Not Exactly a Legend

Glenmorangie Legends - The Tayne

Reviewed by victor


Adding some older reviews - original review date was October 20, 2017. "Tayne refers to the local lore of a Spanish galleon's lost treasures in the depths of the Tayne Firth (now known as Dornoch)." - some site Legends is apparently a Glenmorangie series for travel retail, with each expression referring to a particular Highland legend. Not very familiar with those, but I do know that Glenmorangie makes some tasty drinking material. So, is this just a marketing gimmick to sell NAS whisky at duty free shops, or a solid effort? We'll see!

Amontillado Sherry (yes, that's the name of that particular shade)

Nose

Apples, dark fruits, brown sugar.

Palate

Oak, modest fruity sweetness.

Finish

Spicy oak, sherry.

Good. Tasty. Non-offensive. Could drink it all night long. Not very memorable, but something I'd gladly have in my shelf if I could find it cheaply enough. With so much interesting Scotch out there though, I don't see myself actively seeking this one out.

Score
