After trying the newer Glenmorangie Companta, I wanted to revisit some of the earlier Glenmorangie offerings. I have a number of the various ‘wood finish’ 12 year aged offerings. I pulled out a bottle of the Burgundy Wood Finish.
The nose is slightly sweet, raisins, earthy.
The palate is vanilla, sweet, lightly syrup, muted spice.
The finish is modest, not lingering, sweet grape.
It is a very interesting contrast between the two. The Burgundy is, on the balance a sweeter, more subdued, single malt. It lacks the complexity, aggressiveness, and finish of the Companta.
