Glenmorangie 18 Year Extremely Rare Scotch Whisky tasting review and a Coffee date vs Drink date

www.scotchtestdummies.com

The Glenmorangie18 Year Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, we blend them back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour. For a whisky of this age this expression has maintained, thanks to our delicate floral spirit and fine Oloroso casks, an incredible degree of vibrancy where the raisiny sweetness of the sherry has been toned down by the nuttiness of the American oak.

Aroma: Rich, rounded and sweet with dried fruits and a complex floral fragrance.

Taste: The taste is balanced between honey, malt and flowery scents. Dates and figs emerge in the background with a hint of wood smoke.

Finish: The finish is long and enticing with the sweetness of dried fruit and subtle dryness of Oloroso nuttiness.

I’m going to give that hat a bit of a roll next time it gets some air time.  I dig it!

Jeff Pickering says:

There are plenty of scotch review channels who get right to the point – some of whom I even subscribe to and enjoy for their reviews. But, they can be too humdrum for me, because 51% of the reason that I am a Dummyphile (102 proof?) is for the boring (subtext “entertaining”) banter guaranteed to accompany each episode. CRAP ON! You Scotch Gods! Slainte.

Love the review keep the “boring” banter coming!

Anibal Raposo says:

Great review
If you get a chance try their private edition whiskys
Also the Glenmorangie Signet is amazing

Keith Petersen says:

Ya, I was sipping on this last night while watching the Warriors play sloppy and lose. I got spicy and chewy around the jaw. No peach. It is not uncommon for me at least, to have scotch taste different when ever I return to the same bottle. That is the unique thing about scotch. Great review.

Rockdoc St Augustine says:

I very much disagree with the score. I love this Scotch.

W.O.W.

Jimidrammer says:

One of my favorite 18’s. Mostly Bourbon cask but a portion spent 3 years in Oloroso so that may be what gives it that unique nutty peach profile. I can still find it for $89 so I try to keep one around, nothing quite like it and to me better than all their NAS Private Edition releases which are bout the same price.

Samuel Speers says:

Great hat! Coffee LCD….Drinks…not so much. First date for my wife & I was lunch & Christmas shopping shopping. Asked her to marry me 8 days later.

Hi Bart. Another Pink Couch Campaign took place on Feb. 26 in downtown Tampa.  It was a success and can be viewed with this link, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnABXR-Vzf0    Thanks for asking about it.

Love the hat!

The only thing that saved this review from my “thumbs down” is a price mention. First, you get greeted with 6+ minutes of generally pointless info, and in the end – bum! – a huge score mark discrepancy. Yeah, 3 solid points sounds huge to me. That can lead to one conclusion only: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so all these whisky (or whiskey, depending on where you live) reviews are an FYI only. Without a price point given, they might be quite worthless for a real world whisky (whiskey) drinker.

Luis Wells says:

“I’m goofy my whole life” I love that!

Owen Davies says:

Love the hat ! Must buy this one in my want list

Nokomisclub says:

None of the nuances about “type of date” would have mattered if you would have worn that hat!

Daniel Hamilton says:

Watched a lot of your reviews but just finding this one. So glenmorangie 18 or tomatin 18? Same price here and cant decide which to pick up. Also some of these comments are hilarious they need to chill out alittle. Keep up the good work guys!

Yodavich says:

I’d like to watch your videos but not when you crap on about nothing for so long. Didn’t hear a thing about whisky until 6 minutes in

Shouryuken says:

I dont want to offend you both but god dam your banter is boring, I really just wanted to know what the scotch was like

Satan's Trilogy says:

This is hilarious!
