Interesting fact… Glenmorangie Sherry Wood Finish whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Glenmorangie Sherry Wood Finish whiskey, instead of whisky.
Glenmorangie Sherry Wood Bottling Note
A Glenmorangie finished in Sherry Casks that demonstrates clearly the effects finishing can have on a whisky. The distillery character is there but you can definitely taste the Oloroso. This is aged for a total of 12 years despite there being no age statement on the bottle.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Sweet earthy saltiness with much in the way of fruit. Red grapes, blackberries and raspberries.
Palate: The saltiness comes through more here but it's still fairly smooth and sweet. The freshness is still there.
Finish: Medium length with some earthy dryness balancing the sweet fruit.
Overall: A balanced, easy whisky that shows its finish clearly.
