Purchased for Thanksgiving, but opened early for “quality control,” this 15-year-old single malt is light on the smokey peaty notes that characterize other scotches. The Glenmorangie is heathery or floral, with notes of nutmeg and allspice, vanilla, chocolate, and almonds. As I sipped, it slightly zapped the tip of my tongue and the back, but it went down smooth with no burning.
[This is my first attempt at trying to describe the flavor and mouthfeel of scotch. Bear with me.]
