Glenmorangie Artein OB 15yo 46%alc.

Juicy, hold the nose, tip in and tumble about in the mouth!

Copper-amber in hue , this is an accessorising of Glenmoragie’s delicacy with Italian bruiser Super Tuscan red wine casks. The latest of Dr. Bill’s ‘Private Edition’ offerings of finished boutique drams. As a pioneer of finishing, The ‘Mo deserves attention and full respect on this otherwise dubious practice. This one works – but only by sacrificing the quiet charm of the ‘Mo.

The aroma is rich and syrupy; dried fruits, sultanas and raisins and candy-fruit. Sweet-feinty (plastic) and buttermilk. The fruit-syrup comes and goes and I found a little match-striker (but no associated sulphur) and happily no wine, just rich fruit. Latterly a very distinct earthy element came; the blurb on the box refers to the stony terroir in Tuscany so I’ll defer to a ‘baked earth’ element.

Tasting is where this really works; the syrup and the sweet fruit stick like paint and turning this over and over (three top-coats) hugs the mouthparts for a sensational gob-smacking licking.

I found a unique bread-yeast note in the finish, by-the-way.

Best regards,
