The 4th release in Glenmorangie's exceptional Bond House No 1 series. This takes it's name from the largest 19th century warehouse at Glenmorangie, which, in 1990, was transformed into the current still house. This very limited edition is a 1991 vintage, 26 year old single malt that has been created from 3 distinct parcels of whisky, one finished in Oloroso sherry butts, one finished in Burgundy casks and a small proportion of whisky matured in new toasted oak.
Bottled at 43%abv, this is a whisky with a rich, full and fruit forward character.
Nose - Laden with apricots, plums and baked apples, this fruity nose is deep and mellow. Then chocolate and the gentlest hint of oak emerge with suggestions of truffles and star anse.
Palate - A subtly peppery texture heralds a surge of ripe fruits, such as cherry, raspberry, plum and stewed apples, swathed in an abundnce of milk chocolate.
Finish - The spirit's citrus notes ebb and flow alongside waves of fruit, sweet spice and oak drawn from its journey to maturity, in a long and undulating finish.
