A limited-edition gift set from this venerable old distillery, known as the Explorer Collection, this offers an exploration of Glenmorangie’s terrific range.
The set contains a trifecta of 350ml bottles: the 10 year old Original, and a pair of 12 year olds, the Lasanta and the Quinta Ruban.
The Original is Glenmorangie’s flagship introductory bottling, offering a taste of what the distillery has to offer. This whisky really showcases the house-style of Glenmorangie’s spirit, with plenty of light, floral flavours, and notes of toffee, dried fruit and honey.
The Lasanta (which takes its name from the Gaelic for “warmth”) is aged a little longer, for 12 years, and has been finished in oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. This whisky is also bottled at the higher proof of 43% ABV, meaning that all the sherry-rich notes of dried fruit and spice have a touch more warmth and power to them.
Completing the set is the 12 year old Quinta Ruban. This whisky has been finished for a period in port casks, imparting sweeter notes of red berries and warm red wine. This whisky is bottled at the higher proof of 46% ABV, and without chill filtration, letting the drinker fully experience the fruiter, spicier flavours.
These smaller bottles are charmingly presented in a gift box that reflects the design of Glenmorangie’s Original label. A perfect option for every intrepid explorer of the malt whisky world.
