Colour Sparkling gold
Nose A full and fruity aroma with orange and honeyed apricots. Creamy vanilla candy, toasted almonds, and a hint of coconut and sugared almonds.
Palate A rich, smooth silky texture, followed by bursts of poached pear in syrup, apricot, and zesty lemon. Ginger and cinnamon spices sizzle before being tempered by a cooling freshness.
Finish Long and lingering, with layers of orange oil, toasty oak, and eucalyptus.
Food Match Greek salad with plenty of Feta, followed by strawberries and cream.
Just a short drive from the distillery itself, Glenmorangie’s 440-acre Cadboll Estate produces just enough of their own unique strain of barley for no more than two weeks production per year. A lot of time and care goes into making sure the exceptionally precious barley is exactly what Dr Bill Lumsden’s after. He specifies the varieties and fields they’ll be planted in, and upon harvest makes sure the barley’s dried and malted just as he chooses.
Dr Bill said: “Our rugged and remote homeland is so special, that we wanted to share its spirit and flavour in this delicious whisky, crafted at Glenmorangie from field to glass. The Cadboll Estate barley brings an extra creaminess to our delicate, fruity spirit. For those of you who do not live in the Highlands – in other words, most of you – enjoying our Cadboll Estate whisky is the next best thing to being here.”
The small first release distilled in 2004 was followed by Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate 15 Year Old 2005 Vintage, which reflects the subtle changes in the barley crop.

This second batch release of Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate 15 Year Old has wondrously silken depths; it layers rich cinnamon and ginger, orange, eucalyptus, and creamy vanilla candy.
