Elijah Craig Small Batch

This "no age statement" expression replaced the 12 year old Elijah Craig in 2016.  The nose has vanilla, popcorn and toasted oak.  Oily and peppery on palate, a little honey but not as sweet as nose suggests. Not as balanced as I would like but a little water helped and brought up some caramel sweetness and apple tartness.

    Glenmorangie Artein

    The first time I saw this was at the Victoria Whisky Festival in 2012 and it was popular.  So popular by the time I got to the Glenmorangie stand on the last night it was already gone!  The nose has lots of red fruits like raspberries and also sweet sultanas.  Reminded me of fruit salad with sweet syrup.  The taste is very smooth and creamy, vanilla ice cream and banana, reminiscent of Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or.  Subtle but very good.  The finish is dry, more fruits, vanilla, some spices like cinnamon and even mint.  A dessert whisky, fruit, vanilla ice cream and mint.  Yummy.
