Glenmorangie 15 year old The Cadboll Estate, 43%

Price: $85 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton




Glenmorangie has been growing its own barley for years, but this U.S. exclusive marks the first release produced entirely from its estate-grown grain. Honeysuckle and jasmine waft over lemon curd and shortbread on the nose, while bright aromas of blueberry and lime stand out. The palate is malty and full: shortbread with tumbling fresh blueberries, toasted almonds, and gingery spice. It's silky, rounded, and seamless into the finish, and beautifully transformed by a drop of water. Number 13 in the 2020 Top 20
