After tasting this whisky, for some reason or another (perhaps it’s because my brain works in movie clips) the scene below seemed to sum up my experience. Invite me over for dinner and offer me some Glenmorangie 18yo and I might act just like Jack Black, Amy Poehler and their kids.
Perhaps you should read the review AND THEN watch the clip. Enjoy:
Grapes skins and maybe a little chocolate sauce.
This is such a nice juicy nose – ripe peach just oozes out of my glass.
Very inviting and, for me, perhaps one of the nicer noses Glenmorangie has to offer in the standard line.
Some more citrus with a focus on the lemons (again) and a bit salty.
Some salted apples (salted apples sounds odd but the notes do hit me side by side) and now lovely butterscotch notes help in flavor and in creaminess.
Joshua is a happy boy right now.
In sum – This really is one to celebrate with. Very luxurious – you feel like you’re treating yourself to something with this here whisky. Go ahead, have a baby; graduate college; get married then pour some Glenmorangie 18yo.
Special thanks to David Blackmore for the sample and Mazel Tov to you and your wife on the arrival of your first baby!!
