Tasting Notes
Craig DanielsNose: Initially wine gums, raisins and dates then lots of citrus (candied orange peel, mandarins and blood orange). Palate; Christmas cake, glaced cherries and orange, some cocoa, sweet and creamy. Finish: dried peel, some biscuit dough and cream. Comment: seamless and classy, elegant and refined, while having plenty of flavour and depth.
Keith WoodGlass: Spiegelau - Colour: Dark gold / Amber - Nose: Initially malty plums, becoming more aromatic and slightly perfumed after 2-3 minutes. Also hints of wood and slightly toasted orange. - Palate: Thick and creamy mouth-feel, quickly turning spicy and filling the palate with toasted marshmallow, soaked in a rich orange liqueuer and wrapped in an oak blanket. - Finish: Very long - Overall Impression: A very rich and substantial Glenmorangie which lingers almost forever on the palate. Very good.
Oliver KlimekNose: Ripe fruit, chocolate, exotic spices - Palate: Coffee, chocolate, dark berries, ginger, orange zest, cinnamon - Finish: Long and spicy - Overall: A very good malt, well-balanced, full-bodied and very complex. But I think the price is a bit too much on the expensive side.
