Milsean (pronounced 'mill-shun' and Gaelic for 'sweet things') is the seventh release in Glenmorangie's Private Edition series. Dr Bill Lumsden and his team have taken inspiration from sweetshops and all their wondrous confectioneries to create this limited edition expression, using whisky which was initially matured in ex-bourbon casks and then matured further in flamed-toasted casks which previously held Portuguese wine. This is sweet with notes of tropical fruit and lemon sherbet, backed up with some ginger spice.
Nose: Fudge, coconut, blueberries and candied peels.
Palate: Cinnamon spice begins to develop, alongside yellow plum, melon and more coconut. Subtly oaky, but the focus here is on the fruity sweetness, which hints more towards orange segments as it goes on.
Finish: An intriguing balance of sweetness and spice finish it off.
