Light russet color. Warm spice aromas mix with aromas of smooth chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and caramel toffee. On the palate, deliciously sweet sherry flavored sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butterscotch combine to create complex warm spices. Long and satisfying finish with spiced orange and chocolate covered hazelnuts.
This signature expression is first aged in American oak ex-bourbon casks for smoothness. Glenmorangie then finishes this single malt whisky in hand-selected Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Sourced from Jerez in Spain, the sherry casks bring rich raisin intensity, toffee and spices to Glenmorangie's renowned smooth style, enjoyed and awarded across the world.
After spending 17 years as a whisky distiller, William Matheson left his job and sought to start his own distillery. His vision was to create an exceptional, exquisitely smooth whisky.
In 1843, his vision became a reality when he took over the Morangie farm and founded Glenmorangie.
Originally 16 men, an unbroken chain of experts worked together to craft Glenmorangie through the centuries. These men passed down their knowledge and expertise of the heralded Single Malt from generation to generation. This time-honored tradition preserved the quintessential Single Malt of Scotland.
In the far north of Scotland, near the ancient Royan Burgh of Tain, lies Glenmorangie. 'The Glen of Tranquility' where malt whisky has been distilled since it began. The distillery has an air of timelessness; the methods and craft they employ today differ little from those of their forbears.
