Review #1036 – Glenmorangie Artein

Review #1036 | Scotch Review #354 – Glenmorangie Artein

The Schtick: This is a unique Glenmorangie in that it is a blend of 66% 15yr old Glenmorangie distillate and 33% 21yr old spirit that is then blended and finished in a Super Tuscan wine cask.

Distiller: Glenmorangie

Bottler: Glenmorangie

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Sweet salted caramel, bright effervescent fig and currant, light black berry. Some pepper, light pipe tobacco. Sweet plum, vanilla and honey.

Taste: Thin mouth feel, but no heat. Honey, apricot, apples, pears, musty tobacco. Figs, prune, currant. Some dry raspberry and spice.

Finish: Short but vibrant. Fruity, musty, lots of tobacco and dusty notes. The apple and berry is unmistakable.

Overall: This was nice and also dodged the nasty bitterness most Glenmorangie expressions seem to display.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
