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.
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.
