Glenmorangie 25 Bottling Note

A beautifully packaged 25 year old from Glenmorangie. Quarter Century offers thick, dark fruits, with those tropical, malty tones. Superb.

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: 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.

Glenmorangie 25 Year Old Quarter Century Reviews

Exquisite

I have never enjoyed a Scotch as exquisite as the 25 year old. Well done guys! Well done.

Complex, smooth, sublime!

A wonderful example of the talent in Tain. Complex range of aromas and tastes coupled with a long and evolving finish all combining in smoothness that is sublime. Just a wonderful Highland malt. Terrific!!

Glenmorangie is hands down the best whisky I have tried. The Quarter Century is just another example of getting my socks blown off again from these guys. I have ever expression even the Pride 1974 and I liked the Quarter Century was even better. Don't get me wrong. The Pride 1974 is awesome too. I bought 2 bottles of Pride so I can drink one and save one. That's what I always do. I love you Glenmorangie I drink nothing else now unless I'm at a friends or tasting. I drank my others over the years then a friend introduced me to Glenmorangie and that's pretty much the only thing I drink in my home bar.

A great pleasure though as expected

I have a bottle which I refuse to open but I ordered a sample and saved it for my birthday last year. I don't recall the nose much but I remember saying it was splendid. On the palate I felt the oak overpowered much of the other flavors; of which there was a cascade, faint as they were. I held it as long as it seemed I could detect a flavor from it and the results were mixed. I'm reluctant to say but having only been one of the three or four whiskies of this age what I remark about most is the smooth character of it. Though other flavors I feel are less pronounced, it was a great pleasure to drink. Having spent much time with the Glanmorangie Tusail just prior to, and after this one, I must say that one won my favor. It's difficult not to get caught up on the hype of drinking something rare and pricey and I was as reverent as I could've been with this one but wasn't really impressed as I expected to have been.

Amazaing

I have had 350 whiskies and I give this the honor of second best I ever had, second only to my personal favorite of Balblair 1983. I give it 99/100

One of the best

Creamy, soft fruits with vanilla, slight oak, with a long smooth finish and a peach hit at the very end. I had the last of one bottle and the first of another. I got distinct peach at the end of both. So good I bought a bottle. I feel the price ~$300 USD I paid was right in line with the quality.

Excellent, but (maybe) overworked

Nose: Sweet violets, vanilla, cherry, pink peppercorn

Palate: Glycerin, butter, grape, peach, with good alcohol mouth-feel. Rock sugar in the middle and a stewed plum and prune ending. Green pine, cinnamon, and vanilla undertones.

Finish: Lingering finish that oscillates between sweet and bitter. Red fruits, satisfying.

Overall: This is a difficult dram to characterize. I think it is excellent and everyone that I have served it to has raved about it. However, I normally give a little taste of Redbrest 21 or Balvenie 21 PortWood after this, and that is when the fun begins. There is a lot less depth and malt and depth in this Glenmorangie than seems to present on first taste. This is one of the smoothest drams I have tasted, but the sherry wood feels very heavy as well as the overall oak. It masks what is probably excellent aged scotch with lots of nuance and character. I would not disagree with a higher rating, but 7 out of 10 feels more representative to me.

A real beauty

Outstanding, one of my favourites (maybe slightly behind the 18yo Aberlour)
A bit pricey but something you got to try at least once.

It's ok but not sublime

Smooth, well rounded and even, with no off aromas and no flaws in the mouthfeel, but neither is there anything that would distinguish it as a dram worth the price it retails for. In the same premium category you can find for example the cheaper Highland Park 25 which absolutely wipes the floor with this one. I notice the short tasting notes above are mostly "fruit, fruits, fruitiness" which is a very accurate description and also a good example of the lack of complexity that stops this from being a five star dram.

I have sampled at least 100+drams over my years. this one takes the crown.
