Price: $209.99 for 750ml
Distilled/Owned by: Glenmorangie / LVMH
Aged For: NAS, I read that older vattings were majority 30 years and up, but I find that doubtful.
Mashbill: 100% malted barley, uses high roasted chocolate malt
Cask Type: Ex-bourbon, sherry, wine, virgin oak, and others
Chill Filtered: No
Color Added: Possibly
Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Color: Dark copper
Nose: Dried fruit, orange peel, raisin, vanilla, hazelnut and chocolate porter.
Taste: Disappointingly watery. Milk chocolate dominates. Honey, malted barley, citrus and sherry.
Finish: Short and gentle. More malt and honey. Bit of berry and oak.
Thoughts: Tap the breaks on the hype train because there’s no way this is as good as the reviews let on. For the price the watery palate and weak finish are unacceptable. The flavors are pleasant, but this is a $75 dollar bottle being peddled as a $200 + one.
Score: 80 out of 100
