The 1995 Grand Vintage release is the fifth instalment in the collection. This expression is zesty and vibrant. Aged for 23 years, this Whisky was distilled the year that Dr Bill Lumsden (the Cask Master) first joined Glenmorangie. Matured in ex-Bourbon casks and Oloroso Sherry casks then finally finished for more than a decade in prestigious Margaux red wine casks.
Deep and generous, with scents of butter popcorn and toffee apples enriched by nutmeg and baking bread. Then cinnamon and clove surge forward, with a hint of chocolate. A few drops of water bring an abundance of honey and baked fruits, coated in more milk chocolate, before Glenmorangie’s citrus and vanilla hallmarks emerge in scents of clementine and creamy fudge
Peppery textures bring a coolness to the palate, ushering in tastes of clove and further toffee apples, with cocoa, mint and a dusting of lemon sherbet
Citrus notes linger, zesty and bittersweet, then fade into red berries and pear crumble, with a whisper of oak
