The best of the four 12yr old expressions. It's the woody/nutty finish that does it for me which is delicious. Will definitely buy again.

There are many reviews here with tasting notes so I'll avoid that and just state that this is very good stuff, but it has lost a bit on me over the weeks. Still, a real winter warmer. Very good!

Very smooth and easy on the palate, especially with a drop of water. Wonderful stuff!

This one tastes so different to the Original Glenmorangie. it has a deeper aroma like dark chocolate, nutmeg, caramel and cinnamon. In the palate you can taste the sherry and a little bit of smokey citrus flavour.
I would say that it is a little bit complex and even harsh un-diluted. I would recommend to have it with a splash of water as it will unlock its full flavours and aroma, improving its smoothness.

"Nose": Limes, oranges, raspberries, fog hanging over a bay, and brine of the sea in the air. "Palate": Powerful arrival of sweet sherry! Huge! Big and spicy, raisins, plums, prunes and oak somewhere underneath. A tad fiery upon first opening bottle. Let a week pass and what was once hot becomes great warmth. "Finish": Tingling oak, drying with smoke and somewhat winey.

Good 12YO Glenmorangie - taste as good as some other 15YO I tired before.

I have had all current standard Glenmorangies excepting GM25 and love them but this is at the bottom in terms of this fantatsic distillery. Look elsewhere if you are sherry inclined, maybe Balvenie Doublewood, Auchentoshan 3 Wood or a young Macallan. If you want a quality Glenmorangie at a good price go Nectar or Original.

This is a great allrounder. I'm more of an Islay or Talisker fan myself but I keep a couple of smoother drams as well. This is one of the best with a good nose, a brief kick as it hits the centre of your tongue and a fantastic sweet lingering after-taste. Don't think just buy it.

At first, I found the overiding taste on the palate to be a strong flavour of sultanas / raisins, I presume from the sherry casks used to finish the maturation process for this fine whisky. But after a few more single and double measures I grew to like it very much. Typical Glenmorangie..very rich, complex and alluring, and definitely as smooth as it says on the bottle. I'd definitely recommend this one purely for its quality of combined richness, and smoothness.

Nose: Sherry! Sweet, honeyed barley, dark Chocolate/ slight liquorish bitterness perhaps, slightly briny, some slight sweet pine wood notes.Palate: Immediate sweet barley arrival. Heather honey, dark taffy, barley sugar, not a liquorish but a chocolate note that starts as dark chocolate and then turns to milk chocolate, sherry, all hit your palate at the same time and all are beautifully woven together. Finish: Crisp and lingering. A Chocolate finish. Wonderful! An after-dinner/dessert dram!

Just got this bottle and all I can say is WOW! I love it! Even more so then the highland park 12 year old I recently got. This is smooth full flavor after dinner great nosing scotch. Buy with confidence you just can't go wrong with this dram!
