Glenmorangie Artein

Glenmorangie Artein

Glenmorangie Artein

2/3 15yo and 1/3 21yo
Matured in bourbon casks
Extra matured in Super-Tuscan casks
46% ABV

Nose: Chestnut, rhubarb candy, roses, maraschino cherry, carrot cake, ripe melon. An unusual nose with lots of complexity. Dirtier than your Glenmorangie Original, as big as the 25yo but different, much fruitier.

Palate: Again very different here. Bitter-sweet pencil woodiness, carmelised fruit, a touch of chocolate. Lively and sweet.

Finish: Dying slowly through sweet and smooth to slightly vegetal.

Overall: A Glenmorangie extraordinaire it is not, fans of the Original and the 25yo may find this one strange. But if you’re quite open-minded and don’t mind that extra bit of sweetness, you will find Glenmorangie Artein a single malt of remarkable merit and worth going back to. A well balanced red wine finish is a rare animal indeed and all fans of weird and wonderful will want to add this to their collections. At £70 a bottle I personally will have to give it a miss though.
