Nose
Complex and fragrant. Crisp/plain oak, vanilla pod, coconut then comes rose petal, berry fruits, stewed rhubarb, celery and with water roasted nuts, currant leaf and even a little touch of the farmyard.
Palate
Unctuous. Rosehip syrup, little touch of chilli. Concentration and lightly waxy. The perfume nose is paralleled here: ripe fruits, strawberry, patisserie.
Finish
Gentle.
Comment
A clever balancing act here – and it works.

Nose
Spirity. A bit sharp at first. Then soy sauce and then big fruit. Lots going on but a badly tuned radio of a nose – every time you pick up something good it disappears again.
Palate
Golly, another surprise. Rich and sweet, with apricot, berries, dark chocolate and plenty of sweet pepper.
Finish
Rich, solid fruity and spicy.
Comment
Really? Wouldn't have called that. Those holiday taste buds again. A bit of a radical departure for Glenmorangie, but an exciting one.
