Glenmorangie Finealta Private Edition

Glenmorangie Finealta Bottling Note

Very, very unusual for Glenmorangie (though not for current whisky trends), they've gone and peated it. This was distilled from Lightly peated barley, to an original recipe dating back to 1903. This was aged in American oak and Oloroso sherry casks. The result is a whisky with sweet vanilla and lime notes, hints of sherry and an interesting whiff of peat smoke.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Soft smoke and dried fruit. A little banana chip, hints of cereal sweetness, rose petals and applewood.

Palate: Creamy, gently peated palate with spice, candied orange, peach nectar and tropical fruit. Develops on sultanas and cocoa.

Finish: Long, chocolate-driven finish with Corinth raisins and cooked fruit.

Reviews for Glenmorangie Finealta Private Edition
One of t he finest Glenmorangie expressions
I first tried the Finealta during a Whisky Guild Scotch cruise event in D.C. a few years ago. I was thoroughly impressed with it and even featured it in a private Scotch event I hosted later that year. I am extremely disappointed to hear that it was discontinued, because it is such a quality spirit with an interesting story. I hope Glenmorangie reconsiders producing it again, if not but in small batches.

I am very disappointed that Finealta was discontinued. I guess I will go back to Glenn Grant. The heck with you Glenmorangie.

rare balance
Perfectly balanced with hint of peat. I recently finished my third bottle. Glad I stocked up because i haven't been able to find more (2 left!).

Really good!
Tonight, I've had drams of Mac 18, Yamazaki 18 and now capping it off with some Glenmorangie Finealta. Fine fine stuff, holding its own against the 2 heavyweights. A touch of smoke and peat you don't usually get with other Glenmorangie expressions and that's what makes this one special. Definitely noticeably more complex than all the other Glenmos but just as tasty. If you have any experience with Glenmorangie, you'll have a great time drinking this one. I've only got the one bottle and need to find another.

Reminds me of the Talisker 10-year
Peatier than the Talisker. But similar otherwise, especially that peppery finish. Smooth. Delightful.

Best Glenmorangie (at a reasonable price)
This is hands down my favorite Glenmorangie. It has the lovely light, well-balanced and sweet flavor of their usual cask finish lineup but with smoke. Not really peat, but smoke (there are no noticeable or overwhelming medicinal notes, even if it is technically "peated"). It completes the character and is what a Glenmorangie should be. Absolutely delicious. Wish I could get it more easily and more often.
