Glenmorangie Companta - Private Edition WhiskyRegular price £171.42
Glenmorangie Companta (Scots Gaelic for friendship) is a rare limited edition matured in American oak casks, then extra matured in a selection of ex French wine casks. The rich aroma of Glenmorangi Companta reveals a spicy palate redolent of cherries and strewed fruits, with layers of blood orange and sugar plum alongside a hint of milk chocolate - yum! Non Chill Filtered. Nose: Heady, fruity nose with notes of chocolate and spice. Then comes truffles and the forest floor. The typical red berry notes arrive a little later, developing slowly with hints of toasted almond. Palate: There is a massive spice note, then something akin to chewing on pipe tobacco sweet and savoury all at once. Black pepper comes through in a big way. Hints of sherbet, ginger, stewed prunes and then molasses. Its quite chocolatey too, and tremendously complex. Finish: Sweet, very long finish with hints of clove oil on the tail. A hint of muscovado sugar develops, a touch of chestnut mushroom too. It remains oily and mouth-coating for minutes. Overall: Really Good - one of finest red wine finished whiskies on the market - Recommended!
