Glenmorangie12 Years Old Malaga Cask Finish - Edition #1 Barrel Select Release
Alcohol 47.3% ABV.
Age 12 Year Old.
This astonishingly sweet, rich whisky was personally selected by Dr Bill Lumsden. Honeyed and gently spiced, it is finished in casks which once held one of the world’s rarest fortified wines. The single malt’s fruity, fragrant spirit was distilled on Monday, 18th February 2008, closely watched by our acclaimed Distillery Manager.
Cask Type Malaga Wine Cask
First it spent eight years in hand-picked American oak bourbon casks, gaining mellow, citrus notes. Then, Dr Bill chose a select parcel for a unique experiment with historic Malaga wine casks, from southern Spain. So rare they once faced extinction, finally, sourcing a tiny handful, he filled them with the whisky, imagining a multitude of sweet and syrupy tastes. Finished in their depths for four years, this single malt is everything he had hoped for. Threading citrus vibrancy with brown sugar, raisins and honey, it brings a new-found richness to Glenmorangie’s soft and creamy style.
Style Single Malt Whisky.
To this day, we honour the Distillery’s provenance in our award-winning single malts. Its pure, smooth spirit is distilled in Scotland’s tallest stills, matured in the finest casks and perfected by The Men of Tain. And, in the hands of these select craftsmen, the guardians of our spirit, Glenmorangie will surely delight malt whisky lovers for generations to come.
Bottler Glenmorangie.
Distillery Glenmorangie.
In 1843, William Matheson founded the Glenmorangie Distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Inspired by the Distillery’s peaceful surroundings on the banks of the Dornoch Firth, he brought forth a pioneering single malt whisky wonderfully complex and exceptionally smooth.
Country Scotland.
Region Highland.
Chill Filtered No.
Colour/Appearance Chestnut
Nose
Sweet, rich scents of honey, mead, toffee and baking bread entwine with aromatic tea leaves. Then comes a subtle, perfumed top note of stewed herbs and red fruits, followed by milk chocolate hints. A splash of water releases wood incense, roasting chestnuts and muscovado sugar.
Palate
A rich, oily texture brings sultanas, raisins and dates bursting on to the palate. Mandarin orange, milk chocolate, honey and more brown sugar come to the fore, beautifully woven with vibrant citrus.
Finish
Then cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and star anise emerge, before hazelnut, honey and gentle oak shine through in a long, mellow finish
