      Nose - cinnamon, nutmeg, pineapple, powdered sugar, cherry, marshmallow, brown sugar, grass, apple, prepared caramel, honey, fresh oak, cereal grain, pear, vanilla frosting, mild to moderate ethanol burn. Taste - spiced honey, pineapple, brown sugar, caramel, creamy vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, black pepper, baked apple, lemon zest, pear, cereal grain, sweet floral notes, sweet wine, barrel spice, mild to moderate alcohol bite, finishing medium length with honey, pineapple, and baking spice flavors. If Glenmorangie was trying to create liquified pineapple upside-down cake, they definitely succeeded. This is a dessert dram to its core. The nose hits with pineapple, honey, strong baking spices, and citrus zest. The palate is similarly sweet and decadent. Again though, there’s some youthful graininess and sourness, which seem to be an unwelcome hallmarks of this series of Glenmorangie expressions. Overall, I like this one better than the other releases I tasted this week, but not enough to raise the score. I’d be interested in tasting a more aged Glenmorangie to see if some of that bright graininess is subdued. Maybe the Glenmorangie profile just isn’t for me. Many thanks to @jonwilkinson7309 for the sample. This concludes my Glenmorangie tasting series. I’m not sure what I’ll be tasting tomorrow, so it’ll be surprise for us all.

      This has such a nose and palate of fruit & honey. This is absolutely delicious and may become a household staple for as long as it’s readily available.

      When I first heard about this release, I laughed in my head about a scotch aiming to make the whisky taste like cake, so let’s see if Glenmorangie was able to bake/blend this into something a pastry chef would be proud to serve. On the nose, it really smells like a cake with caramelized pineapple, peaches, pears, vanilla cream cheese frosting, white chocolate sheet cake, light baking spices. So, the nose is cake; let’s see about the taste… yep, also cakey. The taste starts with a very creamy mouthfeel that reminds me of whipped vanilla cream cheese frosting followed by fruits of caramelized pineapple, peaches, pears then white chocolate sheet cake leading to a baking spices and medium oak tannins to a short finish with those fruits, a light alcohol bite and those baking spices lingering. Overall this is a fun experiment and interesting whisky, but I would rather just drink the 18 or Nectar d’or along with a piece of cake to get my cake fill on for the same price and have a better whisky.
