Nose: All sorts of red fruits - redcurrants, cranberries and cherries. Roasted chestnuts, rich wood smoke and toffee. Develops notes of apple further on.
Palate: Drying notes of roasted walnut, Brazil nut and dynamic spices - cinnamon, cumin and clove. Milky coffee and green fruits. Well-judged tannins.
Finish: Brilliantly long and satisfying. Spice and nutty notes last throughout.
Overall: Dr Lumsden has created a masterpiece of a Glenmorangie, one that shows masses of care and attention to the craft.
