Glenmorangie's first single malt whisky fully matured in American ex-rye whiskey casks (and for that matter Scotland's first ever 100% ex-rye cask aged malt as well)
The 9th release in the Private Edition series that focus on experimental cask finishing and production methods.
Spios is Scots Gaelic for "Spice" and pronounced "spee-oss" and reflects the spicy elements normally associated with Rye whisky from North America.
Distillery tasting notes:
Colour: Light Gold
Nose: First entices with its fgresh and herbal nose, hinting at cherry, clove and mint toffee, followed by scents of green grass. A splash of water releases more perfumed notes, both crisp and clean-and an inviting complexity of herbal tones.
Palate: Rye's characteristic spice bursts forth, as tastes of toffee, clove and cinnamon mingle with nutmeg and sweet, buttery vanilla.
Finish: Rich, sweet and lingering, with toffee and brazil nut emerging alongside a citrus tang.
Glenmorangie's renowned smoothness invites rye's subtleties to shine through in a way that many others would not.
