One of the very successful Glenmorangie 'wood finishes'.

A remarkable malt, antique gold in colour: golden but with a rosy hue. This whisky has been matured for at least 12 years in American white oak casks and racked for several years into Ruby Port pipes for 'finishing'.

Malt that's matured as normal in traditional American white oak ex-bourbon casks is then transfered into casks that used to hold fine port for a final period of maturation.

The end result is a malt whisky with the colour of antique copper and a unique taste.

Add a drop of water and the aromas you get predominate with butterscotch and dark chocolate. But there are also fresh minty notes and a certain dryness a bit like lint.

The mouth-feel is really smooth, like 'sipping velvet', now that might be taking it a bit far, but it is voluptuously smooth. Perfect after a good meal, but it's such a fine, if slightly different, Glenmorangie that why wait until after dinner?

This Glenmorangie is the most beautiful and sublime tasting whisky I have had in a long time. Silky smooth and very woody in taste a real pleasure to drink, would recommend this whisky to any avid whisky drinker.

A wonderful whisky. The Port Wood finish gives an added, very welcome, smoothness.
