The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    Glenmorangie Taghta

    This expression's claim to fame is that it was crowd sourced and designed by consumers.  They did a nice job but I think Bill Lumsden is safe for a little while yet.  The nose is salty with a tangy citrus note.  Marmalade perhaps.  The taste is creamy with more citrus, oak, coffee and quite bold for Glenmorangie.  The finish has oak and spice notes and sherry lends some tannin.  With a little water it gets sweeter and smoother.
