Glenmorangie Burgundy Wood Finish
Highland Single Malt Whisky
Part of the line of wood finishes from Glenmorangie that was discontinued in 2007 and replaced with newly packaged line of finishes with fancy names (Nectar d'or, Lasanta, Quinta Ruban, to be tasted later on the mission), this whisky matured in American oak casks for 10 years and then received second maturation in French oak barriques that held Cote d'or Burgundy.
Soft with cedar and enormous fruit. Full fruit basket, hold the bananas. Grapefruits, oranges, plums, red apples. Warm buttered crumpets, toasty.
Harmonious, major chords, sweet fruit, dry oak, faint vanilla, juicy maltiness. Rich and very drinkable
Quite delicious with an excellent nose. Easy drinking and satisfying density. Not overly complex but full, rounded, and well constructed.
