GLENMORANGIE 1996 Grand Vintage 43%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 58378
The exclusive vintages of our Bond House No. 1 Collection are all shaped by their own unique stories. Each distilled in a single year, they are captured at their peak by our skilful whisky creators, and shared at their remarkable best. The Collection’s sixth release, Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1996, is luxurious and creamy. Long aged in a handful of our first custom-designed casks, this quintessential Glenmorangie honours our pioneering quest to find the perfect casks for our whisky. On our search for those casks, we journeyed to the northern slopes of Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. There, we found slow-growth American white oaks with a particularly porous structure. Inviting greater synergy between wood and spirit, they would magnify Glenmorangie’s creamy character. Aged entirely in first-fill casks, Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1996 showcases a supreme creaminess from the wood, entwined with a deep concentration of the spirit’s fruity, floral influences Marvellously rounded over 23 years, this is our luxurious tribute to the pursuit of perfection.
- Nose : Fresh and perfumed, like a bouquet of roses, carnations and jasmine, with a piquant hint of coriander. Mandarin orange and pear follow on, enhanced by a fruity, candied sweetness. A splash of water reveals more carnations, scents of geraniums and gentle, buttery vanilla.
- Palate : A zesty, citrus mouthfeel brings a surge of oranges and lemons, tempered by ripples of vanilla and fudge. Next, with remarkable finesse for a whisky of such age, come subtle notes of ginger, sweet chilli and oak.
- Overall : Delicate and dancing, with the softness of cake mix, almonds and pear.
- The brand
The Glenmorangie distillery has, since 1843, produced its famous single malt in the north of the Highlands. It owns the tallest stills in Scotland, a legacy of the gin stills installed when it first began. A pioneer of maturation in ex-bourbon casks in the 1960s, Glenmorangie also began experimenting with different finishes very early on thanks to the help and great skill of the famous nose, Dr Bill Lumsden. Its series of finishes aim to marry the finesse of this single malt with the flavours and tannins of different wines during a second maturation that lasts around two years. Find out more
