This NAS whisky from Glenmorangie is matured in Missouri Ozark Oak Casks. It is full and rich on the nose. First, I thought of Christmas. Vanilla, marzipan and cinnamon. Then some nutty and oaky notes. For a cask strength whisky it is very friendly in the smell. Perhaps too friendly.
Lot of marzipan in the taste. Some nuts as well. Almonds perhaps. A lot of spices and wood influence comes forward in the finish. Black pepper. Black pepper indeed! Almost no sweetness in towards the end.
