Glenmorangie A Midwinter Night's Dram, 43%

Price: $58 Issue: Spring 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This NAS Glenmorangie contains whisky aged in bourbon casks and some that was ‘extra-matured' in Spanish oloroso sherry casks, as per Glenmoragie Lasanta. The result is a variant with more of a winter fireside vibe than found in Original. The nose boasts dates, plain chocolate, caramel, and Jaffa oranges. Rich and fruity in the mouth, with more oranges, plus sultanas, roasted chestnuts, cinnamon, and ginger. The finish is medium in length, fruity, gingery, and ultimately slightly bitter. £40
