Glenmorangie 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 43% abv
Glenmorangie 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky is a single malt whisky of noted distinction. Having spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks, approximately 30% is then transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, they are blended back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour.
Nose: A tantalising overflowing abundance of arresting aromas at the first nose. The rich, resinous quality of nuts cascades into a crisp toffee sweetness, merging with caressingly smooth, creamy vanilla.
Palate: At first, an accord of melting honey, creamy malt and aromatic florals. Then, a warm, syrupy nuttiness of hazelnuts and walnuts appear from the Oloroso Sherry casks in which the whisky has matured.
Finish: Lingering, with the sweetness of dried fruit and the nutty dryness of Sherry.
