This is a discontinued expression from Glenmorangie that was bottled at 57.1% ABV.
Nose: Quite nutty with lots of almonds. Bitter cocoa, honey, strong green apples.
Palate: Green apple up front followed by oak with cinnamon and herbal notes.
Finish: Becomes quite oaky but green apple remains helping to balance the slight bitterness of oak. A bit of vanilla toward the end.
Rating: 90/100 – Nice to try a Glenmorangie at a higher proof – makes you wonder what some of their other expressions would be like at a higher proof.
Value for the money: I believe this retailed originally between $60-$70 which is a great price. Secondary prices are probably $100+ which is pushing it for this expression.
