Glenmorangie 18 Year Old Extremely Rare Scotch
Part of Glenmorangie’s Prestige Range, this 18 year old
spent its first 15 years in American white oak bourbon casks. After this time,
30% was transferred to Oloroso sherry casks where it spent its final days, as
the rest remained in bourbon casks. After 18 years has passed in total, the
whisky was reunited and bottled at 43% ABV. A thick, creamy and fruity single
malt Scotch whisky presented in a wonderfully elegant bottle. It
certainly looks prestigious.
The last hours of a perfect autumn day when the world
looks like a golden dream filled with cookie-colored leaves and butterscotch
skies... What would that taste like? The answer is, this dazzling, luminous
whisky – a rhapsody of warm tones like purple heather, leaves swirling in the
wind and hues of lemon, copper and gold.
To create it, we gather the silky, fruity spirit from our
giraffe-high stills and let it steep in American oak casks. No less than 15
years later, we transfer a portion into Oloroso sherry casks for three more
years. Once 18 years have passed, we reunite them to create its warm balance of
sweet, floral lushness. Rich marmalade flavors brush against honey and fig,
touches of caramelized orange and far-off campfire smoke. Have a taste, and let
your imagination wander to the edge of an autumn afternoon.
