Personalised Glenmorangie The Original Single Malt Scotch Whisky 40% 700ml
Glenmorangie distillery lies just north of Tain, on the wind-swept coastline of Easter Ross. The distillery has only sixteen distillery workers – two for each of its eight stills. These stills are the tallest found in the Highlands, of the same design as those used in the 1880’s which were actually second-hand gin stills. Their height means that only the purest vapours reach their necks and condense. The owners Macdonald and Muir take great care in cask selection, using US oak from the Osark mountains. The ‘designer hogsheads’ which they began to use in 1995 (when the charming Mr Bill Lumsden arrived at the company) are now showing dividends in the wonderful Artisan Cask. They also use a hard water source, which is unusual.
The original expression of the Glenmorangie distillery is an elegant, floral spirit and the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. A ten-year-old single malt, Glenmorangie Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland’s tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks. It is here, maturing for ten long years in a range of ex-bourbon casks such as our famous slow-grown and air-dried ‘designer casks’ from Missouri, that this raw spirit develops a perfect balance between sweetness and complexity. Resulting in a mature spirit that is soft, mellow and creamy. Perfect for enjoying at any time.
