If there were a group of friends and they were at a restaurant and it was their first time there and they had no idea what to order for drinks. What should the waiter give them, soda, wine, water, or whiskey? Once they figure out what kind of drink they want, what would the waiter recommend? Which alcohol would the people enjoy and ask more of? There are so many different options in the world when it comes to any drink, especially alcohol. what would be a drink that is not only beautiful to look at, but also very delicious and it has a pleasant scent to it. If there was a whiskey that could embody all these things and still be cheap, in terms of whiskey prices, that would be a great recommendation for the group. One whiskey that is pleasant to the nose, beautiful to look at, and is pretty cheap is Glenmorangie 12 YO Malaga Cask.
This Glenmorangie Cask Finish whisky is a dark walnut brown color. This color is a very beautiful color that when shown in light gives it that dark golden color that enhances the beauty of the dark walnut color. The color is one of the things that are not very unique when it comes to this whiskey. With this whiskey when you first take a whiff of it before taking a sip. It gives off this very intriguing array of aromas that surprisingly complement each other. One of the aromas that are in this whiskey is dried fruit. Now typically when dried fruit is entered into the equation it does not have a very distinct smell. Dried fruit has been dehydrated and when the fruit has become dehydrated it no longer gives off the scent and aroma it once had when it was regular and normal. However, dehydrated fruit is not completely aromaless. Dehydrated fruit gives off this faint scent of whatever fruit it has. So when it is added to any liquid not only does the fruit begin to change the flavor of the substance, but it also changes the scent ever so slightly. Along with dehydrated fruit in the aroma, there is also the scent of chocolate that hits your nose along with the dried fruit. Now the reason this is such a beautiful mix and blend of scents is because usually when chocolate and fruit are mixed the chocolate overpowers the fruit and you can't smell the fruit. However in this case it is a mix of chocolate and fruit. One does not overpower the other, it is almost like they compliment each other and the taker turns overpowering the nose with scents that make it seem like you have both fruit and chocolate in front of you at the moment. One of the best scents that come from this whiskey is the cinnamon that comes after the dried fruit and before the chocolate that neither overpowers or hides behind the other flavors. If there is anything we know about cinnamon we know that it is a very strong and overwhelming flavor as well as a scent. cinnamon is one of the most overwhelming spices/ingredients that there is. Not only does it overwhelm whatever it is occupying, but it also gives it a really sweet taste and smell. However, for some reason with all three of these ingredients coming together as one, the cinnamon not only enhances the flavor of the dried fruit but also lessens the chocolate flavor just enough to make the chocolate that much more enticing. With all of these enticing aromas and smells that are intertwined within the whiskey, it is no miracle it tastes the way it does.
When people drink whiskey it is most often the same thing. It has the same oak taste and hard taste that happens when it hits the back of your throat. Most whiskeys have a very distinct taste, that many people drink just to get that buzz and not for the taste. However, with Glenmorangie 12 YO Malaga Cask the taste is nothing like any old regular whiskey. Another thing that is so beautiful about this whiskey is that it tastes just like it smells. It is not deceiving or different from other alcohols. Along with the dried fruit, cinnamon, and chocolate. it tastes the same as it smells. The only thing that catches the drinker off guard is the texture. Typically alcohol has a smooth slick texture that slides right down the throat without any questions asked. However, the good and unique thing about this whiskey is the syrupy texture that it has.
The reason this syrupy texture is nice and very interesting is that it gives the person a chance to experience all of the flavors and the beauty of how each flavor and aroma coincide with each other. It is crazy to think that these flavors coincide with each other even though they are on completely different ends of the spectrum. The most enjoyable and outrageous thing about this whiskey is the long-lasting taste that comes after the original. After the cinnamon, milk chocolate, and dried fruit past the finish of the whiskey hits like no other. Instead of it being hard to swallow there is a nice hazelnut and honey finish to it that has been hiding until the correct moment. The honey is what gives the whiskey it's nice thick syrupy viscosity, as well as its sweet taste to it, and the hazelnut, is a surprising and beautiful end to a drink that you did not expect to have that many flavors and smells and still be able to taste that delicious without clashing. Glenmorangie 12 YO Malaga Cask is a unique drink unlike any other. With so many different flavors and spices, one would think that something was bound to clash and cause it to be bad, but that is not the case, not even in the slightest. This whiskey is delicious in its own right and is elegant in so many ways.
