What's in a name? Glenmorangie 25 Year Old Quarter Century whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glenmorangie 25 Year Old Quarter Century whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Berry compote, crumble, hint of potpourri, almost floral, stewed plums. A mere hint of rancio? Perhaps.
Palate: Initially soft. Creamy, fruitcake, tropical fruit.
Finish: Long, very slight astringency. Oak, some fruit.
LVMH is charging 260 GBP (incl VAT) at the distillery on Oct 2009.
You might like this single malt but try to avoid the bitter taste of buying at high price.
Rating 5 as I still wonder if it is serious or a joke from LVMH.
I have been enjoying nothing but Glen Morangie for a quarter century - the Original for the past couple of months when my supplier mistakenly got it for me instead of Nectar d'Or which I have been drinking for several years. Before Nectar d'Or, it was Maderia. My daughter sent me Glen Morangie 25 Year Old for my 70th birthday. I can't tell her that I didn't like it!!! I guess I will get used to it over the next 30 years.
No, definitely don't tell her you didn't like it, you miserable old sod. It cost her the best part of 200 quid!!!
Agrees with hmmm. We have had a case of this for Christmas the last 2 years 'we don't drink alcohol' but never mind they can keep sending it I just sell it on as I've just put another up for sale. Hubby says in his younger days when he did drink he has never enjoyed a whisky as much as this one.
Several cases were brought to the estate and we like to hand them round to the help as we gaze through the lead lights as the snow drifts beautifying the landscape.
The best whisky i have ever tasted. The nose is complex and yet oh so smooth with the flavours when fully thought over are something most different from it aroma. A must try if ever possible.
Yes I also get a case delivered every month or so but I stopped drinking after I shot my beloved dog dead whilst aiming for a deer on my estate. I'd had too many scoops and my aim was way off.
I swap it at the local Range Rover dealer ran by a raging alcoholic.
