I have to admit, even though I started with scotch it still gets me very confused. You have different areas that produce whisky that taste nothing alike, you have the peat monster lurking at every turn, and you have the sweet sweet sherry surprising you once and awhile. So when it comes to scotch I have to do a lot of research to make sure I get my money’s worth.
During my research I stumbled upon a whisky review duo scotch n sniff. They raved about the bottle I’ll be reviewing today the Glenmorangie Milsean. This bottle was the 7th Limited release that changes every year. It is a non aged statement whisky which has been extra-matured in former red wine casks which have been re-toasted. You might still find this bottle on shelves but if you liked this review, you might want to pick one up.
Now onto the notes:
Glenmorangie Milsean Private Edition
- Highland Single Malt Scotch
- 96 Proof
- Toasted Red Wine finished
- 7th Limited Release
Nose: like the box art and label show this is a sweet and fruity whisky off the bat on the nose. Candied fruit with sweet toffee carry this caveman off to the candy store.
sweet toffee with green candy apples
Palate: When opening the doors to the candy store you are greeted with caramelized/candy ginger spice then some sweet mangos, cherries and plums
Caramelized ginger spice with sweet caramel Mango, Cherry, Plum
Finish: It’s the finish that gets me, you move from an oily sweet ginger spice to sitting in your favorite chair smoking some sweet tobacco.
Ginger Spice, Tobacco. Transitions from Sweet and oily to dry. Medium to long finish
