In 1843, William Matheson founded the Glenmorangie Distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Inspired by the Distillery’s peaceful surroundings on the banks of the Dornoch Firth, he brought forth a pioneering single malt whisky wonderfully complex and exceptionally smooth.
This 18 Years Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, they blended back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour.
Nose - Rich, rounded and sweet with dried fruits and a complex floral fragrance.
Palate - Well balanced. Honey, malt and flowery scents. Dates and figs emerge in the background with a hint of wood smoke.
Finish - Long and enticing with the sweetness of dried fruit and a subtle dryness.
