Review #1038 – Glenmorangie Spios

Review #1038 | Scotch Review #355 – Glenmorangie Spios

The Schtick: This is an interesting Gaelic named release from Glenmorangie featuring their distillate after a full maturation in American rye whiskey casks.

Distiller: Glenmorangie

Bottler: Glenmorangie

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Sour fruits, honey, sweet butter cream. Bitter wood.

Taste: Bitter, spice heavy. Thin to medium mouth feel. Sweet vanilla, light caramel. Pear, bitterness and some herbal spice. The rye is definitely evident.

Finish: Medium in length, but a good deal of heat for the proof. Young, malty and musty. Some apples and pears.

Overall: I don’t like this. Whatever rye they used isn’t complementing their spirit, and it’s adding a layer of ethanol and musty youth to the already bitter base spirit.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 4
