Bond House No.1
Glenmorangie’s Vintage Collection, Bond House No.1 is a series of exceptional Single Malts created from The Highland Distillery’s most precious parcels of mature whisky.
Our bond house No.1 Single Malt whiskies have been created and long-matured at our distillery. The bond warehouse No.1 was the largest of Glenmorangie’s traditional 19th Century warehouses and in 1990 it became our still house, the heart of our whisky creation. The exclusive Glenmorangie releases from Bond House No.1 are exceptionally smooth, complex and elegant.
The 1989 Scottish Barley Harvest was demanding, yet Distillers were able to create the finest spirit imaginable with it, a kind of alchemy perhaps.
In 1990 this extraordinary spirit began its long maturation in the very best ex-bourbon casks and a smaller number of the finest former Sherry casks.
Our grand Vintage Malt 1990 is elegant and precious, it is marked with its year of creation and marked for greatness. Astonishingly vibrant for its ages, the 1990 displays an enticing Aroma which belies its age, It is fresh, yet heady. Also notes of both fruit and floral.
The Taste is creamy and silky with succulent sweet flavours like orange syrup notes and vanilla, there are herbal top notes of gooseberry and menthol.
Also are baked fruits and deeper suggestions of maltiness, as well as a hint of clove and oak tannin on the Finish. It is distinguished and complex. An exquisite single malt to be savoured and enjoyed.
