Michael Jackson

Nose
Lightly oaky. Sandalwood. Hint of brown sugar.
Palate
Butterscotch, lots of vanilla and honey.
Finish
Light, refreshing. An almost spritzy, crunchy, toasty, dryness.
Comment
Very evident first-fill Bourbon character.

Jim Murray

Nose
Fabulously complex with malt in varying degrees of sweetness and intensity giving an almost three-dimensional feel. Apples and kumquats offer a mixed fruitiness that lightens it a little. The oak offers vanilla and polished leather.
Palate
Big dry oak start which sweetens as the malt gathers pace. Brilliant balance of drier vanilla and sweeter toffee.
Finish
Extremely long and malty with the heavier, silky tones clinging, unusually for a Glenmorangie, to the roof of the mouth. The oak returns to add extra dryness and weight.
Comment
A charming and excellent single malt offering untold complexity in the layers of flavours.
