A really good value set from Glenmorangie, demonstrating the 10 year old original and the three 12 year old variations; lasanta (sherry casks), the quinta ruban (port casks) and nectar d'hor (sauternes casks). Having been a huge fan of their 10 year old offering and not wanting to splash out on a full size bottle of the other expressions without having a taste this set was exactly what I was looking for. Each of the 12 year old expressions are very different and equally delicious! Lasanta has a very nutty rich taste and a spicy kick at the end, which is a signature of the original 10 year old. The quinta ruban has a lovely ruby red colour to it and was very fruity to the taste and ludicrously smooth. The nectar d'or had perhaps the nicest nose of the expressions with citrussy notes coming through, the taste also featured these citrus notes and a very rich full flavour. The quinta ruban was my favourite of the 12 year old expressions, but one thing is for certain though, they are all very special whiskies and I will be adding a full size bottle of each to my collection shortly. If you are a fan of highland scotch whisky and have not encountered Glenmorangie before, then I strongly recommend you give this cracking little set a try!
