The Elementa is the second of Glenmorangie's new Travel Retail whiskies released in late 2020, in this case, celebrating the art of wood finishing. Thirteen years in bourbon barrels followed by nine to twelve months in charred virgin American oak casks results in an unusual age statement with sweet, woody depths and a spicy edge that's also creamy with notes of vanilla, lemon peel and crystalised ginger. One litre format. 43% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Nose: Quite gentle at first. Strawberries, dark chocolate and cracked black pepper, just a touch of aged balsamic. Slabs of toffee and rose petals, peanut brittle. Soft as possible wood notes. Oak chests. Palate: Sweet and all that honey comes in. Fruit as well with those strawberries, oak gets a grip. Fizzy sherbet. Treacle tart, jammy with plump blackcurrants. Finish: Long, sweet and honeyed, just a hint of bitter walnut skin to balance it. Ginger prickle eventually. Comment: Fairly well balanced and straight forward too. -

...Vanilla and honey enlivened by mild clove spice. An easy-drinking mellow malt. 4.5 Stars -
