this is because no caramel has been added, or is it more a function of the first-fill casks? As a neophyte undertaking his first few steps on the pilgrimage, I'd like to try a dram au natural as it were.

Thanks!

It's first fill bourbon casks and all the better for it.

Careful, it might be from the distiller's piss-pot :lol:

Its surprising that something so clear can have so much nose and taste. Enjoy.

Not if you eat asparagus regularly.
