Michael Jackson

Nose
Some oak. More vanilla. Lots of walnuts. Touch of peppermint.
Palate
Fleshier. Good wood-extract and esters. Some peatiness emerging. The whole potpourri of spiciness.
Finish
Firm, dry, rounded. Nutty. Hint of peat.
Comment
While the middle brother in this range seems best to capture the Glenmorangie house character, this older version is a richer whisky. I could like them equally, according to my mood.

Jim Murray

Nose
Not as clean as usual. A distant sulphur note where the sherry should be. Sweet and pollen encrusted.
Palate
A short, sweet introduction fans out into a mixture of sherry and spice. Levels off with peppery maltiness.
Finish
A soft smokiness lingers endlessly as does the chocolate malt.
Comment
A rich, mouth-filling dram that offers surprising length and depth to the finish.
