Glenmorangie 15 Year Cadboll Estate Single Malt Scotch
Aromas are intense and crunchy, with lots of oak, peanut brittle, malty or biscuity notes, and hints of crème brûlée. After a while, some orange oil and lemon zest. Ripe pear emerges, along with a subtle hint of menthol. A splash of water opens the floral nature of the whisky with hints of jasmine, rose and honeycomb.
A voluptuous, creamy texture leads into an explosion, of soft, rich, sweet flavors: heather honey, butter candy, white chocolate, pears, apricots and mandarin segments, along with a balancing eucalyptus or menthol note. The flavor lingers for a long time, with more sweet mandarin orange, gentle toasty oak and vanilla.
