Glenmorangie

The Finish Line

Glenmorangie boasts Scotland’s tallest stills and is famous for its honeyed, floral spirit. It was also one of the first distilleries to experiment with maturing its whiskies in different cask types, taking its award-winning Highland malt in new directions, adding subtle nuances of flavour.

We're focusing on three of its classic core expressions, all of which have been finished in different cask types, and are worthy of a whisky drinker's attention.

After a decade maturing in bourbon casks, picking up aromas of toffee and vanilla, Lasanta spends a further two years in two types of sherry cask – oloroso and Pedro Ximénez – adding rich notes of honeycomb, spiced orange and chocolate.

Tasting Notes from the Producer

Nose
Warm spices mix with smooth chocolate-covered raisins, honeycomb and caramel toffee.
Palate
Deliciously sweet sherry-flavoured sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butterscotch combine to create complex warm spices.

      A decadent offering from Glenmorangie. Nectar d'Or is finished in casks that previously held Sauternes, the prized sweet wine from southern France, adding luscious notes of citrus, dried fruit and white chocolate.

      Tasting Notes from the Producer

      Nose
      Lime and orange rind, sultanas and dates give a rich fruity flavour laced with tantalising spices of coconut and nutmeg.
      Palate
      Ginger, nutmeg and toasted almonds bring a deep, warming taste interwoven with a syrupy lemon meringue and honeycomb middle.
      Finish
      Long and lusciously sweet finish with lemon zest, white chocolate, vanilla and traces of ginger and nutmeg.

          Glenmorangie has ramped up the fruitiness with Quinta Ruban, which spends time in ruby-port pipes from Portugal, adding notes of Seville oranges, chocolate and floral hints. Great balance between juicy fruit and rich chocolate.

          Tasting Notes from the Producer

          Nose
          Dark mint chocolate, tangerines and Seville oranges mingle with sandalwood and walnut before giving way to a spicy finish of pepper and nutmeg.
          Palate
          Mint chocolate and walnuts envelop the palate like velvet, laying the foundations for rose, Turkish Delight and sweet Seville oranges.
          Finish
          Long-lasting silky aftertaste leaving dark-chocolate mints and traces of orange.

              About Glenmorangie

              Located in Tain in the Scottish Highlands, Glenmorangie is one of the best-known single malts in the world. Its Port Wood Finish, released in 1994, marked a series of whiskies finished in a huge variety of alternative casks, from Cognac to Rhône wine to rye whiskey, but the heart of the range remains The Original, a benchmark Highland malt with notes of flowers, honey and vanilla.
