Glenmorangie 18 Year Old Extremely Rare Single Malt Whisky: Supreme Award Winner: Gift Boxed
Gold Outstanding – International Wine & Spirit Competition
Here is the perfect gift for your favourite whisky lover: the superb Glenmorangie 18 Year Old extremely rare single malt whisky.
Part of Glenmorangie’s Prestige Range, a thick, creamy and fruity single malt presented in a wonderfully elegant bottle, it certainly looks prestigious. The 18 Year Old has always been one of the best of the Glenmorangie’s. And it has won a fistful of medals from the top whisky awards, including the Gold Outstanding title in the Scotch Single Malt Highland section of the International Wine & Spirit Contest Awards and Best Highland Single Malt in the World Whiskies Awards.
The IWSC judges noted: ‘Enticing nose laden with ripe tropical fruits and full array of spices. Luscious and full in the mouth with elegant balance and fine texture. Flavours of honeycomb and citrus develop and some blackcurrants enter the mix. Gorgeous complexity and lots of mature, mellow notes yet very spritely movement across the palate. Long, mellow finish.’
The whisky is meticulopusly made. After 15 years’ maturation in American white-oak, ex-bourbon casks, around 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso sherry casks for three years. When both parts have reached 18 years, they are then blended together. The Oloroso casks provide an incredible degree of vibrancy, while the American oak balances the raisin-like sweetness of the sherry.
The Glenmorangie 18 Year Old makes a very discerning gift.
