The first release in the new Bond house No 1 collection from Glenmorangie is Grand Vintage Malt 1990, which was a memorable year for Glenmorangie as it was the year in which Warehouse No 1, where the Distillery’s casks of maturing spirit were kept, was transformed into a majestic still house, renowned today for having the tallest stills in Scotland.
Scoring a massive 94/100 points and a liquid gold award in Jim Murray's whisky bible
"Grand by name, grand by nature..almost.For a malt this outstandingly good, it really should have been at 46% minimum."
Replaces the now delisted 25 year old release.
Nose: Ripe orchard fruit, honeycomb, elegant spices, mellow oak, golden syrup sponge and vanilla custard, honey on brown bread, floating islands (soft meringue with caramel and vanilla cream)
Palate: Mandarin cheesecake, white chocolate, cinder toffee, orchard fruits, apricot jam, very soft and elegant oak, gentle spice, walnut whips, nougart and buttery toffee.
Finish: Very elegant and juicy with lots of ripe fruits, gentle sweet aromatic spice and a touch of mocha and walnut.
The trademark distillery fruit to the fore here, beautiful balance of Ex-Bourbon casks and a small percentage of Sherry casks working in perfect harmony to deliver a faultless Glenmorangie.
The whole package/box/presentation is on point too!
