Only the second cask bottled by The Scotch Malt whisky Society from Glenmorangie. While the SWMS were bought by Glenmorangie in 2004 it took an extra couple of years before they managed to acquire a cask for release in the society's range. The society describe it as "Everything ... and the kitchen sink"

Producer's NoteThe owners of this best-selling malt have long had a deep understanding of wood, so much so that they specify very precisely how their casks are made and seasoned. This is from a first-fill "designer hogshead" (air dried wood, seasoned with Jack Daniels). Apples, pears, bananas, cherries, jam, honey, toast, stewed apricots (pause for breath), concentrated apple juice, Golden Syrup, stewed red fruits, vanilla, strudel pastry, pear drops, cinnamon, Bourbon, custard and fire embers. "Phew, some nose". Chocolate, vanilla, coconut, fudge, green apples, oranges, pastry, mashed banana, burnt toast. "Phew some flavour!" With the addition of water the smells and flavours mashed together with a big jug of cream. Tasty!
