Scotch Whisky - Single Malt

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

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.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

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.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

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 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.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Madeira Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
8 The madeira almost overwhelms the whisky, but the Glenmorangie saltiness finally sings.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Madeira Matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.60%
8 One of the most expressive 'Morangies.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Malaga Wood Finish, 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Reminiscent of the port finish but slightly gutsier and less sophisticated. I would love to try it, tapas-style, with Manchego, or perhaps Grazelema, cheese.

Glenmorangie Manager's Choice Port Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
7 Very port-tasting and curiously unrefined. Having robust tastes in food and drink, I loved it. Some might find it lacking in sophistication.

Glenmorangie Margaux Cask Finish Vintage 1987
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 This starts so promisingly, but the soapiness knocks it for me.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Milsean Private Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Underneath all that oak the spirit feels quite young, although the youthful intensity sort of makes it work quite well.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glenmorangie Original
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Made when the distillery had its own maltings, and an eloquent advocate for such an arrangement.
