The Schtick: This is a Glenmorangie expression that takes the 10yr core expression and finishes it for 2 additional years in a ruby port cask.
ABV: 43% ABV
Age: 12 Years
Nose: Sweet stewed fruits. Syrupy sweetness, figs, dates, currants and berries. Light pepper.
Taste: Medium mouth feel. Sweet honey. Figs, currants, blackberry. Jammy and sweet. No heat. Really quite nice.
Finish: Short but lots of sweetness and fruits here. No burn, no signature Glenmo bitterness. Really quite nice.
Overall: A perfect look into how port can affect a base spirit. This is probably my favorite Glenmorangie expression to date, given that the gross Glenmo bitterness is entirely absent.
