Glenmorangie Companta is the fifth annual release (2014) in Glenmorangie's Private Edition range. Companta is Scots Gaelic for ‘friendship’. Matured initially in American oak casks, then matured in casks which previously contained Grand Cru Burgundy wine (60%) and Côtes du Rhône fortified wine (40%). Nonchillfiltered and bottled at 46%.
Nose: Rich, ‘autumnal’ scents of red berries and damp forest floors, with a hint of fragrant woodsmoke and notes of aromatic, nutty oak.
Palate: Spicy palate with cherries and stewed fruits with sugared plums, blood orange and rose-hip syrup alongside milk chocolate and brown sugar.
Finish: Mouth-coating finish with lingering soft spice.
