The youngest in a trio of Travel Retail exclusives, those already familiar with Glenmorangie's 'Lasanta' may find similarities here. While the Lasanta is finished in Oloroso and Pedro Ximinez sherry casks, 'The Accord' is aged in ex-bourbon and finished in Oloroso only. The result is “a punch of richness, depth and spiciness that great sherry whisky should have,” says Brand Ambassador, Brendan McCarron. It's otherwise summed up as a fruity and rich Glenmorangie showcasing Bill Lumsden's expertise in marrying casks. x Bourbon barrels deliver smooth, fruity notes while oloroso sherry adds gentle sweetness and spice. One litre format. 43% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Nose: It’s like someone mixed apple crumble in with Playdoh. There’s then waves of freshly cooked doughnuts with Nutella and mint choc-chip ice cream. Palate: Nutty and rich with toasted walnuts and cinnamon oats to begin with which is slowly followed by poached pears and smoked Applewood. Slight grassy hints of morning dew appear. Finish: A creamy consistency with charred oak notes creating a subtle smokiness. Comment: Every possible food group in a glass. What more could you possibly want?!
