Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1996 in its elegant casing is a single malt from the Glenmorangie distillery in the north of Scotland.
Aged 23 years, Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1996 is more than a pleasure for your palate.
The custom casks in which the Grand Vintage Malt 1996 is aged are hand-selected by the whisky makers themselves in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. Only the finest American white oak is used to achieve that distinctive creaminess. The oak is then air-dried, hand-crafted in barrels to exacting specifications and seasoned with select bourbon. In 1996, these casks were filled with Glenmorangie spirit and aged for 23 years.
A delicious whisky from Glenmorangie, the limited edition that will be adored by lovers of whisky old and new.
Tasting notes for Glenmorangie Grand Vintage 1996
Colour: Bright golden sunshine
Nose: Fresh, floral and perfumed, with hints of roses, carnations, jasmine and a curious herbal note of coriander. Delicious mandarins and pears follow, with a lovely caramel sweetness, reminiscent of mixed fruit jellies. A splash of water releases even more floral notes of carnation and geranium, along with some soft, buttery vanilla.
Flavour: A zesty citrus mouthfeel leads to a powerful burst of citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons, controlled by the thread of soft, sweet vanilla and fudge. The finesse of a whisky of this age is quite remarkable, with gentle spices, such as ginger and sweet chilli, and subtle oak notes.
