In the very first touch of Glenmorangie 18 years old you can see beautiful gold box, that makes this whisky as an ideal gift.
For me, the packaging is of secondary importance, so let’s get to the tasting:
N: a wine aroma, enhanced wine, brandy – a pleasant and encouraging for further investigation, the smell gets further sweetish notes and tons of raisins – almonds.
S: beginning is slightly spicy, crispy, then comes the main flavor of berries – blackberries, blueberries, accompanied by oak, there are also raisins and more fruits – peach, dried apricots.
F: medium long, fruity and oaky.
