A rich, deep blend from this Highlands distillery. Aromas of toasted oak, vanilla and walnuts dance with a palate of dried flowers and pie spice. A pleasing smokiness finishes with lingering chocolate flavors. A velvety smooth treat.

Winemaker's Notes:

The provenance of Glenmorangie is its lifeblood , its heart, its soul. Standing on the north side of the Tain peninsula in Ross-shire, overlooking the Dornosh Fort, the dystillery's gentle climate protects the distillery spirit as it quietly journeys towards maturity. Glenmorangie is unusual, probably even unique , amongst single Scotch malt whiskies, in that it has most the incredible elegance and complexity of flavour - described as 'Kaleidoscopic'. The 'Glenmorangie 18 Years Old' displays a honeyed gold colour. The cornucopia of an autumn harvest festival table describes the overflowing abundance of arresting aromas that tantalise at the first nose of Glenmorangie 18 Years Old. The rich, resinous quality of nuts cascades into a crisp toffee sweetness of crème brulée, merging with caressingly smooth, creamy vanilla. Hints of vibrant oranges & lemons are found. Crunchy textured walnuts follow, oozing into golden honeycomb that trickles over sun-ripened sticky dates. Then sparkling floral tones emerge, taking the edge off any cloying sweetness, with the green, almost herbal bouquet of geranium, tempered with musky jasmine and the bright, sharp clarity of narcissus. With water, 18 Years Old reveals a rich oaken, balsamic character that yields to soft vanilla. At this moment, the signature Glenmorangie fruity complex reveals itself in golden apricots and dates mingled with hazelnuts. On the palate the'Glenmorangie 18 Years Old' slips like silk over the tongue with a full, rounded flavour, starting with grapefruit & orange. The palate is then entranced with an accord of melting honey, creamy malt and aromatic florals that segue into the warm, syrupy nuttiness of hazelnuts and walnuts from the Oloroso sherry casks in which the whisky is matured. Savour the rich, sticky date and fig flavours as they are heightened by the unexpected caress of woodsmoke. Lingering and enticing finish with the subtle sweetness of dried fruit and the nutty dryness of sherry.
