New whisky for tasting in Jastrzębia Góra

Glenmorangie 15 years old Sauternes Wood Finish / 46% / 0,7l – Glenmorangie Distillery is unquestionable leader in finishing maturation. The first wood finished expression was released in 1987 – now legendary 1963 Vintage, finished in ex-Oloroso sherry butts. In 1994 Port Wood Finish was included into distillery core range only to be followed by Sherry, Madeira and Burgundy finishes. The 15 years old Sauternes Wood Finish, a predecessor to Nectar D’Òr, debuted in 2002. The whisky spent 10 years in ex-bourbon casks and additional 5 years in barriques from the Sauternes area of Bordeaux.
Nose: fruity with lots of Sauternes characteristics, apricots, tangerines, caramel, toffee, delicate mineral notes, hints of musk and oak.
Palate: smooth and winey, apricots, grapes, sour cherries, milk chocolate, honey roasted nuts, lemon pepper and pretty strong oaky notes.
Finish: medium long, winey, oaky and spicy with very little fruit.
