Taste note

  • Colour:

    Deep copper

  • Nose:

    An interesting nose with a few pleasant contradictions to keep things lively. Both fruity and somewhat spicy with a little graininess mixed in for good measure. There is a softness and boldness mingling in the air just above the glass. Decent amount of cinnamon early on with very subtle oak and big note of soft butterscotch candies in wax paper, and butter melting on a warm sourdough biscuit. Some virgin oak spices and hints of subtle burned wood notes. It smells like a Bourbon but better.

  • Palate:

    Unmistakably Glenmorangie. Sweet. Full, yet delicate. Slight bitterness in just the right measure to balance everything out. There is a cinnamon-roasted almond note throughout this whisky. The familiar Glenmorangie citrus zest is also present. Not nearly as oaky as one might expect, the years have mellowed this whisky.

  • Finish:

    The finish is enjoyably long and soft. There are a few spice notes which whisper their presence late, but never speak up enough to derail the sweet and definitively drinkable dram.

  • Conclusion:

    Glenmorangie Ealanta is single malt of distinction and quality, to be sure. I found the entire presentation to be quite enjoyable. Being named World Whisky of the Year in 2014 isn't for nothing. I recommend this whisky to someone that likes the taste of Glenmorangie. The price it currently fetches on the secondary market as a result is flatly ridiculous. But that's just my opinion.
