Aroma: The feeling of first smelling Glenmorangie for 18 years can best be expressed on the colorful autumn harvest celebration table. From the initial full-bodied stone fruit aroma, it gradually turns into crispy caramel covered on the roasted milk buds, which is closely integrated with the smooth, delicate and thick vanilla. The aroma of citrus and lemon is also gradually obvious, and immediately after Crunchy walnut flavors follow, before shifting to golden honeycomb wax, reminiscent of sweet dates ripening naturally in the sun. The sweetness is then replaced by a strong floral scent, which seems to transform in an instant into a green and herbal flower basket: mesophila and musk jasmine are mixed with bright and fresh narcissus. After Glenmorangie 18 is diluted with water, it will show a rich oak and balsamic vinegar flavor, and then turn into a soft vanilla scent. Flavors of golden apricots blend with dates and hazelnuts.
Taste: The touch of Granger's 18 Years on the tongue is like silk and satin, with a very round taste. Grapefruit and citrus first hit the palate, followed by melted honey, thick malt, and floral notes, before gradually transforming into warm, syrupy stone fruit flavors of hazelnuts and walnuts, all of which are Comes from Oloroso sherry casks used in the whiskey maturation process. Indulge in the inadvertent hint of toasted oak smoke amid rich, tangy dates and figs.
Finish: On the long finish, the sweetness of dried fruit and the sherry stone fruit dryness are particularly evident.
