Glenmorangie’s limited edition single malts have taken out two gold awards in the International World Spirits Competition this past year alone, and Whisky Hall of Fame inductee Dr Bill Lumsden hasn’t let landing the title of Master Distiller of the Year on seven separate occasions get in the way of creating a bespoke dream dram for The Whisky Club.
This rare cask creation from Glenmorangie is the first time this old Highland distillery has released an exclusive collaboration and, boy, are you in for a real treat with this one.
Highly sought after and exquisitely hard to come by, Amontillado barrels were sourced from the legendary Miguel Martin Sherry bodega in the south of Spain to finish Glenmorangie’s famous single malt for a luxurious four years. These casks are Dr Bill’s personal favourite and it’s been a labour of love for him to find these rich and rare barrels to create such a divine single malt, non-chill filtered and no colour added, exclusive for Club Members.
This single malt fantasy really is the ultimate Glenmorangie experience: beautifully mouthcoating, with the aroma of freshly baked orange and poppy seed cake coupled with peaches in syrup. And the palate is simply brimming with orange sherbet and ginger snaps interwoven with rich sherried oak and honey-glazed nuts.
If you’re familiar with Glenmorangie, home of the tallest stills in Scotland, then it will come as no surprise that this 12 year old, 46% ABV bespoke drop is sumptuously slow on the palate, with a lingering viscous finish that just won’t stop.
With the hugely popular Glenmorangie 12 Year Old Malaga and 15 Year Old Cadboll Estate long gone, this is one dram you’ll want to Double Up on before it’s too late.
As Dr Bill has confessed, "This is niche, this is limited, and I’m not certain when or if I will use Amontillado casks again. So grab yourself a bottle while you can, and sip and savour and enjoy it.”
