You will like to know that…

On the banks of Dornoch Firth in the Scottish Highlands, the Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843. From this peaceful setting comes a pure single malt whisky that is a delight to the palate. The Glenmorangie Distillery is also home to the tallest stills in Scotland. These 8-metre (26-foot) stills and what ensures that only the purest vapours make it to the top of the 5 ¼-metre (16.4-foot) neck. This, in turn, means that Glenmorangie whisky is exceptionally smooth.

Glenmorangie 18-Year-Old begins with high-quality barley. After distillation, this whisky spends 15 years in American white oak casks. Then, 30% of this is moved into Spanish Oloroso casks for an additional three years while the rest remains in their bourbon casks. When all of the whisky has reached the well-matured age of 18, they are married back together into a beautifully well-rounded single malt.

The elegant bottle in which Glenmorangie 18-Year-Old is encased is quite eye-catching. It makes the golden liquor inside that much more pleasing to pour into a glass. The well-rounded single malt is excellent to pair with chocolate or caramel, as they will bring out its nutty, fruity, floral side. A braised beef would also play well against the rich fig and honey aspects of this complex spirit.

Description of Glenmorangie 18 Year old

Glenmorangie 18 Year old

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: A dark, golden honey.
  • Aroma: Citrus and cream slide up the bottle to be complemented by warm smells of toffee creme brulee. Fire-cracked nuts swirl around the glass, releasing the sweet smells of autumn day honey.
  • Taste: Orange citrus and grapefruit hit the palate in a smooth yet prominent statement. Oak spice and soft-blended honey follow the taste to a refined vivacity.Aged in both old Spanish sherry casks and American bourbon oak barrels, the intake of this whiskey is smart and complex. The sherry Oloroso casks have passed on a sweet raisin herbaceousness that blends fluidly into the taste buds. These make way for the nutty earth.The taste remains well-balanced and has a long lasting finish to ponder over the development of palate.

PRODUCER: Glenmorangie

COUNTRY: Scotland, United Kingdom

PRODUCTION DETAILS: The prestigious addition to Glenmorangie's carefully produced selections. The scotch is first aged for 15 years in an American white oak bourbon cask. Afterwards, 30% of the mix is stored in a Spanish Oloroso case where it spends the remaining 3 years. The other 70% remains in the American oak barrels to further capture the smoky-sweet flavours. After a total of 18 years, the two mixes are married back together in one dignified bottle.

4 /5

- Honey and caramel sweetness with some peppery oak and deep citrus notes. The rich finish has a hint of raisins and walnuts.
This rare expression of Glenmorangie is an attractive deep gold colour.
- It is distinctive from the Ten Years Old - although the floral bouquet and citrus notes are still present - and avoids the heavy 'darkness' of other aged malts.
- It spends a final period of maturation in Sherry wood, which lends a round richness.

Glenmorangie 18 years Contents: 0.7 liter 43% vol. With dye Tasting Notes: Deep gold, full-bodied, mild with a distinctive character. The taste is balanced between dry and sweet notes. Information In 1843, the Simple tile brewery was converted into a distillery. It was decided in 1920 that should be considered as the whiskey produced single malt to bottle. Glenmorangie first to bring distillery whiskeys at cask-strength on the market. The stills are 5.13 meters and is the highest in Scotland. The water (it is very hard and rich in minerals) from Tarlogie Hill. The spring rises on the premises. Glenmorangie likes to experiment. Many different bottlings are represented on the market. The standard bottlings have an age of 10 -, 15 - and 18 years and mature in ex-bourbon casks. Also whiskeys with a finish in sherry, port and Madeira casks. After 10 years of storage, the whiskeys for about two years, then transferred to the barrels just mentioned. The Ergebis convinced.
