About the Whisky:
Glenmorangie is a famous single malt distillery situated just north of the town of Tain in Ross-shire, in the Highlands region of Scotland.
Glemorangie is one of the best-known Scottish distilleries, despite its confusing pronunciation – it is pronounced with the emphasis on the second syllable, rather than on the first and third. Founded in 1843, Glenmorangie was one of the early leaders in exporting its product, despite the forced closure between 1931 and 1936 due to the effects of Prohibition.
The standard offering is the 10-year-old Original, but there are many expressions available. In fact, Glenmorangie was one of the first distilleries to experiment with different wood finishes for its whisky, where the spirit receives a second period of maturation (a finish) in a different type of barrel. Glenmorangie offer a range of finishes including Sherry, Port, Sauternes and Madeira.
The distillery is owned by the Glenmorangie Company – an arm of luxury goods company LVMH – which also owns the Islay distillery Ardbeg.
Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1997, is vivacious and floral. With a heart aged in rare Chateau Montrose red wine casks, from Saint-Estephe in Bordeaux, this single malt recalls a radiant new dawn at Glenmorangie.
Never attempted before or since at our Distillery, he hoped to create a Glenmorangie dramatically different from any other.
A full 13 years later, that single malt developed extraordinary berried depths. Delighted, Dr Bill began devising a complex marriage of casks to enhance its unparalleled taste. Taking whisky wholly aged in bourbon casks, he hinted at Glenmorangie's hallmark citrus notes. With whisky finished for many years in oloroso sherry casks, he brought layers of sweetness and spicy finesse, while a skilful selection of secret casks also played their part.
Aged to perfection over 23 years, Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1997 brims with red fruits and candied sweetness. As vivid as Dr Bill's dream for our whisky, it wondrously celebrates our kaleidoscopic style.
