Scotch Whisky - Single Malt

Glenmorangie 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 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.

Glenmorangie 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 The second of Morangie's twin peaks

Glenmorangie 1977
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
3 Very juicy wood, but just too much of it?

Glenmorangie 1991, Sauternes Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Not easy to evaluate what sauternes casks have brought in. An extra sweetness maybe but no particular sauternes aromas. Appreciable bottling strength.

Glenmorangie 1995 Artisan Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
8 This is a substantially richer style of Glenmorangie, but not overwhelmingly sweet. The balancing spices and herbs are all present and correct.

Glenmorangie 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A confident, handsome whisky.

Glenmorangie 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.30%
8 Sherry wood is undoubtedly invasive but yet, here's a complex one. To be softened by chocolate pralines or almond biscuits.

Glenmorangie 30 Years Old, Pride 1981
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.70%
8 Odd, askew, individual and marvellous but way too pricey. On liquid alone the score is 9.1

Glenmorangie A Midwinter Night's Dram
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 I can't say I'm getting much Highland character here, but as sherry monsters go, it's ok.

Glenmorangie Artein
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
9 Unlike other double matured samples here this shows integration and is distillate rather than wood driven.

Glenmorangie Artisan
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A malt to make peace with the whole world. Soothing, graceful, satisfying.

Glenmorangie Astar
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.10%
8 A gorgeous,luscious dram. ‘Morangie to the max.

Glenmorangie Burgundy Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Seems simple at first, but then develops stylishly.

Glenmorangie Burr Oak
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.30%
8 A malt disguised in rum! Very surprising but not less exciting for that.

Glenmorangie Cognac Matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Crisp, but not as characterful as might be hoped.

Glenmorangie Companta
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
4 A well balanced sherry whisky. I prefer the palate to the nose with this.

Glenmorangie Cote d'or Burgundy Wood Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A beautifully balanced Highlander. Serious, reliable, pleasantly displaying a good array of flavours. Maybe the wine cask has imparted more intensity.

Glenmorangie Côte de Beaune
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 As the glass sits on my desk, aromas and flavours slowly emerge, I like it more and more, but I suspect it will always be overshadowed by last year's Côte de Nuits.

Glenmorangie Dornoch
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 All in all very moreish whisky with some oaky bite adding a bit of oomph. Really rather good.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Duthac
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A really lovely whisky giving Christmas punch, spices and honey. A distilled mead.

Glenmorangie Ealanta 19 Years Old
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 46.00%
8 Less complexity on the palate, but the nose can pop round for a visit anytime it likes.

Glenmorangie Finealta
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A clever balancing act here – and it works.

Glenmorangie Fino Sherry Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
8 The light saltiness in a coastal whisky and near-coastal sherry make this a delight.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Fino Sherry Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
9 A marriage made in heaven.

Glenmorangie La Santa
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Very well integrated. A real improvement.
