Glenmorangie 18 Year Old

Being in a self imposed quarantine at home gives me a good chance to sample more of my scotch collection. It has been acquired over years of birthdays, Christmases and Fathers Days. This bottle is an 18 year old Glenmorangie. According to their website, This whiskey is aged in American oak for 15 years. Then, 30% of it is put into Oloroso Sherry casks for 3 more years. It is then recombined and, voila, you have an excellent scotch.

Color: Light Amber
Nose: Grass, citrus
Palate: Light and smooth, not harsh
Finish: Refreshing

You can roll a mouthful of this whiskey around in your mouth and it will not "burn".

This whiskey is an award winner and a good one to ask for if someone wants to give you a special present. If you can find this for around $100, grab it quick.

Head Count

I guess the executioner in Saudi came down with the virus as there were no beheadings in March! The count remains at 10.
