Vale of tranquillity
GLENMORANGIE 10 -YEAR-OLD ORIGINAL
Matured in a combination of first-and-second-fill American white oak casks for 10 years, the expression is a benchmark for creamy, approachable single malt. A long-running go-to dram for many whisky enthusiasts, this whisky is superb as an aperitif, though more than suitable for enjoying on a cooler evening.
GLENMORANGIE 12-YEAR-OLD LASANTA SHERRY CASK FINISH
This is the 12 year old, Sherry cask finished expression from Glenmorangie, dubbed The Lasanta. It first matures in bourbon casks before being moved over to Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks for a finishing period. Plenty rich and creamy with dark chocolate, dried fruit and fresh honey.
GLENMORANGIE 13-YEAR-OLD COGNAC CASK FINISH
A 13-year-old single malt from Glenmorangie that has been finished in refill Cognac casks, creating soft aromas of cinnamon-baked apples, cedar wood, earthy moss, yellow plums and leather that fill the nose. The palate offers notes of orange oil, buttery shortbread, clove, toasted almonds, caramelised fruit and warm pastry.
GLENMORANGIE 14-YEAR-OLD QUINTA RUBAN PORT CASK FINISH
A full-bodied, silky-smooth single malt from Glenmorangie, finished in a Quinta Ruban port cask, creating a rich chocolate flavour. Gentle aromas of Seville oranges and walnut build into rich dark chocolate, sandalwood and spicy pepper. The palate initially offers notes of mint chocolate, walnuts and orange develop into Turkish delight and summer flowers.
GLENMORANGIE 14-YEAR-OLD ELEMENTA
Originally released for the Travel Retail market, The Elementa was crafted by Glenmorangie as a way of celebrating the art of wood finishing! As such, this 14 year old was initially matured in bourbon casks before being transferred to charred virgin oak for a finishing period. The result? A superbly honeyed, fruity, and gently spicy Highland single malt.
GLENMORANGIE 16-YEAR-OLD THE TRIBUTE
1 Litre Bottle, 43%
A lightly peated release from Glenmorangie, this expression explores the distillery’s past, paying tribute to the historic use of a peat fired kiln. Aged in bourbon casks and married with Glenmorangie’s signature spirit, to achieve a clever balance of subtle peat smoke with their characteristic zest, cream and vanilla. This bottling was originally released for the Travel Retail market.
GLENMORANGIE ALLTA PRIVATE EDITION
Glenmorangie Allta is a limited-edition single malt released to mark the 10th anniversary of Glenmorangie’s Private Edition series. The yeasty, biscuit-y nose gives way to an archetypal Glenmorangie palate rich with floral flavours and zesty citrus, augmented by notes of freshly-baked bread, a light menthol freshness and a long, earthy finish. Allta, which means ‘wild’ in Scots Gaelic, is made using a previously-undiscovered strain of local yeast growing on the barley near the Glenmorangie distillery. This yeast has been used to ferment the barley on which it grew before distillation, lending the spirit not only a distinctive flavour, but an undeniable sense of place.
GLENMORANGIE 19-YEAR-OLD FINEST RESERVE
Initially released to travel retail in 2017, Glenmorangie 19 Year Old Finest Reserve was left undisturbed for 19 years in select slow-growth American white oak bourbon casks, before it was bottled at 43% ABV. A smooth, creamy and fruity expression, fabulous stuff from the Highland distillery.
Glenmorangie Astar was originally released in 2008, matured in bespoke casks made from oak from the Ozark mountains of Missouri - though it was discontinued in 2012. In 2017, Astar was born again! The 2017 release of Glenmorangie Astar was once again fully aged in bespoke casks made from oak from the Ozark mountains of Missouri.
GLENMORANGIE SPIOS PRIVATE EDITION 9
The name Spios, which is Scots Gaelic for 'spice', beautifully evokes this whisky's origins: it has been matured solely in casks that previously held American rye whiskey, a spirit known for its distinctive, spicy characteristics. Spios has a herbal nose and a rich, spicy palate, followed by a long, sweet finish.
Glenmorangie Spios is the ninth limited edition bottling in the distillery's Private Edition series, and the first single malt to have ever been entirely matured in American rye whiskey casks.
GLENMORANGIE BACALTA PRIVATE EDITION
Another addition to the Glenmorangie Private Edition range! Released in early 2017, Bacalta is the first expression from the distillery which has been finished in sun-baked Malmsey Madeira casks. Dr. Bill Lumsden had bespoke American oak casks made and heavily toasted, then seasoned with Malmsey wine and left to bake in the heat of Madeira's sun. The casks were emptied and shipped to Scotland to finish the Glenmorangie whisky, which had been matured in ex-bourbon barrels.
GLENMORANGIE THE TAYNE
1 Litre Bottle, 43%
Released at the start of 2016 for the Travel Retail market, The Tayne from Glenmorangie is finished in, unusually, amontillado sherry casks, Tayne is a fragant whisky with notes including rose petals, roast chestnuts, sweet toffee, Muscovado sugar and tropical fruits.
