Scotch Whisky - Single Malt

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.

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

Glenmorangie Original
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Illustrates the extra dimension in whiskies when most distilleries did their own malting.

Glenmorangie Original
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A standard malt? This is a very classy dram,so LVMH stop discounting. It only makes you seem like you're ashamed of it!

Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Do you smoke after sex? No I have a port finish.

Glenmorangie Quarter Century
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Fantastic dram,but why oh why put it in such a horrible bottle?

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Again a real improvement on the old finish.Light.

Glenmorangie Sherry Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Quite heavily sherried, but the distillery character turns out to be surprisingly resilient.

Glenmorangie Signet
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A bold and some would say a-typical. It works is a valid and successful improvisation on the theme.

Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 All very gentle and softly flowing. It just lacks a little grunt.

Glenmorangie Speakeasy
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.40%
7 A pretty, refreshing malt. The high strength is more noticeable on the nose than on the palate. But it does need water.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glenmorangie Tain L'Hermitage
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Perhaps more robust, less elegant, than the previous bottling, but full of flavour and soundly structured.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glenmorangie The Nectar D'Or
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Long and sweet. Try with soft goat's cheese.

Glenmorangie Three Cask Matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A very unusual vatting (bourbon, plain charred oak and Rioja) has produced equally strange flavours. Less oaky vanilla and more Rioja than I would have expected. I like its eccentricity, but it loses ...

Glenmorangie Traditional
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
8 A surprisingly robust expression of Glenmorangie.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Truffle Oak
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.50%
8 A superb fruity expression, with a summery aromatic profile. Water makes it even more sensuous. Definitely morish.

Glenmorangie Tùsail
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A lovely robust, deep whisky with a delightful finish. What more can you say?

Glenrothes 16 Years Old, 1995
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Drinkable enough, but marked down for its ‘fousty' nose.

Glenrothes 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A great addition to the Glenrothes vintages. Stands up well among its fellow bottlings.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenrothes 1998
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Another belter from the Rothes gang.

Glenrothes Elder's Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Soft and rounded – a step up from Manse Reserve in being very nearly the complete article.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenrothes John Ramsay
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.70%
8 A refined and fulfilling dram. Perfect balance. Complex without ostentation.

Glenrothes Manse Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Quite light on the palate; a very pleasant dram.
