In 1843, William Matheson founded the Glenmorangie Distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Inspired by the Distillery’s peaceful surroundings on the banks of the Dornoch Firth, he brought forth a pioneering single malt whisky wonderfully complex and exceptionally smooth. Ever since, we have pursued our craft with uncompromising dedication – endlessly creative in our quest for perfection. To this day, we honour the Distillery’s provenance in our award-winning single malt. Its pure, smooth spirit is distilled in Scotland’s tallest stills, matured in the finest casks and perfected by The Men of Tain. And, in the hands of these select craftsmen, the guardians of our spirit, Glenmorangie will surely delight malt whisky lovers for generations to come.
Glenmorangie 18 Year Extremely Rare Single Malt Scotch Whisky spent fifteen years maturing in American White Oak ex-bourbon casks before approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, they are blended together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavor. Rich, rounded and sweet with dried fruits and a complex fragrance.
NOSE: Honey, malt and flowery scents.
PALATE: Dates and figs emerge in the background with a hint of wood smoke.
FINISH: The finish is long and enticing with a sweetness of dried fruit and subtle dryness of Oloroso nuttiness.
