Glenmorangie 15 year old, 43%

Price: $57 Issue: Summer 2000 Reviewer: John Hansell

Deep gold color. This whisky is finished off in new oak, and it certainly shows. There are lots of complex wood spices in this whisky, and it is intensely deep and mature for such a young age. There's a firmness to the whisky that's very appealing. It is exciting too, with notes of toasted oak, vanilla, and a hint of dark chocolate.
