The gorgeous Glenmorangie Companta is unique in the sense that the astounding whisky was initially matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels and thereafter left to age in 60% Burgundy wine casks from Clos de Tart and 40% Rhone Valley casks which previously contained the famed Rasteau red wine. The produce is simply magnificent and has bagged the ‘World Whisky of the Year 2014’ title by Jim Murray the world famous whisky connoisseur.
The Glenmorangie Companta which is a private collection bottling and has been brewed by the Northern Highlands distillery of Scotland.
Tasting Notes for Glenmorangie Companta
Nose: The nose is big on nutty and chocolaty aromas. Red wine and raisins come through the dram in a gentle manner. This slowly diverts to other exotic fragrances of nougat, red berry, and toasted almond. Blood oranges and red apples make their presence felt. The rich sweetness and subtle pungent scents are evident in the Companta.
Palate: Notes of roasted nuts and fruit hit your senses right away. Red wine blends with dark chocolate and you can only imagine how great the combination is! Black pepper, licorice and nutmeg make their way gradually. Red grapes, cherries, chocolate and the fresh vanilla cream are simply irresistible. The Companta is so very delicious and makes for a great dessert to be enjoyed after lunch or dinner.
Finish: The finish is long and completely satisfying. Spices of black pepper and aniseed combined with a hint of clove oil and chestnut mushroom offers you a gentle high. The texture is a wee bit oily and a hint of caramel can be felt. The red wine and the chocolate which lingers are pleasing and comforting.
The makers of Glenmorangie Companta have proved that good things can indeed come from red wine. A liquid aged in red wine casks is a sure delight as is obvious from the blissful tastes of the Companta. Sample a bit and you simply cannot refuse the fantastic flavours. The whisky makes for a thoroughly enjoyable drink.
