The sherry wood finish Glenmorangie is a beautifuly golden malt that has a sort of elegance about it. When you nose it you get a complex aroma with sweet sherry wine notes and traces of honey...Just add a touch of water and citrus fruits emerge and maybe a trace of nuts. After a few moments the nuttiness gets stronger and the scent gets sweetened with vanilla and caramel. The earlier winey notes now become more sherried...the flavour that comes through is full and creamy with subdued flavours which turn in to a light, dry finish...and there's a long lasting aftertaste which engages the whole palate.
Amber hue. Nose offers a dry, saddle leather-like opening aroma; aeration stimulates deeper, more fully developed scents of ripe yellow fruits(banana, melon), honey, vanilla & Sherry. Palate entry shows succulent, assertive tastes of caramel, vanilla cake frosting & astringent oakiness while the mid-palate turns delectably malty & sweet. Finishes Sherried & honied.
