The 18 year old has always been one of the best of Glenmorangie's core range and, in common with all Glenmo's offerings these days, it really looks the part. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Aroma: The cornucopia of an autumn harvest festival table describes the overflowing abundance of arresting aromas that tantalise at the first nose of Glenmorangie 18 Years Old. The rich, resinous quality of nuts cascades into a crisp toffee sweetness of crème brulée, merging with caressingly smooth, creamy vanilla. Hints of vibrant oranges & lemons are found. Crunchy textured walnuts follow, oozing into golden honeycomb that trickles over sun-ripened sticky dates. Then sparkling floral tones emerge, taking the edge off any cloying sweetness, with the green, almost herbal bouquet of geranium, tempered with musky jasmine and the bright, sharp clarity of narcissus.

    With water, 18 Years Old reveals a rich oaken, balsamic character that yields to soft vanilla. At this moment, the signature Glenmorangie fruity complex reveals itself in golden apricots and dates mingled with hazelnuts.

    Taste: Glenmorangie 18 Years Old slips like silk over the tongue with a full, rounded flavour, starting with grapefruit & orange. The palate is then entranced with an accord of melting honey, creamy malt and aromatic florals that segue into the warm, syrupy nuttiness of hazelnuts and walnuts from the Oloroso sherry casks in which the whisky is matured. Savour the rich, sticky date and fig flavours as they are heightened by the unexpected caress of woodsmoke.

    Finish: Lingering and enticing with the subtle sweetness of dried fruit and the nutty dryness of sherry.

    So smooth you''ll take a quick 2nd sip because you''ll think the 1st sip couldn''t have been right. This is it, no doubt about it. I don''t play the "my top shelf" game, I have one shelf and I''m open to giving everything a try, if I don''t like it I don''t buy it. This 18 year will always have a place on my shelf, it''s worth every penny. If you''re new to scotches I suggest drinking other scotches for a while at first, that way you''ll truly appreciate this one when you get there.

    The packaging of this bottle is riveting and eye catching and draws you into the quality of the bottle. When experiencing the subtle sweet flavors and it bold vanilla presence, you appreciate its floral notes in comparison with its fruits. Still debating if it is a "signature staple" bottle on my shelf since it is battling with other great 18yr olds and possibly might become one, but nonetheless, is a good Highland Whisky to explore.

    Managed to have a glass of this whilst travelling this month. It's quite possibly the best whisky I've had. Incredibly smooth, similar to the Original 10 but something extra. You won't be disapointed.

    Wow, my cousin just brought me a bottle home. WOW, the sweetness and the flavours which come through. The citrus, mandarin, toffee, oak, i cant help but thinking back to the days of eating my mums custard, with the malts creamy texture really coming through along with Vanilla and grapes! lucky i have a whole bottle to enjoy! 92/100

    One of my top 5 selections. I ordered 1 a few months back. My next order will include 3 of this bottle. Very smooth, along the lines of an ardbeg 10yo or talisker 25yo.

    Good Scotch, just enough of ... everything: smoke, honey, malt, and the ever-so-lovely grassines. - Toronto Tim (Canada).

    The most amazing nose and delivery you will ever experience. With a slightly stronger finish this could be up there with the greats of the whisky world. Easily worth the extra $ for nose alone, take your time with it...
