Nose
Extraordinary, contradictory nose: Jamaican ginger, coffee grounds. Then there's fruits: apple crumble with custard. Sweet but bitter, soft but roasted.
Palate
Soft, sweet and thick with chocolate, coca-cola. Lots of oak derived notes but enough softness of spirit to balance. Great Breadth
Finish
Triffle, orange peel and blackberry.
Comment
A bold and some would say a-typical. It works is a valid and successful improvisation on the theme.

Nose
Very intriguing. Bags of treacle toffee, parkin cake, fresh coffee and old leather. Maple syrup without the pancakes. A definite roasted edge.
Palate
Oddly reminds me of Stout, dark, roasted slightly bitter sweet.
Finish
A mild bitterness swathed in soft, dark fruits.
Comment
A great whisky and interesting to see what this new Glenmorangie future can hold.
