Wonderful Glenmorangie 80:20 with a funky label that looks like a bar code. The story goes that in 1999 there was a mix up and 80% of the 21 year old cask got mixed with 20% of another cask hence the name 80:20.
On the nose we have raisins, pear, red apple skins and toffee. Cloves and vanilla pods. Milk chocolate. Christmas cake. Creme caramel. Quite tannic and fruity. Lots of sweetness and sherry, with some spice and a little smoke. Water flattens out the nose.
Marzipan, deep sherry, espresso bean and dark chocolate. Woody and jammy (strawberry, blackberry). Some papaya, nutmeg and a hint of ginger in the background. Water increases the spice and oak. Quite complex.
Juicy grape, pepper, wood smoke and plums.
