A recreation of a recipe dating back to 1903. Matured in a combination of American white oak casks and Spanish Oloroso sherry casks. Unusual for its light addition of peatiness - a reminder of a time when Glenmorangie dried its barley in a peat fired kiln. Non chill-filtered
Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 
n: lime sherbert, almonds, orange peel burnt with a wooden matchstick. Warm floral-honey scent with rich malt.
 
t: blood orange marmalade with a few drops of cherry liquer, nutmeg spice, and candied ginger. Middle is where smoked lime shows with white sugar icing sweetness and dried rose petal. The finish is a lingering sweet paper smoke and more candied citrus peel. A fun whisky but might be trying to do too many things all at once; not quite harmonious.
