Showcasing Glenmorangie’s Grand Vintage Malt
In their quest for that perfect shot of single malt, Glenmorangie’s 23 year-old Grand Vintage Malt 1996 showcases the oldest whisky matured in their bespoke casks.
Distilled in Scotland’s tallest stills, it is uniquely delicate and ripe for experimentation. Believing that wood could unlock new depths of flavour in this spirit, the esteemed whisky makers vowed to create the casks of their dreams.
The Highland whisky makers journeyed to the forests of Missouri’s Ozark Mountains in the USA and handpicked American white oaks to give more creaminess to Glenmorangie. Then, the oak is carefully dried and handcrafted into casks made to their exact specifications, and seasoned it with select bourbon, to bring the wood to its best. By 1996, some of the first bespoke casks were ready and then filled the liquid gold that was Glenmorangie’s spirit.
Under Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Whisky Creation, an exclusive whisky with a unique, creamy depth and a fruity, floral intensity was created, aged entirely in first-fill casks. This would be the sixth release in the Bond House No. 1 Collection.
The whiskies of Glenmorangie’s Bond House No. 1 vintage series are created from some of the Distillery’s most prized parcels of aged whisky, for particularly delicious results. The series is named after the largest of Glenmorangie’s 19th century Bonded Warehouses.
