Producer Information

Key Information

All Scotch Whisky is matured in oak casks and the nature and history of the cask greatly influences the flavour and character of the whisky.

For Glenmorangie, the best casks are those that have previously held American bourbon. The bourbon seasons the wood, releases its natural sweetness and absorbs undesirable flavours, but does not smother the subtle flavour of the whisky.

This unique range of malt whiskies has initially been matured in American oak casks for at least 10 years and transferred into casks that have previously contained Burgundy for a further period of maturation.

The Glenmorangie Wood Finish Range is an exceptional range of malt whiskies that can be served confidently at any time, , but is best served after dinner.

Colour - Rich chestnut gold.

Nose - At full strength, the confectionery sweetness of candied honeycomb in milk chocolate stimulates the senses, with aromatic top notes of spearmint and simmering coffee.

With water, the aroma is reminiscent of a summer fruit pudding - a burst of intense ripe fruits with plums, raspberries, figs and banana softened by sponge and cream; a dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg spice, and covered with flakes of sugared almonds.

Taste - Rich, fruity and sweet with an intriguing range of mouthwatering and tingly flavours.
The taste meets all the expectations promised on the nose with balanced sweetness, fruit and spicy notes. Initially, there is a burst of mouthwatering plums and raspberries, followed by tingly spices (cinnamon and nutmeg), and progressing to a lightly mouthcoating effect, reminiscent of sucking boiling sweets (oil of cloves). Later there is the gentle dryness of cocoa powder, grape must and almonds.

Finish - Long and ´tingly´ with raspberries, plums and cocoa powder.
