    Fancy! This is my review for the Glenmorangie 1990 Grand Vintage Malt, which is now a yearly tribute to some bond warehouses that this distillery had. This is a 25yo expression, bottled in 2016 (math teachers required, lol). A really beautiful bottle that goes for around $460 - $520. Bottled at 43%abv The aroma is such a perfect treat for your nose: Orange candy. Caramel very refined. I am getting some sherriness out of this, Definitively figs and maraschino cherries. Amazing complex aroma. Coffee, brown sugar, Apples. So complex! It just throws you different aromas every time. Orange madness. Vanilla. On the palate it is a lot less complex and down to earth, very well balanced though. Vanilla surrounded by Oak spice. Sherriness a little bit. Caramel. A bit Fancy, Refined dram. Maybe a little boring. Aftertaste gives you something more, enhancing the experience of tasting it. It is Dry, Grassy. Hay and Ginger spice. Overall this is a very good whisky. Palate can be better, but i understand that fancy whiskies are often easy to drink rather than complex and full of layers of flavor. Still, it makes it to a solid 90 over 100, which might be consider poetic justice for a 1990 dram.

    Rich peaches and Chantilly cream give this floral pastry puff of a whisky a delightful and elegant body. While it takes some time to open up, if you have the patience you will be well rewarded with the depths and breadth of the flavour profile increasing in scope. A dash of water causes an increase in brightness, that I felt unnecessary. Gorgeous to look at, better smelling, and deceptively easy to drink. Surely this white leather clad angel can do no wrong
