Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate Batch 1 takes single malt Scotch whisky to a new level. Crafted entirely from barley grown on the distillery's own Cadboll Estate, it boasts a unique terroir-driven flavor profile. Aged in ex-bourbon casks, this 15-year-old whisky offers a complex balance of oaky depths, rounded smoothness, and hints of nuts and sweet spice.

Description

Aroma

Initial Impression: Look for a gentle sweetness with hints of honey and vanilla extract. These notes likely arise from the 15 years spent in ex-bourbon casks. Alongside the sweetness, a subtle earthiness might emerge, reflecting the character of the estate-grown Cadboll barley. Some enthusiasts detect a touch of floral notes like lavender or chamomile.

Deeper Sniffs: As you delve deeper, expect a hint of oak influence to come forward. This might present as toasted wood or baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Depending on the specific cask used, a touch of citrus zest or even a hint of coconut could be present.

Palate

First Sip: The medium body offers a satisfying mouthfeel without being heavy. The sweetness from the aroma translates onto the palate, with honey and vanilla flavors taking center stage. The influence of the ex-bourbon casks might also reveal a hint of caramel or butterscotch.

Midpalate: As the whisky opens up, the oak influence becomes more noticeable. Hints of toasted wood and subtle tannins add complexity to the sweetness. This is where the unique character of the Cadboll Estate barley shines. Expect a subtle earthiness or a hint of nuttiness like almonds or hazelnuts, differentiating it from typical Glenmorangie expressions.

Finish

Lingering Flavors: The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a pleasant warmth and a touch of oaky dryness on the palate. Hints of vanilla and baking spice linger alongside a subtle nuttiness. The overall finish is smooth and balanced, showcasing the harmonious marriage of barley, cask, and time.
