I've had it in the bottle for 7 years....
Don't collect, enjoy 😉.
I didn't agree with any of the "expert" tasting notes until I added only 2 drops of water. I got apple and bourbon spices. The finish isn't long but enjoyable.
Vanilla, butterscotch, malt, candy dots on wax paper, tropical and orchard fruit, citrus peels and dried fruit with lots of light sweet notes floating about.
Smells like an olde time candy shop which, coincidentally, is what they were going for.
Vanilla, butterscotch, malt, candy dots, tropical and orchard fruit, dry cocoa, lemon zest, baking spice and dark sweets
Maltier than the aroma, but that same candy shop essence exists with light and dark sweet notes accompanied by fruit, chocolate and lemon zest with a light bit of baking spice.
Medium -> Fruit, powdered sugar and a buttery sweetness.
A 2016 release from Glenmorangie, this "Milsean" is part of the Private collection; a whisky i have seen a lot and i passed from buying it, and now that i have had a sample, i am glad i did.
Milsean is pronounced "Meel-Shawn" and is gaelic for "sweet things". It is actually marketed as very sweet and spicy.
Bottled at 46%abv, burnished gold color, matured in bourbon casks and finished in red wine cask from Portugal.
On the nose, it is cold, fresh and a little harsh. Starts with a little spiciness on the nose; fresh fruitiness like Pineapple. Feels cold on the nose, vanilla powder and white wine. Chocolate fudge. Acetone. It is not super easy to nose.
After a couple of minutes it opens into gooseberries. Green grapes is a very accurate note of this whisky. After a first sip, it gave me hard mint candy and more cold aromas. Jellybeans.
On the palate, it is a little simple and mostly spicy. Chocolate fudge and Chilli spice. A second sip released this earthy note like the one you can find in red wines. Dusty, there are some red fruits also present.
Aftertaste is dry and short. Powdery finish, it is so earthy it almost feels peaty. Ginger.
Overall, this one didn't do much for me. Frankly, it felt a little young due to the spiciness that were not compensated by other sweeter notes, and it didn't actually felt very sweet at all. If your whisky expression is called "sweet things" and it is not sweet, people are going to feel dissapointed because you are literally telling them they are going to feel something that is not real. My score for this whisky is a very fair 76 over 100.
